Manchester United are set to face-off against West Ham United this evening in what is the Red’s penultimate game of a long season. United find themselves going into tonight’s game needing a win in order to put their pursuit for the top-four back into their own hands.
Ahead of tonight’s game, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his pre match thoughts and addressed the team news surrounding keeper David de Gea’s inclusion.
Despite number one De Gea’s poor performance against Chelsea in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final, Solskjaer has decided to stick with the Spanish international amid speculation he could lose his starting place.

I was of the opinion beforehand that Sergio Romero might start but the boss has stuck with his No.1. Hopefully the Spaniard can show why Solskjaer thinks it’s the right decision.
