Following Leicester’s 5-0 thrashing of Sheffield United earlier today, Manchester United need to beat West Ham this evening to reclaim 2nd place in the table.
David Moyes couldn’t have picked a better time to play his former club, with the injury doubts beginning to mount up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and West Ham enjoying a period of good form. What will go in United’s favour is that Jesse Lingard, who has been brilliant for West Ham this year, will be unavailable because of the conditions with the loan agreement.
United knocked West Ham out of the FA Cup last month but needed an injury time goal from Scott McTominay to get the job done, so this could likely be a tough game for Solskjaer’s men tonight.
