West Ham vs Man United: Premier League – LIVE!


The Hammers have continued their momentum from last season with an unbeaten start to the campaign and are riding high after a superb victory away from home to Dinamo Zagreb on their Europa League bow on Thursday night.

Man United, meanwhile, came into this weekend top of the Premier League and though Liverpool’s victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday has sent them to the head of the table, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side know victory will take them level on points with their rivals.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to continue his superb start to his second spell at Old Trafford, having scored three times in two appearances so far, while West Ham will be without their own star centre-forward, with Michail Antonio suspended following his red card against Southampton last weekend.
