Manchester United team news & predicted line-up vs West Ham United

In this piece, we take a look at the latest Manchester United team news ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash with West Ham United


Manchester United are set to welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford on Sunday, October 30th, as part of the latest round of Premier League fixtures.

Erik ten Hag’s troops will head into proceedings hopeful of keeping alive a fine recent stretch of form.

After following up an impressive downing of Tottenham with a hard-fought point at Stamford Bridge, the Red Devils turned their attentions towards matters on the continent on Thursday night.

And, when all was said and done, United emerged comfortable victors, booking their spot in the knockout rounds of the Europa League courtesy of a 3-0 downing of Moldovan outfit Sheriff.

Erik Ten Hag, as a result, will have his sights firmly set on an eighth successive outing without defeat on Sunday, courtesy of victory over a West Ham outfit on the up.

Who, though, will be at the disposal of the Red Devils’ boss? And, more significantly, who will not?

Predicted Manchester United line-up vs West Ham

Absentee/doubt list

Raphael Varane

The most high-profile absence from the Manchester United setup this weekend will be star defender Raphael Varane.

The Frenchman suffered a thigh injury versus Chelsea last weekend, departing the Stamford Bridge pitch in tears.

He is expected to remain sidelined until after the Qatar World Cup.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Another member of the Red Devils’ defensive ranks who could yet be included in the matchday squad on Sunday, on the other hand, is Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

AWB has been nursing a muscular injury for the majority of the month to date, but, after being left out in midweek as a precaution, finally looks set to mark his return to the bench to face West Ham.

Anthony Martial

Too inching towards a return, Anthony Martial could be in line to feature off the bench on Sunday, after a spell on the sidelines with a lower back issue.

The Frenchman is now back in full training, and after being left out against Sheriff, looks primed to imminently reinforce boss Ten Hag’s options up top.

Brandon Williams

Something of a forgotten man on the red half of Manchester, Brandon Williams is yet to take to the pitch this season, after picking up an injury in pre-season on the back of his return from a loan spell with Norwich City.

And though he is closing on a return to first-team training at Carrington, Williams nevertheless looks unlikely to see any significant playing time over the coming weeks and months.

Axel Tuanzebe

Much the same can be said for Axel Tuanzebe, another out-of-favour member of Ten Hag’s defensive ranks to have sustained a long-term injury prior to the campaign kicking into gear.

Speaking recently, United’s headmaster confirmed that the 24-year-old is unlikely to regain full fitness until at least the new year.
