Manchester United face a tough visit to Upton Park this afternoon, with Sam Allardyce’s men looking to continue their good home record against big teams this season.
The match will begin at 18:15.
United head into today’s encounter in fourth place, but could leapfrog Southampton and claim third place in the Premier League with all three points.
However, eighth place West Ham are having a good season by their standards and already claimed victory against the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool at home this season.
United have won 12 of their last 15 matches against West Ham in all competitions and West Ham have failed to get a single win from their last six matches against the Red Devils. But with West Ham undefeated in nine of their last 10 home matches this season, you can be sure that the East London team will be confident of achieving a crucial point at least.
In team news, Sam Allardyce will have problems at the back with James Collins, James Tomkins, Carl Jenkinson and Winston Reid all doubts for the match, while Cheikhou Kouyate and Andy Carrol are also both likely to be sitting this match out. While Louis van Gaal’s lengthy injury list has now been narrowed down to only one player, Michael Carrick.
Here’s how the teams will line up.
West Ham United: Adrian; Jenkinson, Tomkins, Kouyate, Cresswell; Song, Noble, Nolan, Downing; Sakho, Valencia.
Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw; Blind, Rooney, Di Maria, Januzaj; Van Persie, Falcao
