Manchester United will be travelling to London Stadium to encounter West Ham United in a crucial Premier League game on Sunday afternoon.
Following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League in midweek, the pressure will be high on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils delivered a lacklustre performance against the Swiss champion and the fans will be hoping to experience a much-improved performance against the Hammers.
In terms of the predicted lineup, David De Gea will continue between the sticks as Dean Henderson hasn’t returned to full fitness after contacting Covid-19 during the summer. In front of the Spaniard, Raphael Varane will start alongside Harry Maguire. Aaron Wan-Bissaka will keep his place on the right and Luke Shaw will be on the left.
In midfield, Nemanja Matic should continue in the midfield pivot alongside Paul Pogba after having a successful run against Newcastle United last weekend. Bruno Fernandes will be in the attacking midfield position.
Cristiano Ronaldo will commence the game as the centre forward for Solskjaer’s side as Edinson Cavani is still struggling with a niggling injury that he suffered in a closed-door friendly fixture against Stoke City. Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho will have the responsibility to stretch the Hammers’ defence from the flanks.
Manchester United Predicted Line-up Against West Ham United(4-2-3-1):
David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes; Mason Greenwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho
West Ham Predicted Line-up:
After a great victory in the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb, West Ham will be full of confidence ahead of a crucial fixture against Manchester United.
Former Red Devils boss David Moyes will also go with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation in this encounter. However, the star man Michail Antonio will remain suspended for this game, having picked up a red card in the previous game against Watford. Apart from that, the Scottish boss will get a full fit squad to choose from.
Fabianski; Cresswell, Dawson, Ogbonna; Coufal, Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Benrahma, Vlasic; Bowen
