West Ham v Manchester United: probable starters in bold, contenders in light

This match could come down to firepower. While Manchester United can rely on Cristiano Ronaldo for goals, West Ham’s forward options are limited following Michail Antonio’s foolhardy red card against Southampton. Nikola Vlasic could have to play as a false 9 because of Antonio’s absence and West Ham could also be low on energy after their victorious trip to Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League on Thursday. That said it could be a good time to face United, who are under pressure after their defeat at Young Boys in the Champions League. Jacob Steinberg
