Chelsea’s humbling at the hands of Brighton on Saturday has opened the door for Erik ten Hag’s side to rise to their highest league placing of the season.
West Ham have lost their last four games against today’s opponents, and are winless in 14 visits to Old Trafford. So the omens do not bode well.
Both Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo will be pushing to start this afternoon.
