James And Pereira To Start | 4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup Vs West Ham United

Manchester United will face off against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon at the back of two consecutive 1-0 home victories against Leicester City and Astana respectively. The Red Devils are in a good run of form, but the Hammers could prove to be a tough test for them as they have recruited well over the summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a whole host of changes to his side for this encounter against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United

Defence

David De Gea will start in between the sticks for the Mancunian outfit after being rested in the 1-0 win over Astana in midweek. The dynamic duo of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof will return to Solskjaer’s starting XI and resume their defensive responsibilities at the heart of the Red Devils backline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will look to put in another tireless shift from the right-back position while Ashley Young fills in on the other side as the left-back. Wan-Bissaka and Young will need to be effective at both ends of the pitch if Man United are to secure a positive result on Sunday.

Midfield

Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic will operate as the anchormen in midfield as they try to breakdown most of the West Ham attacks. Matic’s form has been poor of late, so it’s high time for him to step up his game and help his team establish their dominance at the centre of the park.

The talented trio of Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata and Daniel James will be focussed on creating chances in the Hammers half so that they can provide enough ammunition for Marcus Rashford to score. James has arguably been Solskjaer’s best player of this season so we can expect him to cause a lot of headaches for the West Ham players at the English capital.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are unlikely to feature in this game as they are still recovering from injury.

Attack

Rashford will lead the line for the Mancunian giants despite his wretched run of form in front of the opposition goal this season. However, Solskjaer could use Mason Greenwood off the bench if Rashford fails to be a potent threat in the first half. The 17-year-old striker scored the only goal of the game versus Astana on Thursday night. Hence, he will be desperate for more game time on the field for his boyhood club.
