Erik ten Hag made four changes for Manchester United’s FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham and was without the injured Raphael Varane.

United have their sights set on a League and FA Cup double but Marco Silva’s Fulham will hope to end their run at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag made four changes to the side that beat Real Betis in the Europa League on Thursday night, with Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer coming into central midfield.

Luke Shaw returns at left-back and Jadon Sancho also starts, with Tyrell Malacia and Facundo Pellistri dropping to the bench.

£82m summer signing Antony is back on the bench following a period of illness but Casemiro misses out as he serves the first of four matches out through suspension.

Centre-back Varane was also absent for Manchester United as he is struggling with a minor injury, with United hopeful he will be fit for the trip to Newcastle United after the international break.
