Manchester United vs West Ham
Competition: English Premier League
Date: 5 December 2015 - Time: 15:00 GMT
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Man United have yet to taste defeat on home soil in the top flight and have conceded one goal at Old Trafford this season. Louis van Gaal’s side extended their domestic unbeaten run to six league games with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Leicester City last weekend. The Red Devils will face a make-or-break tie against Wolfsburg next week, as they a victory to guarantee their progress. Rooney will miss the match after suffering an ankle injury and  will be joined on the absentee’s list by Marcos Rojo, who dislocated his shoulder in training. Jesse Lingard has been passed fit and could reclaim the left flank role, though Memphis Depay is also in contention, with the Dutchman also capable of playing centrally behind Anthony Martial. Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Phil Jones are all out through injury.
West Ham United team are currently eighth in the table after starting the season impressively. Anyway, they have collected just two points from their last four top-flight fixtures and a Lambert’s deflected goal denied the Hammers a win against WBA last weekend. The Hammers have a good record against top clubs as they have already beaten four of last season’s top six clubs -  Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea.
Slaven Bilic will be without Diafra Sakho with the Senegal international likely to be ruled out for around two months with a thigh injury.  Andy Carroll should earn a recall to the starting XI then, with Mauro Zarate, Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses behing him. Mark Noble and James Collins are also available for selection after missing through suspension last time out. Enner Valencia and Dimitri Payet remain sidelined.
Manchester United's record overall against West Ham is impressive. They are unbeaten in 13 head-to-heads and have won seven straight over the Hammers at Old Trafford. Furthermore, they have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 8 home matches against the Hammers in all competitions. The Red Devils have kept clean sheets in five successive home games in league and cup.

Probable lineups:
Manchester United: de Gea – McNair, Smalling, Blind – Darmian, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Young – Mata – Rooney, Martial.
West Ham: Adrian – Jenkinson, Tomkins, Reid, Cresswell – Noble, Kouyate – Zarate, Lanzini, Moses –Carroll.
