Where to watch

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.25pm GMT.

Overview

United come into this fixture after a 1-1 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. Jamie Vardy scored his record 11th consecutive league goal, which was cancelled by Bastian Schweinsteiger's first goal for Red Devils.

Louis van Gaal will be hoping to bounce back when they face the Hammers after two disappointing draws in the last two fixtures. A victory could see them regain the top spot if Manchester City and the Foxes fail to win their respective fixtures.

West Ham enter this match after a 1-1 draw at the hands of West Bromwich Albion in front of their home fans. The Upton Park outfit are not enjoying a great run in recent times as they are without a win in the last four matches.

Slaven Bilic will have an eye on sealing a victory over United, who are undefeated at home in the league this season. Injuries to key players have also not helped the London side's cause as they will have a tough task to beat the Old Trafford club on Saturday.

What managers say

Slaven Bilic: "They are winning and not conceding goals. Somebody said they are boring but I am not sure why people are saying this. They are keeping the ball, they are not a team who give you the ball and defend – you can say that this kind of football is sometimes boring."
