Manchester United Team News
David de Gea retains his place in goal for Manchester United after an error-dominated performance in the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.
The Spain international has come under intense scrutiny after two faults led to Chelsea goals in the 3-1 semi-final defeat, with Paul Merson saying this week he was ‘flabbergasted’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s overall team selection at Wembley.
In total, Manchester United made four changes from the Chelsea loss, with Paul Pogba, Antonhy Martial and Mason Greenwood back in the starting XI with Timothy Fosu-Mensah getting the nod at left-back.
Eric Bailly, who picked up a head injury in the semi-final loss – Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred and Daniel James make way, with the latter three making the bench.
A win for Manchester United would put them in a strong position for Champions League football next season ahead of the final day clash with Leicester City.
West Ham United Team News
Meanwhile, for West Ham United, who are looking to secure their Premier League survival with a point, manager Davide Moyes, a former Red Devils boss, named the same matchday squad as he did for a vital 3-1 win against Watford last Friday.
The Hammers virtually assured of their safety regardless due to their superior goal difference but Moyes has told the same players to reproduce the performance against the Hornets.
It means Michail Antonio leads the line once more, flanked by Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen with Tomas Soucek playing off the makeshift striker.
