How Man United Could Line up Vs West Ham as Red Devils Eye Return to Winning Ways

  • Man United will look to put their midweek Champions League disappointment behind them when they visit in-form West Ham in the Premier League
  • United were stunned 2-1 by Young Boys in Switzerland in the European competition, and now face the Hammers for the first of their two meetings in a space of four days
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to ring a number of changes from the side that lost to Young Boys, with only a handful of players keeping their places

With the exception of Edinson Cavani, Solskjaer has no major injury concerns, having been also boosted with the return of Alex Telles and Scott McTominay.

Given the significance of the West Ham clash, the Norwegian boss will be keen to name a strong team to take on the Hammers.

Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire are expected to keep their places in the heart of defence, with Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka manning either side of the flank.

Solskjaer will have a lot to ponder on in the middle of the park but could be tempted to start Fred to match up the energy of Declan Rice and Soucek.

Bruno Fernandes is almost certain to take his place in the hole having connected quite well with Cristiano Ronaldo who is expected to lead the goal hunt.

Having missed United's midweek trip to Young Boys, Mason Greenwood is expected to join Ronaldo upfront, with Paul Pogba playing in the left-wing.
