Confirmed: West Ham v Man Utd lineups

West Ham Upton Park

Here is how West Ham United and Manchester United will line up for today’s game:

West Ham United welcome Manchester United to Upton Park this afternoon in a match that could have huge ramifications for both clubs’ campaigns.

West Ham will want to get back to winning ways after losing to Liverpool last time out, and a victory against Louis van Gaal’s side will give them huge confidence heading into the business-end of the season.

As for United, they will have seen Manchester City drop two more points on Saturday and know they could still catch Manuel Pellegrini’s side – even if league leaders Chelsea appear to be running away with the title.

United are unbeaten in their last 12 league matches against West Ham, but the Hammers are flying high and have their best squad in many years, meaning Sam Allardyce’s side will be quietly confident of taking something of their visitors later today.

A win would put West Ham back level on points with Liverpool but a defeat would be their 300th in the Premier League era.
