CONFIRMED: Manchester United U21 line-up v West Ham United U21

19 Old Trafford

The Manchester United Under-21 side will take on their West Ham United counterparts away from home this evening.

Manchester United will be looking to pick up a win against West Ham United in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League this evening.

The match will be played out at the Hammers’ Rush Green training ground and promises to be an exciting affair.

United midfielder Michael Carrick will feature in the contest in order to continue his recovery from an ankle operation.

This means that the 33-year-old England international will sit out United’s Premier League clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.

However, the former West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur star is likely to benefit from today’s match in the long run.

Here is how the United Under-21s will line up against their West Ham counterparts:

Manchester United Under-21 XI: Lindegaard, Vermijl, Thorpe, Blackett, James, Carrick, Janko, Pereira, Wilson, Keane, Weir

Subs: Grimshaw, O'Hara, Love, Goss, Fletcher
