- West Ham head into this match just three days following their opening Europa League Group Stage match away to Dinamo Zagreb and it is yet to be seen as to what sort of physical affect this will have upon their squad.
- After a magnificent start to the new Premier League that has seen him register four goals and four assists, forward Michail Antonio was sent off for two bookable offences against Southampton last weekend and is therefore suspended for this match.
- Last weekend was a celebration for Man Utd, with Cristiano Ronaldo marking his return to the club with a brace in their 4-1 win over Newcastle, although that joy was to be short-lived following their loss in the Champions League three days later.
- Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani remain unavailable for the Red Devils whilst Scott McTominay and Phil Jones are both big doubts for this match.

After falling to a dramatic 2-1 defeat at the hands of Young Boys in their opening Champions League Group Stage encounter, a defeat totally of their own making, Man Utd will look to bounce back immediately in the Premier League by beating a West Ham side, who like them have begun the new domestic season unbeaten after four games. However, the absence of the Hammers’ focal point in Antonio is a huge loss for David Moyes’ side and the likelihood is that they will fending off wave upon wave of Man Utd attacks with none of the West Ham players possessing the same strength and ability to hold the ball up like Antonio does. This should lead to the visitors ultimately overwhelming West Ham and subjecting Moyes’ men to their first league loss of the season, with Ronaldo no doubt set to prove an influential figure once again.
Tip: MAN UTD TO WIN
