Today’s starting line-up sees Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal making three changes to his starting XI that opened against Liverpool at Anfield in the Europa League defeat in midweek.
The changes see Michael Carrick, Jesse Lingered and Ander Herrera all coming into the side for the suspended Juan Mata, Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin, who are both dropped to the bench today.
Carrick will play alongside Marouane Fellaini and Herrera in the midfield, while Lingered starts on the wing.
Anthony Martial and Marcus Ashford will again lead a very young attacking line, with youngster Ro-Shaun Williams earning a place on the bench.
Annan Januzaj, Morgan Schneiderlin and Matteo Darmian are also on the bench for Manchester United which needs to pick themselves up quickly, following the disappointing 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in Europe on Thursday.
Meanwhile, West Ham United have recalled forward Andy Caroll and defender Winston Reid to the starting team as the visitors look to shocked the Red Devils on their home soil.
Reece Oxford is the one to make way for Reid, with Pedro Obiang giving way for Carroll.
Darren Randolph replaces Adrian in goal.
