Diallo was pictured warming up at Old Trafford ahead of the game.

United’s starting line-up featured six changes to the team which drew against Everton.

United are entitled to use five substitutes in the fixture, giving Diallo a decent chance of game time.

It is a big opportunity for Donny van de Beek in midfield, with Paul Pogba out injured.

 

Diallo has three goals and three assists from two under-23 games.

West Ham have not named Michail Antonio in the team, while Jesse Lingard is ineligible to feature. Andriy Yarmolenko is up front.

The FA Cup fifth round match kicks off at 7.30pm and could go to extra-time and penalties to find a winner.

United beat Watford and Liverpool in previous rounds, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs this evening.
