Manchester United, positioned in the middle of the table, will face Fulham, a team with significant wins against Aston Villa and West Ham.

Due to a muscle injury, Erik Ten Hag will be unable to utilise the services of the in-form striker Rasmus Højlund.  

United's expectations surrounding Erik ten Hag's selection did not result in a noteworthy performance from the team. 

Calvin Bassey scored for Fulham in the last-minute, marking Fulham's first victory at Old Trafford since 2003 

United suffered their first defeat in six league matches and currently sit in sixth place in the table with 44 points. 

Fulham is currently in the 12th position in the league with 32 points as of this moment in time within the league.  

The match marked the first win for the Cottagers at Old Trafford since 2003 and widened the gap between United and Aston Villa to eight points in the race for the fourth Champions League spot. 

Ten Hag is competing to retain his job in front of Ratcliffe and Sir Dave Brailsford, who were present at Old Trafford 

Once more, Manchester United was forced to face the reality of the situation: In light of Fulham's loss, Paul Merson addressed the media.
