Manchester United XI vs West Ham: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for FA Cup game today


Manchester United have made six changes for their FA Cup showdown with West Ham tonight, with Marcus Rashford and Casemiro on the bench.

Erik ten Hag confirmed ahead of the game that both Luke Shaw and Fred have “questions” as he selected his starting lineup, with the former missing and the latter on the bench.

The fifth-round tie has seen changes amid a hectic run of fixtures, with this game coming in between the Carabao Cup final and a Premier League trip to Liverpool.


One added bonus from the weekend was Rashford being able to start after an ankle knock, the in-form attacker coming through unscathed and able to be rested for the final moments at Wembley. However, he is on the bench tonight as Ten Hag protects his in-form man.

Anthony Martial is once again absent due to an ongoing hip injury, for which a return date has not been specified by United. Otherwise, Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen remain absent with long-term issues.

Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire are partnered in defence as the likes of Scott McTominay, Tyrell Malacia and Marcel Sabitzer also force their way into the starting lineup, with Wout Weghorst leading the line ahead of a supporting trio that includes Alejandro Garnacho. Jadon Sancho misses out due to illness.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Lindelof, Malacia, McTominay, Sabitzer, Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho, Weghorst

Subs: Heaton, Martinez, Varane, Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Fred, Pellistri, Elanga, Rashford
