Manchester United will return to action in the Premier League on Sunday when they welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag’s side claimed a convincing 3-0 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol in their previous home game in the Europa League.
Cristiano Ronaldo was back in the team after being axed from the squad for the Chelsea trip due to his behaviour in the recent Spurs game.
The Portuguese repaid the faith of his manager as he earned his name on the scoresheet following strikes from Diogo Dalot and Marcus Rashford.
West Ham, on the other hand, hosted Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League in midweek at the London Stadium, where they secured a narrow 1-0 win.
The Hammers are one of the top favourites to win the European competition this season. They have won all their five matches so far to be at the top of their group.
Erik ten Hag’s side have been impressive in recent weeks. They completely dominated Tottenham Hotspur in the home encounter, emerging victorious by 2-0 courtesy of goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes. The Red Devils then faced Chelsea in a tricky away fixture last weekend but managed to come away with a point after Casemiro’s late strike canceled out Jorginho’s penalty goal.
West Ham United
David Moyes’ side endured a disastrous start to the 2022-23 season, losing their opening three matches. However, the Hammers have recently seen signs of improvement as they have now climbed up to 10th in the league standings.
The East London outfit faced Bournemouth in their latest league encounter and managed to seal full points by beating their rivals 2-0.
Manchester United will be missing a few players this week, with Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka both yet to fully recover from their fitness issues. Raphael Varane picked up a knock at Stamford Bridge and the Frenchman is unlikely to be back before the World Cup.
Meanwhile, West Ham could be without Lucas Paqueta after he suffered an injury in the 1-1 draw at Southampton. Craig Dawson is nearing a recovery and he could be named in the squad on Sunday.
