The Hammers arrive at Old Trafford for a Sunday fixture, but what do the record and form books tell us to expect?

• When it comes to fixtures between the two sides, at Old Trafford, Manchester United have won 17, drawn 2 and lost 2.

• The last time Manchester United lost to West Ham was back in May 2016 when they were beaten 3-2 in the last ever fixture at Upton Park.

• When it comes to games being played on a Sunday, Jose Mourinho has yet to lose. In 112 fixtures, Jose has won 86 and drawn 26, a remarkable record.
