Manchester United will take on West Ham United in the Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Catch the highlights of the match on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm BST.


United suffered their second league defeat in the previous fixture against Leicester City. The Red Devils were given a two-goal lead by Robin van Persie and Angel Di Maria's early goals. However, the Foxes pulled one back to make it 2-1 at the end of the half time.

Louis van Gaal's side extended their lead by another goal from Ander Herrera just before the hour mark. However, Leicester bounced back and scored four more goals to seal a dramatic 5-3 victory over United in front of their home fans.

The defeat has seen United sit 12<sup>th in the league table with five points after five matches. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager would be desperate for a win against West Ham at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, the Hammers come into this game after sealing a 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Upton Park. West Ham scored twice in the opening seven minutes as Winston Reid and Diafra Sakho were on the scoresheet.

Morgan Amalfitano's late strike saw Sam Allardyce's side seal three points against Liverpool. The visitors would be hoping to take advantage of United's injury worries and look for another win to climb further up the league table.

What Managers Say

Louis van Gaal: "At the start we won all of our [pre-season] games but now we are in difficult circumstances. We should have won last weekend - we had to win when we were 3-1 up. If we had, we would have been two points off second place. But because of the loss you are now questioning me. If we won then it would have been different. We will overcome things - the season lasts a long time."

Sam Allardyce: "They've got a few injuries, particularly defensive ones, so it's another opportunity for us to exploit. We are going into the game with confidence, and as underdogs. Hopefully we can go out and continue our good performances and get a result."
