Manchester United will look to put the disappointment of their opening Champions League defeat behind them as they visit West Ham .

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’s side were stunned by Young Boys in Bern as their European campaign got off to a poor start.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off in the first half of that encounter but will be available as Manchester United bid to continue their unbeaten league start.

West Ham, also yet to be beaten in the Premier League , will be missing Michail Antonio after the striker was sent off at Southampton.

What was team news

West Ham will be forced to alter their approach after Michail Antonio’s suspension, short as David Moyes is of an alternative striking option. Jarrod Bowen may be shifted inside and Moyes may opt to return to a back-five with which he has previously had success at the club, particularly with a glut of centre-back options.

Conversely, Manchester United will have Aaron Wan-Bissaka available - he is only suspended in Europe. Edinson Cavani is a doubt after not travelling to Switzerland while Marcus Rashford remains out.

Confirmed line-ups

West Ham — Fabianski; Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice (C); Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Vlasic.

Man Utd — De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire (C), Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba; Cristiano Ronaldo.

Odds

West Ham: 10/3

Draw: 3/1

Manchester United: 3/4

Prediction

West Ham will hope to challenge Manchester United but shorn of Michail Antonio, they may be lacking both forward thrust and a useful out-ball. They have the defensive resources to frustrate but stopping a fully-loaded Manchester United side may prove difficult. West Ham 1-2 Manchester United
