Manchester United v West Ham league preview

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make two changes to his line-up against West Ham when they visit Old Trafford for Saturday’s league match. The game will start at 12:30 pm (17:30 BST) time. Ashley Young received a red card against Wolves last week and Luke Shaw also received his 10th booking of the season in that match also. That means that he’ll serve a two-match ban that is going to also rule him out of the trip to Everton on April 21.

Shaw also received a one-match ban after he was booked in Wednesday’s Champions League quarterfinal match with Barcelona. He will not feature in the return leg on Tuesday at the Camp Nou. So that means Diogo Dalot may start at right back and Marcus Rojo most likely at left-back. Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia are still both unavailable due to injury.

Eric Bailly is still not fit after he suffered a head injury while he was on international duty a few weeks ago. Ole could choose a pairing of either Chris Smalling, Phil Jones or Victor Lindelof. Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera both missed Wednesday’s game against Barcelona and we’ll have to see if they will be on the team sheet come Saturday. Ole said that Alexis Sanchez should be available for the game against the Hammers.

Ole in his post-press conference gave an update on the Chilean striker. “He has done lots of injury work and is now injury free,” said Ole. “Now he’ll step up and train with the team. He will probably be in the squad for West Ham on Saturday and let’s see how much, and if he plays.”

Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial and may be able to start in the line-up this weekend. Marcus Rashford played for most of the game against Barcelona and should start.

As for West Ham, Felipe Andersen returned from injury at Stamford Bridge and Michail Antonio missed the game after suffering from a groin tear. But he may be fit for the game against United. Samir Nasri picked up an injury at Chelsea and now may not feature for West Ham this Saturday. Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez will most likely miss this game because they have long-term injuries.
