Manchester United need to get past Fulham in the FA Cup quarters to keep hopes alive of yet another piece of silverware this season.

Man United beat West Ham 3-1 to book a quarters spot, while Fulham were 2-0 winners against Leeds United in the previous round.

Man United have posted a trio of 3-1 home wins over Everton, Reading and West Ham to make the quarters of the 2023 FA Cup.

The hosts are 13-time winners of the FA Cup but have not made it to the semis of the competition since 2020.

Fulham have won in just one of their last 25 away matches against United in all competitions and this will be an uphill task for the visitors.

Fulham have matched their best ever run in the competition since 2010 where they were knocked out by Tottenham in the quarters of the competition.

Man United extended their unbeaten run against Fulham to 15 games thanks to a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture in the English Premier League.

It’s been 7 years since Man United’s last FA Cup triumph, when they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 after extra time and Erik Ten Hag is desperate to change this.
