Team News:

Man United will definitely be without the services of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Phil Jones for this weekend's contest, while the hosts also have a number of doubts, including Donny van de Beek.

Marcus Rashford could be available following an ankle issue, but Anthony Martial was forced off against Milan on Thursday with a hip problem and is unlikely to feature, while Edinson Cavani is battling to overcome a knock, meaning that Mason Greenwood could operate through the middle.

Solskjaer has confirmed that David de Gea is back in Manchester following a visit to Spain, but the goalkeeper is currently self-isolating, meaning that Dean Henderson should continue between the sticks.

Luke Shaw, Fred and Victor Lindelof are expected to return to the side following the clash with Milan, while Amad Diallo, who scored on Thursday, could be in contention for a first start if Rashford is unable to prove his fitness in the build-up to kickoff on Sunday evening.

As for West Ham, Arthur Masuaku, Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko are all unavailable through injury, while Darren Randolph and Ryan Fredericks remain doubts.

The Hammers will also be without Lingard, with the England international ineligible against his parent club, meaning that there could be a start in the final third for Jarrod Bowen.

Moyes could also switch his formation to a back three, with Ben Johnson coming into the team as a left-sided wing-back, allowing Aaron Cresswell to operate alongside Issa Diop and Dawson in the middle.

Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will be the two central midfielders for the visitors, with Said Benrahma likely to be the player to miss out in attack.
