Predicted Manchester United and West Ham line-ups: Huge match for both teams

Here is how we predict Manchester United and West Ham United will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 5th December 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 4/9, Draw 16/5, West Ham 13/2

Manchester United welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford on Saturday knowing a win could take them to the top of the Premier League table.

Louis van Gaal’s side missed the chance to do just that last weekend when they drew 1-1 with Leicester City, but this season’s title race looks like being the closest ever and any one of the top six will know they have a good chance of success if they get a little luck along the way.

In early team news United are without Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera, while Jesse Lingard, Wayne Rooney and Marcos Rojo are all minor doubts but should recover in time for the vital clash.

As for West Ham, they are without Dimitri Payet, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia, leaving manager Slaven Bilic short of goal-scoring options.

That said West Ham have an outstanding away record this season and they will be hoping to add United to a list that already contains Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool among others.
