Manchester United visit West Ham this weekend looking to get back to winning ways after a midweek defeat.

In the Premier League, Manchester United remain unbeaten, with three wins and one draw from four games.

United are also unbeaten away from home in the league since January 2020.

Last time at the London Stadium, United won 3-1. That was preceded by two consecutive defeats, one under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and one Jose Mourinho.

United have had a couple of days extra rest after West Ham played in Croatia on Thursday night so there should be no excuses for a poor performance.

West Ham will be without top scorer Michail Antonio due to suspension. Andriy Yarmolenko could start up front for David Moyes’ side.

How will United line up?

While United have a couple of fresh faces available like Alex Telles and Scott McTominay, both are more likely to start in the Carabao Cup next week.

Expect the same back four who started last weekend against Newcastle, with David de Gea in goal again.

There could be a decision at right-back with Diogo Dalot or Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but we would expect Wan-Bissaka to keep his place and Dalot to play in the cup.


Will Donny van de Beek get the start again? Probably not. West Ham’s midfielder Tomas Soucek will be a threat from set pieces and Nemanja Matic is likely to come in to combat him.

Paul Pogba will play wide left but also drop deep when needed and contribute defensively.

That will leave Fred to partner Matic in midfield. While as stated, we would expect McTominay to feature in the cup match, he could be an outside to partner Matic here if he is fit enough.

In attack Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the line as he looks to build on his encouraging three goals in two games.

Mason Greenwood will be recalled on the right, with Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho on the bench.

From midweek there will be three changes to the starting line-up, with Victor Lindelof, Jadon Sancho and Donny van de Beek dropping out.

Raphael Varane, Nemanja Matic and Mason Greenwood would be their replacements.
