Manchester United travel to London to take on West Ham in the Premier League clash on Sunday. West Ham will be hoping to extend the unbeaten run to six games in all competitions. And a win would lift the Hammers above the visitors.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Man United have blown hot and cold. But, on their day, they have the potential to beat most teams. Here are three danger men for West Ham to be wary of.
David De Gea
David De Gea always seems to raise his game against West Ham. The Spain international has also signed a new long-term Man United contract so he will be buoyed by this news.
Over the last season, De Gea’s form has not been as consistent as it usually is. But the 28-year-old is still a world-class goalkeeper and he will be tough to beat – as usual.
Man United broke the world-record fee for a defender when they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer. He has immediately improved their defence and shown that he is a menace from set-pieces.
The England defender will be tasked with keeping Sebastien Haller quiet. West Ham fans will hope the Frenchman – who cost roughly half of Maguire’s price – can get the better of his counterpart on Sunday.
Dan James might have made this list in Marcus Rashford’s place but he is an injury doubt. Rashford is hitting some form this season with three goals and an assist in five games.
The England striker is thriving in the centre-forward role after Solskjaer allowed West Ham’s nemesis Romelu Lukaku to leave. With two goals and three assists in five games against the Hammers, Rashford could become the next Lukaku.
