West Ham vs Man Utd LIVE: Line ups confirmed, Daniel James decision, Premier League latest | Football | Sport


WEST HAM vs MANCHESTER UNITED – PREMIER LEAGUE LIVE!

  • West Ham have won two of their last four home league games against Manchester United
  • Manchester United have scored more Premier League goals against West Ham than any other side (94)
  • Sebastien Haller has scored three of the Hammers’ six Premier League goals this term
  • United have not kept an away league clean sheet since a 3-0 win at relegated Fulham in early February

West Ham XI: Fabianski, Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Fredericks, Rice, Fornals, Noble, Yarmolenko, Anderson, Haller

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young, Matic, Pereira, McTominay, Mata, Rashford

Twitter round-up

13:35: Peter: Marcos Rojo should have started instead of Ashley Young. Fred should have played in place of Andreas Pereira. We have no attacking options. We all saw what Marcus Rashford did during the week. Wasted like a hundred chances!

Now, Peter might be exaggerating a bit but he’s got a point.

A colleague of mine, Ben Pringle, did some statistical analysis and found that Rashford’s underlying statistics are less-than-favourable compared to his Premier League rivals.

His shot accuracy is currently sat at just 42.86 per cent according to Wyscout data, which is way down on the likes of Temmu Pukki who has hit the target with 75 per cent of his efforts.

According to Wyscout’s unique algorithm, Rashford currently holds an index value of 3.36 ‘Expected goals’ from his 14 shots so far in 2019/20.

This means he is one of just three top forwards who have scored less goals than expected in the current campaign, partially due to some wayward free-kicks and a host of blocked efforts from inside the box.

Search term

13:30: I was having a look at some of the key search terms surrounding Manchester United today. Y’know, to see what everyone is looking for.

And at the top was… ‘Man Utd 9 – 0 Ipswich’

Now what could have prompted such a search? Could it have been Ipswich’s dogged 1-0 victory over Gillingham yesterday? Or, more likely, Manchester City’s absolute tonking of Watford.

The champions were at their ruthless best at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as they hammered the hapless Hornets by the joint second-biggest scoreline in Premier League history – one short of equalling Manchester United‘s record.

Show some ambition!

13:25: That’s the rallying cry from West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, who wants his side to show their ambition to compete with the top six.

In last season’s meeting at the London Stadium, West Ham ran out 3-1 winners but Pellegrini expects a tough fixture this time.

“We know that we have a very strong team in front of us, now we have a good test against United and we will try to beat them,” Pellegrini said.

“It’s the only way to try to arrive in the first six positions of the table, demonstrating every game that you are able to do it.”

Twitter round-up

Usually I would bring you reaction to the line ups – but people seem more interested in Sky Sports having Jose Mourinho, Roy Keane and Graeme Souness on the panel this afternoon.

Max: Mourinho, Souness and Keane in the same room. Whoever came up with that idea needs a promotion!

Michael: Roy Keane, Graeme Souness and Jose Mourinho are Sky’s pundits today. Genuine shame they’re not showing an Arsenal match.

Dan: Souness, Mourinho & Keane in the studio. No pressure Man Utd.

Team news – Manchester United

13:15: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes nine changes from that dreadful Europa League match against Astana. I can’t put into words how bad that was for the neutral.

Anyway, Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford are the only survivors. No sign of Mason Greenwood, who is presumably injured.

Daniel James starts after recovering from a back problem.

Team news – West Ham

13:10: Manuel Pellegrini makes two changes to the West Ham side that drew 0-0 at Aston Villa.

Aaron Cresswell replaces the suspended Arthur Masuaku, while summer arrival Pablo Fornals comes in for the injured Manuel Lanzini.

Bigger news

13:05: Well this has to be the signing of the summer – Roy Keane has joined Sky Sports’ punditry team for this season.

Keane has made clear his desire to return to management, but the Corkman couldn’t resist joining Graeme Souness to create the angriest punditry team ever assembled.

“I’ve worked with Sky Sports quite a few times over the years and it’s always been an experience I’ve enjoyed, so this makes absolute sense,” Keane said.

“It’s a game of opinions, I’ve never shied away from giving mine and that’s only going to continue this season. Sky Sports has always been famous for the heated debates – I look forward to starting a few more.”

What’s on?

12:55: Plenty. Four Premier League fixtures this afternoon and four of the eight sides in action will be using Euston train station. Can’t see that going horribly wrong.

Sunday fixtures: West Ham vs Manchester United, Crystal Palace vs Wolves, Chelsea vs Liverpool and Arsenal vs Aston Villa.

I think we call that a veritable buffet of football. *Ticks off Word of the Day calendar*

Afternoon

12:50: You here for the West Ham vs Manchester United match? Good, you’re in the right place. Congratulations.

How’s everyone feeling today? Few sore heads around I’m sure.

I had my first (and last) ever trip to the dog track last night. 12 races and not a single winner. That has to be a record of some kind?

Anyway, back to more important matters.

Fresh from their Europa League exploits – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel down to London for a clash against West Ham who, for my money, are flying under the radar in the battle for a top-six finish.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side haven’t tasted defeat since the opening day against Manchester City.

All the ingredients for a cracking Sunday fixture. Standby for team news.

WEST HAM vs MANCHESTER UNITED – EARLY TEAM NEWS

West Ham‘s long-term absentee Winston Reid could return for the under-23s next week or the week after.

The 31-year-old has been sidelined since his knee injury against Swansea almost a year and a half ago, but could be nearing a return.

Manuel Lanzini has a small problem, which will be assessed on Saturday. Arthur Masuaku will be unavailable after his sending-off at Aston Villa on Monday and is expected to be replaced by Aaron Cresswell.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to have Daniel James back against the Hammers, but the Manchester United manager again expects to be without Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw.

James missed Thursday’s Europa League win against Astana due to a knock sustained against Leicester and will be assessed ahead of the trip to the capital.

Solskjaer is not expecting Pogba (ankle) or Martial (thigh) to return on Sunday, while left-back Shaw (hamstring) remains sidelined.
