West Ham vs Manchester United: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need to know on how and where to watch West Ham host Manchester United at London Stadium on 5 December at 18:30 CET.
After nine months of not being able to go to a football match, some lucky fans will be able to watch West Ham host Manchester United from within the London Stadium, two teams separated by just one point in the Premier League standings. Unfortunately for other supporters, restrictions remain tighter in other areas of England, so there is still a long way to go to get back to normality.
This should be an interesting contest, as the Hammers are sitting fifth in the table, while United, who have won four consecutive away Premier matches, are ninth. One of the questions surrounding the game is over the approach the Red Devils will take, knowing that a crucial match against RB Leipzig next week could take some of their focus off Saturday’s encounter.
Michail Antonio, the only unavailable 'Hammer'
The hosts go into the game with almost no injuries. Andriy Yarmolenko, who had tested positive for coronavirus, has been training with the team again and he could be thrown back into action.
Meanwhile, Michail Antonio has been ruled out, as he is still having a bit of a problem with his hamstring, so he could be replaced by Sebastien Haller.
Rashford fit enough to play against West Ham?
As for the visitors, United expect Marcus Rashford, a thorn in the side of PSG for much of the game, to be fit enough to play, after being forced off against the Parisian outfit with a shoulder issue. "He’s having treatment now after training," Solksjaer said on Friday. If he is ruled out for the game against West Ham, Mason Greenwood could take his spot.
Cavani and the FA
Cavani is still waiting to hear the result of an investigation by the Football Association (FA) regarding a social media post which could be deemed racist. The Uruguayan striker was seeing some good numbers in his play, averaging a goal or an assist every 32 minutes in the league this season, although with limited time on the pitch.
If he is eligible for the match, he could certainly be in the starting XI, where Bruno Fernandes has a guaranteed spot. If the Portuguese midfielder scores on Saturday, he will become the first United player to score six goals in six consecutive league away games since Denis Law back in 1964. A spot kick always helps.
Luke Shaw is not ready yet for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, but the Norwegian coach will be able to call upon players that were doubtful in the previous days like David de Gea, Alex Telles, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly.
