Manchester United have potentially been dealt good news ahead of this weekend’s clash with West Ham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side makes the trip to the London Stadium on Sunday as they look to extend their unbeaten start to the season in the Premier League.
After surprisingly leaving Switzerland with nothing to show for their trip earlier this week, another stern test awaits as David Moyes’ side is also unbeaten this season.
Michail Antonio’s late red card against Southampton last week means they are without their star striker but the Hammers could have been dealt another huge blow after Moyes revealed that Said Benrahma picked up a knock in their 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb.
“In terms of team news, Said Benrahma got a knock on his knee when he came on against Dinamo Zagreb, but apart from that the squad are mostly fully available,” Moyes is quoted as saying by the official West Ham website.
This season, the Algerian midfielder has been in inspired form, scoring two goals and assisting as many in four games. After losing their top goalscorer, not having Benrahma at his disposal would be a gutting blow for Moyes.
It will come as positive news for Manchester United, who would extend their record of unbeaten away games to 29 if they avoid defeat.
