Manchester United will lock horns with West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday night looking to pick up another victory on the road. The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 3-1 loss at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain in midweek which will dampen their spirits ahead of this weekend’s clash at the English capital.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably choose to set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make one tweak to his first-team for this upcoming encounter versus David Moyes’ men. Nemanja Matic will come into the side to anchor the midfield alongside Fred which could mean that Scott McTominay will drop to the bench.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
David de Gea should retain his spot in between the sticks for the Red Devils after shipping in three goals against PSG in midweek. Victor Lindelof will continue to feature alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of the Man United backline. Their main focus would be to stop West Ham’s Michail Antonio from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a guaranteed starter at right-back while Alex Telles looks to put on an impressive performance on the other side as the left-back. Solskjaer will ask both of them to keep a good shape at the back and not let the Hammers wide men outrun them out on the flanks.
Fred let his team down by getting sent off in midweek. So he will be desperate to make amends by producing a solid performance along with Nemanja Matic at the centre of the park. The dangerous trio of Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will operate just ahead of them as part of the Red Devils attack.
Rashford was fortunate to get his name on the scoresheet on Wednesday night but was responsible for squandering some decent chances to score. Therefore, the English striker would have to raise his performance levels if he wants to help his team secure maximum points at the London Stadium this weekend.
Paul Pogba and Juan Mata will start on the bench but could come on to influence the game in the second half if required.
Edinson Cavani produced a match-winning display off the bench versus Southampton last weekend and was desperately unlucky not to register a goal against PSG in midweek. The Uruguayan striker is playing well and should continue to lead the charge for Man United up top.
Mason Greenwood will make up the numbers on the bench as he waits for his chance to impress as a second-half substitute if Solskjaer decides to call upon his services.
