Manchester United Squad vs West Ham United
6:22pm – Manchester United entertain West Ham at Old Trafford this evening with an 8pm kick-off, looking to maintain their position of the top of the Premier League table.

A home win could see United go 4 points clear, an away win could see the Hammers rise as high as 5th.
