MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 FULHAM | YOUNG

14: Breakthrough! Jose Mourinho wanted his side to start fast - and they have delivered!

It’s a splendid goal from makeshift wing-back Ashley Young, who cuts inside from the left and unleashes an unstoppable strike into the corner.

Marcus Rashford with the assist for those desperate to check your fantasy football squads!

13: Fulham win their first corner of the afternoon and the decibel level from the visiting fans rises. Sessegnon looks for Mitrovic at the far post but he can’t connect and the ball trickles out the other side of the pitch for a throw-in.

10: Two dangerous balls whipped in by Dalot, the first was headed clear by Odoi and the second forced a catch from Rico. Looks a tidy player from what I’ve seen.

8: Marcus Rashford is looking bright in these early stages. He twists and turns inside the penalty area but Tim Ream ushered him out of play.

5: A low murmur of groans as Romelu Lukaku is flagged offside. Not the most buoyant atmosphere inside Old Trafford as the rain pours down.

3: The Red Devils are on the front-foot in the early stages. Lots of pace in that United attack this afternoon - Jose Mourinho will hope Romelu Lukaku can help to link things up in attack.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 FULHAM

1: OK, are y’all ready for another rollercoaster ride at Old Trafford? I can’t tell whether or not I’m being sarcastic. Anyway, we’re underway!

Don’t worry - I’ll keep you updated with all the Premier league goals from around the grounds.

Mendes backing…

15:53: Why? I have no idea what's happening these days.

Jose Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes insists his client is "fully committed" to Manchester United and has no intention of leaving Old Trafford any time soon.

Mourinho is the bookmakers' favourite to be the next top-flight manager to leave their post and woke up to a report on Friday that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been targeted to replace him next summer.

That story may be behind agent Mendes' surprise - and rare - statement clarifying his client's status.

"There have been more rumours of Jose Mourinho leaving Manchester United," Mendes said. ”It's totally untrue.

"Jose is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him. He has a long-term contract with Manchester United and is fully committed to the club in building a solid winning project."

Twitter round-up

Andy: Another reminder that Jose Mourinho has spent more than any other manager in the history of football and that Manchester United have the highest wage bill in the Premier League.

Dan: Jose Mourinho has benched every under-performing player this season except Nemanja Matic. What’s wrong with him?!

Joe: Fred, Jose Mourinho’s most recent big money signing, is on the bench once again for Manchester United. He’s really making the case for Ed Woodward to trust him with a few more hundred million in January, isn’t he?

Hector: Jose Mourinho is such a child. He has clearly had another argument with Pogba, but isn’t even trying to hide it. Despite Pogba’s flaws, he is the only United midfielder with any creativity. How Matic’s selection is justified week in week out is beyond me.

Jose vs Fulham

14:50: The Jose Mourinho roadshow has rumbled on this week, with Manchester United's beleaguered boss mixing praise for his side's spirit with a candid admission that they can't simply expect to see off Fulham at home.

For Mourinho, however, despite undeniably positive elements in his side's midweek draw against Arsenal, anything but an impressive three points against the struggling Londoners would surely send his position further towards untenable territory.

Ouch!

14:48: Fulham have lost 21 of their last 23 away matches against Manchester United in all comps (W1 D1) – their only win in this run was a 3-1 victory in the Premier League in October 2003.

Team news

14:45: Paul Pogba starts on the bench as Jose Mourinho recalls Romelu Lukaku to the starting line-up for Manchester United's match with Bournemouth.

The United boss made four changes from Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Arsenal, with Lukaku joined in the starting line-up by Phil Jones, Juan Mata and Ashley Young.

Ryan Sessegnon made his 100th appearance for a Fulham side to which Claudio Ranieri made five alterations.

Starting XI...

14:40: Sorry I'm late to the party but I've just about finished wiritng how good Mohamed Salah was against Bournemouth today. Killed my fantasy football team in the process...

MANCHESTER UNITED vs FULHAM

Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are among the players that could be absent for Manchester United against Fulham. The trio will be assessed on Friday, as will centre-back Eric Bailly. Luke Shaw is hoping to return after missing that match with a knock and Ashley Young is back from suspension. Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku will be hoping to return to the starting line-up after being dropped to the bench against the Gunners, but Victor Lindelof (groin) and Alexis Sanchez (hamstring) are out.

Fulham expect to have Kevin McDonald and Floyd Ayite available. McDonald and Ayite have made good progress in their attempts to recover from respective hamstring and groin injuries. Manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to make few changes to the team that showed signs of improvement in Wednesday's 1-1 draw at home to Leicester.
