Manchester United make their first visit to the London Stadium this evening (5.15pm kick-off) to take on a West Ham side who have improved in recent weeks.
Slaven Bilic’s side beat Burnley, Hull, and Swansea over the Christmas period, although suffered a 1-0 defeat away at champions Leicester on New Year’s Eve – their first loss since the start of December.
Nonetheless, their fine run of three successive victories means that the Hammers are up to 12th in the table, and sit eight points clear of the bottom three at the start of 2017.
However, they will have their work cut out attempting to win a third consecutive league game at the London Stadium this evening, as Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United have won their last five league matches, including their last two on the road.
A late 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough at Old Trafford on New Year’s Eve means that the Red Devils are just three points behind neighbours Manchester City in fifth, and a win in East London this evening could take them to the cusp of the top four places.
Having played just 48 hours ago, both managers will likely make changes this evening, so here are THREE Man United players who deserve a chance against West Ham today…
