Will Manchester United’s unbeaten Premier League streak continue?
Last weekend, the Red Devils looked set to lose at Stamford Bridge, the deadlock broken by an 88th minute penalty.
However, in the very last second, Casemiro’s towering header snatched a point against Chelsea.
This means Erik ten Hag’s team have taken 20 points from their last nine outings, only beaten by Man City since the shambolic display at Brentford.
While their hosts sit sixth, West Ham United are down in 13th, although their form is improving.
On Monday night, Kurt Zouma’s heade,r followed by Saïd Benrahma’s late penalty, saw the Irons beat Bournemouth 2-0.
David Moyes’ men have now won three of their last five, so are beginning to rectify their slow start.
Both clubs were involved in European action on Thursday night.
West Ham wrapped up top spot in their Europa Conference League group; Manuel Lanzini’s spot-kick downing Silkeborg.
Thus, the Hammers can take it easy this forthcoming midweek against FCSB at Arena Națională.
Over in the Europa League, despite swatting aside Sheriff 3-0 last midweek, Manchester United have work to do.
They must beat Real Sociedad by two-clear goals at Anoeta next up to snatch first place.
Before then, which United will prevail at Old Trafford?
Manchester United team news
Erik ten Hag named a very strong side on Thursday; Diogo Dalot, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring.
However, don’t expect Ronaldo to start this one, with Rashford retuning up front.
Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho are also set to come back in, displacing Tyrell Malacia and Alejandro Garnacho respectively.
Harry Maguire came on for his first club appearance since 15 September, but the captain will join Ronaldo in reserve.
Scott McTominay is available again after a one-match ban; Bruno Fernandes and Dalot are one booked away from suspension.
West Ham United team news
David Moyes meanwhile rested many of his big guns for Thursday’s win over Silkeborg.
But, Łukasz Fabiański, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell, Tomáš Souček, Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen and Gianluca Scamacca will all be restored.
Summer signing Nayef Aguerd finally made his West Ham debut in midweek, managing 76 minutes after an ankle injury.
Fellow new-recruits Lucas Paquetá and Maxwel Cornet are both out injured.
Michail Antonio has previously scored twice against Man United, but will be on the bench due to Scamacca’s impressive form.
