Manchester United return to Premier League action after a horrible Carabao Cup outing against Derby County.

The Red Devils were knocked out of the competition by the lower league side on penalties and Sergio Romero picked up a red card as well.

United have been poor this season and already sit eight points behind leaders Liverpool after six games. However, a win against West Ham should relieve some of the pressure since Liverpool could drop points as they travel to Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba have been in the news regarding a training ground incident but the Frenchman took part in a few drills as United prepared for the game.

Mourinho has some tough decisions to make about our starting XI, given that a number of our players aren’t firing on all cylinders.

Alexis Sanchez is one man who is yet to find his shooting boots this season and drew a blank against Wolverhampton Wanderers last week.

The Chilean has been poor for us this season but Luke Shaw has been excellent as the Englishman has found his form under Mourinho. The Englishman isn’t back to his best but is slowly getting there.

Marcus Rashford was also going through the paces in training while Antonio Valencia looked to be in decent shape ahead of our clash at the London Stadium.

Chris Smalling and Andreas Pereira could get a game against the Hammers but the most important thing for the club would be to get all three points on Saturday.
