Manchester United have the edge over West Ham in the league so far, ahead of their visit to the London Stadium.
The Hammers do come into this game on a three match unbeaten run however, finishing with an 8-0 victory midweek, albeit it against League Two outfit.
The Hammers managed to finish 0-0 with Chelsea following their first victory of the season, a 3-1 victory over Everton, while United’s dressing room is rather less positive.
Paul Pogba’s place in the team is under serious doubt after his criticism of his side’s tactics.
The French World Cup winner’s comments come after United’s disappointing 1-1 with Wolves, despite a man of the match performance in the Europa League.
Pogba scored twice in the Red Devils’ 3-0 victory over BSC Youngboys a week and a half ago, but was left out the side completely this midweek in United’s cup exit to Derby County.

Sports include football, boxing and cricket. As a 5-year-old supporting Doncaster Rovers, my Saturdays consisted of leaning up against a cold brick wall away at teams like Forest Green Rovers. I never expected then to be sat three tiers high at Wembley watching James Hayter score the only goal in the League One play-off final against Leeds to put pub team Donny into the second tier of English football. Journalism is just my plan to get to the good seats.
