West Ham vs Manchester United Preview

West Ham play host to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue their good home form and make it four wins on the bounce.

The Hammers beat Aston Villa in a tight affair on Monday night, while Manchester United performed reasonably well but were ultimately beaten by French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night in the Champions League at Old Trafford.

The Reds have been much better away from home so far this season but this will be a very tough fixture at a ground where they are winless in their last three visits.

Team News

Manager David Moyes welcomed back striker Michail Antonio for the clash against Aston Villa on Monday night. He looked way off the pace though before being replaced at half-time and could start on the bench in this one.

Winger Andriy Yarmolenko is still ruled out following a positive Covid-19 test, while summer signing Said Benrahma is still yet to break into the starting lineup although he set up the winner in his last appearance.

For Manchester United, rotation is expected with their current packed schedule. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer welcomed back Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial for the midweek visit of PSG but Luke Shaw is still ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Marcus Rashford is touch-and-go for the game after a flare up of his shoulder injury, but it’s likely he isn’t risked.

Recent Form

The Hammers have won their last three games on the bounce after an insanely tough run of fixtures to start the season.

They fought back from 3-0 down to draw with Tottenham before holding Manchester City to a 1-1 draw too, and were unlucky to be beaten by Liverpool prior to this run.

Manchester United had won four in a row prior to the midweek defeat and have currently won eight away games in a row in the Premier League, which is a club record.

Bruno Fernandes has scored in the last five of those away wins and a goal in this game would see him break a club record during the Premier League era.
