Despite cruising past Brentford during the week, it hasn't all been plain sailing for Ralf Rangnick at Manchester United. The inconsistencies of his side were underlined as they gave up a 0-2 lead to a Philippe Coutinho-inspired Aston Villa last weekend. They have also dropped points to Wolves (lost 1-0) and Newcastle (1-1 draw) in recent weeks. It’s all led to the likes of Marcus Rashford having their future at Old Trafford questioned. However, the England forward scored to seal Wednesday night’s victory, in what could prove a vital step in reigniting his season. Cristiano Ronaldo has also returned to the fold.

David Moyes’ men might have succumbed to a somewhat underpowered Leeds United team last time out in the Premier League, but they are having a very impressive season overall and are likely to pose a significant threat in the Manchester United vs West Ham live stream. Amongst other things, midfielder Jarod Bowen is in exceptional form, with three goals in the Hammers' last two games. Teammate Michail Antonio continues to cause problems for opponents in and around their penalty area, too.

Man Utd Club captain Harry Maguire has been on the bench for the last couple of matches as he recovers from a rib injury, but he starts today. West Ham have also been juggling players struggling with injuries and Covid. This includes central defender Kurt Zouma, who has only recently resumed training following a hamstring injury and being struck by the virus, but again he's fit to start.

The London side do not have a great record at Old Trafford: although West Ham did beat Manchester United during their visit in the League Cup in September last year, and got a draw as recently as July 2020, they have not won there in the league since May 2007.

Here's how they line up:

Man Utd: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Alex Telles, Fred, McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Greenwood, Ronaldo, Elanga.

West Ham: Areola, Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals, Antonio.

This is likely to be a highly competitive match whose outcome could have a huge bearing on the final table for this season. Find out who comes out on top by watching the Manchester United vs West Ham live stream, which we will show you how to do below.
