Overview

West Ham saw their three-match winning run come to an end as the Hammers suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the league last weekend. The London club have been in impressive form at home in the league as they lost only three games this season, out of which two were in the month of August.

Sam Allardyce will be looking to further improve West Ham's form by sealing a crucial victory over United, which will keep their hope of qualifying for the next season's Champions League alive.

Meanwhile, United come into this weekend's league fixture after registering a comfortable 3-0 victory over Cambridge United in the FA Cup reply earlier in the midweek. The victory saw them make it to the fifth round of the competition.

Louis van Gaal has helped his side sit third in the league table, despite struggling with away from home and with injuries to several players throughout the season. With Michael Carrick still recovering from his latest injury setback, the Dutchman is likely to field his compatriot Daley Blind in the holding midfield position.

What Managers Say

Sam Allardyce: "Man United have had some very good results recently and the beauty of them is the goalscoring ability in their squad. Our aim is to limit that as much as possible. We need to be tactically astute and try to cause them a few problems."

Louis van Gaal: "Now we have to continue and all players know this is true. It is not so easy because we have to play away in London against West Ham and it was a tough game in Manchester. It shall not be easy but we want to continue and we have to win in London. I am only satisfied at the end of the season because now to be third and in next round doesn't count."
