Manchester United return to FA Cup action this weekend to host Fulham in the quarter-finals.

A win will send United in the semi-finals at Wembley, moving a step closer to a second trophy of the season.

Former FA Cup winner Gary Pallister is backing the Red Devils to get the win, suggesting Fulham won’t have enough to cause an upset.

Fulham have had a strong season and sit in ninth place in the Premier League table.

Pallister backs United for win

Speaking to MUTV after Manchester United’s win over Real Betis, Pallister says while he is unsure how Casemiro will be replaced amid his suspension.

He said: “I’m confident we win the game. There is concern how the midfield will work.

“Fulham are a decent side, but I don’t think they are a really good side. I don’t think they are anything to fear.”

Fulham did give United a tough game in the Premier League earlier this season, with Alejandro Garnacho scoring a late winner and Christian Eriksen netting the opener.

Both of those players will miss this game through injury, while Casemiro begins his four-game suspension.

Fulham also have Aleksandr Mitrovic available – he missed the league game in November with injury.

Former United player Andreas Pereira is also a dangerman, he is enjoying a strong season for his new side after leaving the Red Devils last summer.

United could keep 3-1 streak alive

Manchester United have won every game in the FA Cup this season by the same 3-1 scoreline.

It is United’s fourth consecutive home match in the competition, following wins over Everton, Reading, and West Ham.
