Manchester United v West Ham: match preview


This is a genuine six-pointer in which Manchester United can leapfrog West Ham into fourth if they win, whereas if David Moyes’ side take the spoils they will pull five points ahead of United. After Cristiano Ronaldo drew criticism for his visible unhappiness at being replaced during Wednesday’s win at Brentford there should be no surprise if, neck problem permitting, the 36-year-old sparkles against West Ham.
