Match preview

McTominay fit - How Man Utd could line up against West Ham

Scott McTominay was withdrawn late on against Brentford but should be passed fit to face West Ham in the Premier League

Manchester United host West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday in a match that could have ramifications for the top four at the end of the season.

At the moment, the Red Devils are down in seventh, but that is only two points behind West Ham, who are currently in fourth.

There are only two points separating West Ham, Tottenham, Arsenal and Man Utd at the moment.

Despite a lacklustre first half, Ralf Rangnick's side emerged victorious against Brentford during the week, with Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford all scoring in a 3-1 away win.

Luke Shaw and Edinson Cavani are still doubtful for this one, while Paul Pogba won't return until February.

Eric Bailly is at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Man Utd were impressive at points in the second half against Brentford, so Ralf Rangnick may field an unchanged XI.

That means David de Gea starting in goal behind a back four of Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane and Alex Telles. Harry Maguire might have to settle for a place on the bench again.

Fred will partner McTominay in midfield, with Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Elanga and Mason Greenwood making up the attacking midfield trio.

Cristiano Ronaldo, despite his strop after being substituted against Brentford, will start.
