Manchester United travel to West Ham this weekend, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in dire need of a win after their defeat to PSG midweek.
Solskjaer’s side have endured a stop-start campaign to date. Just as they look as though they could be turning a corner, another negative result occurs which makes you doubt his stewardship.
The loss to PSG at Old Trafford midweek was one of those instances. While PSG are no pushover, it was a game that United couldn’t afford to lose if they wanted to prolong their Champions League ambitions – yet they did.

United’s fortunes haven’t been much better in the Premier League, where inconsistency has proven to be a major problem. If they are to keep pace with the rest of the traditional big six, they need to ensure they pick up all three points this weekend.

WEST HAM: With information provided by Physio Room, the Hammers’ two injury concerns are Andriy Yarmolenko (Coronavirus, 25% chance of featuring) and Michail Antonio (Thigh injury, ruled out).
Manchester United: Physio Room report that Man United will be without Phil Jones (Knee Injury, ruled out) and Luke Shaw (Thigh injury, ruled out), while Marcus Rashford (Shoulder injury, 75% chance of featuring) faces a late fitness test.
