Manchester United will clash heads with West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Silkeborg in the UEFA Europa League, whereas the Red Devils recorded a 3-0 win against Sheriff.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Marcus Rashford looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven this weekend.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs West Ham United
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.
Victor Lindelof is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Bruno Fernandes will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Denmark international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Sunday.
Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Antony and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, causing menace for David Moyes’ men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Marcus Rashford is expected to lead the line for Manchester United this weekend. The England international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the West Ham defence that has conceded three goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
Cristiano Ronaldo could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
