United travel to West Ham today with hopes of bouncing back from hapless PSG defeat on Wednesday as they aim to make it five away wins out of five this season
With Solskjaer already handed double injury boost earlier today, United will likely field a familiar squad for high-flying West Ham clash after a resurgent second-half performance last Sunday.
We shall take a look at the most likely lineup for the Devils today at London Stadium, with left-back Luke Shaw being the only major absentee for United.
David De Gea
Devils number one, David De Gea will again be in goal after struggling to finish PSG loss on Wednesday and was initially in doubt for West Ham trip.
The Spaniard was under pressure at the start of the season with the return of Dean Henderson from Sheffield United, but has managed to keep his number one spot thus far following a number of impressive outings from the 30-year-old.
The former Porto man will continue at left-back with Luke Shaw still nursing a hamstring injury and is expected to be out for a couple of weeks more.
Telles has managed to find his feet quick at Old Trafford since his arrival and is readily tipped to succeed with United given Luke Shaw’s unfortunate history with injury.
The 28-year-old was forced off late on at St Mary’s last Sunday and was doubtful for PSG clash but managed to recover quickly for the eventual loss.
Devils captain Harry Maguire is expected to lead the lads once again today on the pitch with hopes of maintaining their perfect away start to the start.
The Swedish defender is expected to partner Captain Maguire at center-back today as he continues to be favored ahead of Eric Bailey in the pecking order.
The 23-year-old is geared up for West Ham clash today and would maintain his right-back position for United.
Fred is tipped to hold the United midfield today despite a nasty headbutt incident by the Brazilian against PSG and eventual sending-off after a second yellow.
McTominay returned to United Lineup on Wednesday for PSG clash after weeks on the sidelines, and was pretty impressive for the red outfit.
The Scottish international is expected to partner Fred in holding midfield midfield for United today.
The sensational Portuguese is greatly tipped to shine in today’s encounter having proved his worth as United’s most crucial player on the pitch since his last winter arrival at Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old will further his traditional attacking midfield role for the Devils against the Hammers with hopes of becoming the first United player ever to score in five consecutive away games for United, after equaling the previous record last week.
The Frenchman will likely be deployed to the flanks again today, after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted to difficulty in keeping in-form striker Edinson Cavani on the bench.
The 24-year-old travelled with United squad to Southampton last week but took ill overnight and was unavailable in the epic comeback last Sunday, and will be hoping for an impressive outing at the London stadium today.
Rashford was a initially a major doubt for Hammers clash but following Solskjaer’s lastest comments on the forward’s shoulder injury, there’s great likelihood of a start for the 23-year-old today.
In-form United striker, Edinson Cavani is set for another stunning performance today in East London following series of superb outings for the Uruguayan since his free summer arrival at the Theatre Of Dreams.
The Uruguayan alongside Bruno Fernandes were comeback heroes last Sunday at St Mary’s for United after falling two goals behind in the first half.
The 33-year-old is expected to spearhead the United attack alongside Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford today in London.
