Manchester United face West Ham in what is a do or die match as they seek to jump above Manchester City in the Premier League tabel for the fouth place. City’s draw against Arsenal meant that United’s fate lies in their own hands. So if Manchester United win both their remaining fixture, United will finish fourth and qualify for the next year’s Champions League.
Anthony Martial who was injured while warming up for the Norwich game misses out. It is actually not clear how long will the Frenchman be out but The Telegraph is reporting that United will have to play against West Ham without their star man. Without Martial, United will have to trust in Lingard and Rashford to provide the pace and trickery upfront. Rashford who was rested for the Norwich game should be back and this means that Wayne Rooney will be expected to play a deeper role. Juan Mata the goalscorer at Norwich is again expected to take up the right wing position where he is not comfortable.
