Updates on the fitness of a number of Manchester United stars have emerged online this afternoon, ahead of their meeting with West Ham United.
West Ham vs Man United
The Red Devils are set to travel to the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, for their latest Premier League outing.
United head into proceedings having put a disappointing streak of no wins in 3 firmly behind them over the last week.
First off, a solitary Marcus Rashford strike saw the Manchester giants put Leicester City to the sword at Old Trafford last weekend.
And one goal again proved enough for United in their Europa League curtain-raiser last night, with youngster Mason Greenwood having been the player on the scoresheet versus Kazakh outfit Astana.

West Ham, meanwhile, are currently enjoying a solid run of form of their own.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men are unbeaten in 5 across all competitions, including 3-1 and 2-0 Premier League wins over Watford and Norwich respectively.
United’s sidelined stars
And the Hammers’ hopes of carrying their solid early-season form beyond this weekend’s fixtures have today been boosted, by updates on the fitness of a number of Manchester United’s key performers.
Speaking on the back of his side’s victory over Astana last night, Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was questioned on the status of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw, all of whom have been sidelined of late.
Solskjaer, though, in a blow for his side, confirmed that the trio are set to miss out this weekend:
‘Not really, no. They’ve not been training yet so I don’t think so.’
On the potential involvement of the in-form Daniel James at the London Stadium, the Norwegian tactician continued:
‘Daniel James? I don’t know. He’s not trained in the last few days. Hopefully, but not sure. We’ll have a recovery day with everyone tomorrow and we’ll see on Saturday.’
Pogba, Shaw and Martial all out of @ManUtd trip to West Ham. Solskjaer ‘hopeful’ Daniel James will be fit.
