To be played on Wednesday 30th November 2016 at 20:00. Venue: Old Trafford,
Odds: Man Utd 4/9, Draw 7/2, West Ham 6/1
West Ham United return to Old Trafford for the second time in a week as they face Jose Mourinho’s side in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
The Hammers drew 1-1 with United last time out and they will take great confidence from that encounter, having played their part in a very exciting match.
Goalkeeper Darren Randolph was West Ham’s hero on the day, keeping United’s expensively assembled squad at bay, and he will surely keep his place for this encounter.
In early team news, West Ham are without Andy Carroll, Reece Oxford, Sam Byram and Arthur Masuaku while Diafra Sakho is a minor doubt due to a hamstring injury.
As for Manchester United, they cannot call on the suspended Marouane Fellaini or Paul Pogba while Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling remain injured.
That said, Mourinho is expected to make changes with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Luke Shaw all expected to feature after failing to start against the Hammers on Sunday.
With all that in mind here is how we expect Manchester United and West Ham to line up on Wednesday evening:
- David de Gea
- Daley Blind
- Phil Jones
- Luke Shaw
- Michael Carrick
- Ander Herrera
- Juan Mata
- Henrikh Mkhitaryan
