West Ham welcome Manchester United to the London Stadium hoping to capitalize on 6 days of rest.
The Hammers, fresh from inactivity since Monday, will be looking to provide a stern test to United who are yet to provide consistency in the season. West Ham beat the visitors in this fixture last season in a sensational 3-1 victory. They got a point with 10 men against Aston Villa in a goalless draw.
Sebastian Haller continues to impress coach Manuel Pellegrini following his arrival from Germany and will expect to cause more trouble to a shaky United defence.
The Red Devils struggled to an unconvincing 1-0 win against Astana of Kazakhstan in the Europa League on Thursday. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side were not impressive going forward with striker Marcus Rashford wasteful in front of goal failing to bury a myriad of chances.
They are currently on a run of 8 away games without a win in all competitions.
Daniel James who has been in fine form since joining United missed out in the midweek fixture and will be assessed ahead of the game. Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are unlikely to feature as they continue their recovery from injury.
Head to Head:
Man Utd have won 4 of the past 6 meetings between the two sides drawing one and losing the other.
West Ham win
