West Ham United vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

An in-form West Ham United host Manchester United on Saturday with both a win away from a Champions League spot.

West Ham United recorded a third consecutive league win last time out as they edged out Aston Villa, with Jared Bowen scoring the winner.

Ollie Watkins endured a frustrating evening, missing a penalty before a late goal was disallowed for offside as Villa suffered a first away defeat of the season.

Manchester United rallied from two goals down to beat Southampton last Sunday, with Edinson Cavani assisting one and scoring twice off the bench.

They will need to avoid defeat in their final Champions League group stage game after they were beaten 3-1 at home by Paris Saint Germain.

Team news
Michail Antonio lasted just 45 minutes against Villa and appeared short of fitness. Sebastian Haller is likely to replace him here.

Said Benrahma impressed off the bench, but West Ham will probably revert back to a 3-4-3 formation.

Marcus Rashford’s ongoing shoulder issue continues to be a problem and he may not be risked.

Luke Shaw is likely to miss out again, meaning Alex Telles will continue in the left-back role.

Expected starting XI’s
West Ham United (3-4-3): Fabianski; Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku; Bowen, Haller, Fornals
Manchester United (4-4-2): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, De Beek, Pogba, Fernandes; Cavani, Martial
