The Hammers welcome the red devils to the London Stadium for the upcoming round of PL fixtures in an early Saturday kick-off. It will be their third match herein the space of a week after playing Chelsea over the weekend and Macclesfield Town in midweek.
The will be raring to go and beaming with confidence after putting in a solid performance that helped them hold Chelsea to a barren draw on Sunday. The result left them in 17th position, two points above the drop zone. They have also won 3-1 against Everton on the road in the last fortnight. Andriy Yarmolenko and Marko Arnautovic, scorers in that game, will be key players in this tie.
United, seventh on the log with ten points, were unable to collect maximum points in front of their home fans on Saturday, settling for a 1-1 draw with Wolves. They will need to be more clinical in front of goal, a quality that appears to have deserted both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.
