Team news
Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are available again having served UEFA Super Cup bans.

Jose Mourinho hasn’t settled on a formation yet and could easily deploy a 4-3-3 or a 3-5-2 here.

Marko Arnautovic is a doubt for his West Ham debut after coming off in a pre-season friendly against Manchester City with a muscle injury.

Hernandez is set to start up front against his former employers.

Manchester United (4-3-3): De Gea; Valencia, Lindelof, Bailly, Darmian; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Martial
