Manchester United v West Ham - Early Team-News

The 2017 / 2018 season gets underway this Sunday, for Manchester United, when they face West Ham United at Old Trafford.

After finishing sixth in the last two consecutive campaign`s, United will be looking to start this season with a win.

Ahead of the fixture, we`ve coupled together some early team-news.

Starting with Manchester United:

Jose Mourinho will give his three summer signings their debuts in this fixture, with Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic all set to start.

On the negative side, Jose Mourinho will be without the injured trio of Luke Shaw, Ashley young and Marcos Rojo, all of whom are recovering from injuries sustained last season.

Continuing with West Ham:

Slaven Bilic is set to give West Ham debuts to his summer signings - Joe Hart (loan), Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and a former favourite of United supporters, Javier Hernandez.

However, like us, West Ham United have injury problems and will be without the following players for this fixture - Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini, Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Cheikhou Kouyate.
