West Ham United prepare to host Manchester United at the Olympic Stadium, full of confidence following a dominant 8-0 win over the English lower-league outfit Macclesfield Townin the Carabao Cup.
The Hammers are seeking their first home victory in the Premier League after suffering two defeats, to Bournemouth and Wolverhampton, and playing out a 0-0 draw with Chelsea. With Mauricio Pellegrini’s job still on the line following four straight losses in the opening four fixtures, the Irons have to grab a positive outcome to move away from the danger zone and enter more peaceful waters. A stunning 3-1 win over Everton at the Goodison Park might be a good starting point for the former Manchester City manager to build a solid league campaign.
After a scandalous Carabao Cup elimination by the Championship side Derby County, Jose Mourinho’s position seems to be at risk, with Zinedine Zidane being named as a potential replacement. Therefore, the Red Devils have to secure all three points against the London side if the former Real Madrid boss intends to remain on the bench until New Year. The 3-time Champions League winners have clinched two straight away victories, over Burnley and Watford following a 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion. However, last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Wolves currently sees them trailing Liverpool by eight points, with only six matches played so far.
Winston Reid, Jack Wilshere, Javier Hernandez Chicharito, and Andy Carroll are set to miss the encounter due to injuries, while the appearance of Marko Arnautovic still hangs in the balance. On the other hand, Mourinho won’t have Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia, and Marcus Rashford at his disposal as all are struggling with injuries.
