Man Utd v West Ham team news

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely make changes to keep his squad fresh and offer an opportunity to some fringe players to prove their quality and fitness.

He has confirmed that Sunday’s match-winner Lingard will play in a rotated side.

Alex Telles and Phil Jones will also be in the squad, with the latter potentially in line for a first start in 20 months.

Teenage talent Anthony Elanga will also be involved and Solskjaer praised his attitude, enthusiasm and directness following an impressive pre-season.

The opportunity to see some rarely-seen players adds a layer of intrigue to the match, although Marcus Rashford and Amad will definitely miss out.

Our prediction: United v West Ham

This is not an easy game to judge given the lineups could be so different to the ones which faced off on Sunday.

The Hammers caused United problems at the weekend and if Antonio plays, he’ll be a handful.

That said, the United side selected should be full of players looking to prove themselves to Solskjaer and make the most of a rare opportunity.

The safest prediction is probably another one-goal win for United, and perhaps Solskjaer will hope for a more controlled performance and less late drama.

Our prediction: United 1-0 West Ham
