It’s a huge game for both sides as the race for the Champions League places heats up.

The Hammers are currently sitting in fourth spot in the Premier League table. Fifth placed Tottenham have three games in hand over us, however, whilst sixth placed Arsenal have two and seventh placed Man United have one.

Manchester United can jump above us in the table this afternoon with a win and Ralf Rangnick will be desperate for the victory with the two-week winter break on the horizon.

David Moyes will be as well, obviously. Since taking over at the London Stadium, the Scot has rebuilt his reputation and is now once again considered to be one of the very best managers in the top flight.

He endured a torrid time during his spell in charge of Manchester United and he will be determined to take three points when he returns to Old Trafford this afternoon.

The Scot has once again opted for a strong side and has made three changes from our disappointing 3-2 defeat to Leeds at the London Stadium on Sunday.

The Hammers desperately need a good result today in order to make up for the horror show last weekend.

Going to Old Trafford and winning is never easy though.

We’ve only won twice in the league away at Manchester United since 1986. We did beat them at Old Trafford this season though in the Carabao Cup back in September.

Anything will be possible this afternoon as long as each and every West Ham player is switched on for the 90 minutes and gives 100 per cent.

This is a huge game. The boys need to stand up and be counted.
