Manchester United host West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday. The Reds are currently on the outside of the top four looking in, so nothing less than all 3 points will suffice. The Hammers are safely ensconced in mid-table, and should have little to play for at this stage of the season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to rotate his team significantly against the London side, with many changes being enforced.
First choice fullbacks Ashley Young and Luke Shaw are both suspended, which means that Diogo Dalot is sure to start on either flank. The other fullback spot will likely be occupied by a player who hasn’t seen much action in months; both Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo are back in contention. In midfield, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matić remain unavailable through injury, so expect Fred and Scott McTominay to get consecutive starts after their impressive performances last week. In attack, Solskjaer will have to choose from a group of forwards that have started to misfire all at once. Marcus Rashford in particular has looked physically jaded of late, and may be given a break with an eye on the Nou Camp on Tuesday.
