Our predicted MUFC XI for the Premier League home game vs West Ham is now in.
Manchester United Football Club play their second Premier League game in just a few days, after waiting what felt like an age for a league encounter due to the scheduling.
The dressing room will be feeling full of confidence after the 4-3 victory away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday, after a solid performance that was capped off with a super late Kobbie Mainoo winner.
Erik ten Hag will be hoping to utilise that display as a springboard to catapult this side back into the Champions League race, though it’s all meaningless unless the lads follow up with another positive outing here.
West Ham United will head up to Manchester trying to upset the applecart, so it’s up to the Red Devils to keep a level head and play like we know they can. Anyway, let’s give you the full run down of the side.
Check out our predicted MUFC XI vs West Ham in full here:
Andre Onana will start in between the sticks, though the man from Cameroon hardly instils confidence and belief in the rest of the side at this point in time.
Diogo Dalot remains the likely choice at right-back as Aaron Wan-Bissaka is seemingly dealing with some sort of injury. Over on the left, Luke Shaw will continue. I’ve gone for a back two of Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. The former was spotted with strapping on his leg on Thursday, though it shouldn’t keep him out here.
Casemiro will start in the defensive-midfield position as he continues to build up his individual fitness levels. Alongside him will be man of the moment Kobbie Mainoo, who always impresses. Bruno Fernandes starts and captain’s the side.
Rasmus Hojlund starts in the main striker position as per usual, as the Dane is now finding some form. To his right and left respectively is Alejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford, completing an unchanged line-up from Thursday’s game.
