West Ham will have to do without their all-time record Premier League scorer against Manchester United.

Michail Antonio is suspended after his sending off against Southampton.

That may force David Moyes into a reorganisation in a bid to combat the visitors’ potent attacking threat.

Cristiano Ronaldo already has three goals after returning to the club during the summer transfer window.

Here’s all the information you need before the fixture.

When is it?

The match will kick off at 2pm on Sunday 19 September at the London Stadium.

How can I watch?

It will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, with coverage starting from 1pm. If you’re not a Sky customer you can grab a NOWTV Day Pass here to watch without a subscription.

What was team news

West Ham will be forced to alter their approach after Michail Antonio’s suspension, short as David Moyes is of an alternative striking option. Jarrod Bowen may be shifted inside and Moyes may opt to return to a back-five with which he has previously had success at the club, particularly with a glut of centre-back options.

Conversely, Manchester United will have Aaron Wan-Bissaka available - he is only suspended in Europe. Edinson Cavani is a doubt after not travelling to Switzerland while Marcus Rashford remains out.

Confirmed line-ups

West Ham — Fabianski; Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice (C); Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Vlasic.

Man Utd — De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire (C), Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba; Cristiano Ronaldo.

Odds

West Ham: 10/3

Draw: 3/1

Manchester United: 3/4

Prediction

West Ham will hope to challenge Manchester United but shorn of Michail Antonio, they may be lacking both forward thrust and a useful out-ball. They have the defensive resources to frustrate but stopping a fully-loaded Manchester United side may prove difficult. West Ham 1-2 Manchester United
