Predicted Manchester United line-up vs West Ham: Eriksen returns

Stretty News predicts Manchester United’s line-up to face West Ham in the Premier League.

The Reds need three wins to secure a place in the top four. Erik ten Hag will demand a response from Thursday night’s defeat at Brighton because anything less than a win at West Ham would be a huge setback.

Former United manager David Moyes will be out to cause an upset, knowing that the Reds have struggled on the road this season.

That worrying away form is mostly against top teams so that doesn’t include West Ham. We should be fine!

Predicted Manchester United XI vs West Ham

David de Gea will start between the sticks, as per usual.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will keep his place at right-back, while Tyrell Malacia gets the nod at left-back. Meanwhile, Luke Shaw deserves to keep his place at centre-back alongside Victor Lindelof.

Casemiro starts in midfield behind Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes. United will need to keep the ball a lot better than they did at Brighton, which is why I think the Dane will make a big difference.

In attack, Marcus Rashford will operate from the left flank. Anthony Martial will take up a central position, with Antony cutting in from the right.

Manchester United line-up: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes; Antony, Martial, Rashford.
