Team News:
West Ham
West Ham also have close to a fully-fit squad to choose from, with Andriy Yarmolenko and Michail Antonio the only doubts.

Antonio returned against Aston Villa but did not look fully fit and only lasted the first half, so he will miss out again with Sebastien Haller likely to come back into the starting XI.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku; Bowen, Haller, Fornals

Manchester United
Manchester United are hopeful that Marcus Rashford will be fit for this match despite the striker being forced off against PSG with a recurrence of his shoulder injury.

The number 10, who scored the Red Devils' goal in that match, switched to the right flank to accommodate Edinson Cavani in midweek, so if he misses out then it could be a straight swap for Mason Greenwood.

Cavani is still waiting to hear the result of an FA investigation into a social media post which could be deemed racist, but if eligible for this match he could lead the line once again having inspired the comeback against Southampton last weekend.

Indeed, the Uruguayan is averaging a goal or assist every 32 minutes in the Premier League this season, netting three times and creating one more in his 128 minutes on the field.

The main man remains Bruno Fernandes, though, with the Portuguese playmaker having now scored in each of his last five league away games. Another goal on Saturday would see him become the first Man United player to score in six on the bounce since Denis Law in March 1964.

The impact of Fernandes on the team has been enormous, with Man United earning more Premier League points per game than any other team since his arrival and picking up 17 more points overall in those 23 matches than they did in their previous 23 before that.

Saturday's match is likely to come just too soon for Luke Shaw, but United otherwise have a fairly clean bill of health with David de Gea, Alex Telles, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly all overcoming doubts to feature in the matchday squad in midweek.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Martial; Cavani
Manchester United Premier League form: WDLWWW
Manchester United form (all competitions): LWWWWL

Prediction: West Ham United 2-1 Manchester United
