After a very rare weekend off, Manchester United are back in Premier League action on Tuesday night against Fulham.

For the first time since March 2020, fans will be allowed back inside Old Trafford.

That should see the anti-Glazer protests continue as well as giving the players a boost with the fans behind them.

Fulham are already relegated and will return to the Championship after just one season in the top flight.

That means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should oversee three points in this one but here is a look at three decisions for him to consider ahead of the game…

How to break the mini-slump

United have now lost three of their last four games.

There are mitigating circumstances, but that’s a poor run for a club of United’s expectations an ambitions at any time.

The defeat in Rome ‘didn’t matter’ because United got through to the Europa League final regardless, but it was an awful performance has sparked a loss of momentum.

Solskjaer will hope that a weekend off to rest and recover after a gruelling schedule is all his side needs.

But there has to be more authority, intensity and confidence in the performances.


United need to arrive in Gdansk full of confidence and on a decent run of form. That starts with three points here.

Any room for sentiment?

This is United’s final home game of the season.

That means it’ll be the last chance for some players to play at Old Trafford.

Sergio Romero is surely set to exit this summer, and a send-off in front of fans would be a good way to sign off for a player who never let United down.

Juan Mata could perhaps be in a similar position. But is Solskjaer thinking down those lines?

Perhaps if United had been flying going into this game and second was sealed already, he might have been more likely to go down that route.

Rest the top stars?

Does Solskjaer take the chance to give his best players an extended rest before the Europa League final?

That’s what Jose Mourinho did in the lead up to the 2017 showpiece, making changes for United’s two final matches of the season, against Southampton and Crystal Palace.

It paid dividends, as United won 2-0 in Stockholm.

The situation was slightly different as United were languishing in sixth place regardless of what they did late on in the season.

United could seal second with a win here. So maybe Solskjaer will play his best team here, get the job done and then make changes at Wolves on the final day of the season.
