West Ham v Man Utd team news

West Ham: Andriy Yarmolenko is back for the Hammers after recovering from a positive coronavirus test.

And Moyes has a fully-fit squad to choose from, with Michail Antonio likely to start once again up top and have Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals off the striker.

Man Utd: Fred could lose his place in midfield after an ill-disciplined display against PSG eventually saw him sent off, meaning Paul Pogba could return to the starting XI.

Luke Shaw is still a doubt because of a thigh problem and Phil Jones is out. But Marcus Rashford will undergo a late fitness test to see if his shoulder injury has fully healed.

Our prediction: West Ham v Man Utd

United are blowing hot and cold this season and will have to be on their guard against a West Ham side that have suddenly found their groove under Moyes.

The likes of Antonio and Arthur Masuaku can turn games in a flash – and Solskjaer will have to implement a stronger midfield here if United aren’t to get overrun.

With their natural firepower it’s hard to see the Red Devils not scoring in east London. But West Ham will also give it a good go, which sets us up for a fascinating encounter.
