Manchester United and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

Manchester United will be looking to kick off their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with victory over West Ham United at home this afternoon.

The Red Devils will head into the match at Old Trafford as favourites and will be expected to pick up all three points from the encounter.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been quite busy in the summer transfer window and have made three major signings.

Striker Romelu Lukaku has arrived from Everton, midfielder Nemanja Matic has moved from Chelsea, and defender Victor Lindelof has been recruited from Benfica.

United finished sixth in the Premier League last season, and the Red Devils will be determined to challenge for the league title this campaign.

Meanwhile, West Ham will be aiming to break into the top 10 of the Premier League this season.

Striker Javier Hernandes, goalkeeper Joe Hart (loan) and Pablo Zalabata all have been signed by the London club this summer.
