Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Old Trafford will host Sunday’s FA Cup game between Manchester United and Fulham. The Red Devils failed to impress in a goalless draw with Southampton, but it has to be noted that midfielder Casemiro was sent off after 34 minutes. The Brazil international misses the Fulham game through suspension, while both Eriksen and Van de Beek remain in the recovery room. Martial and Sabitzer are major doubts.
The Cottagers, on the other hand, are enjoying a successful season, but given their difficulties at the back in a 3-0 loss to Arsenal, we predict that Manchester United will advance to the FA Cup semis. As for the capital club, all Kurzawa, Cairney, and Kebano remain on the sidelines with injuries. In their last meeting in the English top flight Manchester United defeated Fulham 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the home side.

Bruno Fernandes is a Portuguese footballer who used to play for Novara before joining Udinese in a co-ownership deal in the summer of 2013. The Portuguese midfielder scored his first goal for the club in a 3-3 draw with Napoli on 7 December, 2013.

Soriano He played 33 games for the Zebrette in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign, scoring three goals for the club, while providing four assists for his teammates.

Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
