The Premier League title may be out of reach for Manchester United, but a treble remains a real possibility when they take on Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final.

A 1-0 win against Real Betis in United’s last outing saw Erik ten Hag’s side reach the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday night, drawing against Sevilla in the quarter-finals. After his Carabao Cup success, victory against Fulham on Sunday would send United into the FA Cup semi-finals and put Ten Hag in an excellent position to win one or two more trophies this season.

United have faced Fulham once already this season, with Alejandro Garnacho scoring a 93rd-minute winner to secure a 2-1 victory, but the Argentine will not be available this time. Anthony Martial and Antony could make the squad on Sunday, while Casemiro is suspended after receiving a red card against Southampton in United’s last Premier League game.
