Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United host West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend and the Red Devils will be looking to build on their impressive 4-0 win over Feyenoord during the midweek.
Mourinho will be pleased with his team’s performance in the Europa League game this week, but the Portuguese tactician needs his side to replicate that form in the Premier League now. The Old Trafford outfit are already far behind the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, as far as the title race is concerned.
Manchester United have won just one of their last six Premier League games and are under serious pressure to turn it around. A win over West Ham would give them some much-needed confidence and a platform to build on.
Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling are the only injury worries for Mourinho.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Blind, Rojo, Shaw; Pogba, Herrera; Martial, Rooney, Mata; Ibrahimovic
West Ham United Team News & Preview
West Ham have had a season to forget so far and are going through a crisis.
After a reasonably good campaign last year, West Ham were expected to build on that this season. However, they have failed miserably and are very much there for the taking this weekend.
Only Hull City have conceded more goals than the Hammers in the Premier League this season, and Slaven Bilić‘s side are in need of drastic improvements at the back. Their situation has only worsened now that their best defender is suspended.
Winston Reid will miss the game through suspension. Arthur Masuaku, Gökhan Töre, Sam Byram, Andy Carroll, and Reece Oxford are all injured.
Predicted West Ham United Starting Lineup (3-4-2-1): Adrian; Collins, Kouyate, Ogbonna; Antonio, Noble, Obiang, Cresswell; Payet, Lanzini; Ayew
