Manchester United have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions – a figure that doesn’t exactly suit them best given how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer initially rallied the Red Devils.

They next take on West Ham United at Old Trafford, going into the final stretch of games in the Premier League that they simply must win.

Let us have a look at how the two teams could lineup tomorrow:


Manchester United

Solskjaer admitted that his side lacks confidence up front, wherein the Arsenal and Wolves game ought to have easily been won by them due to the sheer chances created. They’ve apparently been working on that flaw.

Injuries will cause Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly, and Antonio Valencia to be out of the game, with Marcus Rashford’s and Nemanja Matic’s illnesses also putting them at some doubt.

Alexis Sanchez is back in training, but the Norwegian doesn’t think he’ll be fit enough to play a part. Suspensions will mean that both Luke Shaw and Ashley Young won’t be available for the game.


Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Dalot, Smalling, Lindelof, Rojo
Midfielders: Fred, McTominay, Pogba
Forwards: Lukaku, Lingard, Martial

Formation: 4-3-3

West Ham United

With the Barcelona away tie coming up, Solskjaer may rest a few of his important players. As of such, Manuel Pellegrini’s side seems poised in a perfect spot to try and wreak some more damage to the Old Trafford outfit.

The Hammers will be without Andy Carroll, Yarmolenko, and Carlos Sanchez, while the fitness of Samir Nasri, Winston Reid, and Jack Wilshere will be left to a late test.

Poised in the 11th spot, West Ham will certainly try to finish the season within the top 10, and the away game may just be the first place to start.


Goalkeeper: Fabianski
Defenders: Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Cresswell
Midfielders: Rice, Noble
Forwards: Arnautovic, Lanzini, Anderson; Hernandez

Formation: 4-2-3-1
