Manchester United head to the Boleyn Ground for the last time this evening, with Louis van Gaal’s side somehow still in the hunt for a top four finish. A win here is vital, but it will not be easy as West Ham will want to leave their stadium in style.
Louis van Gaal deserves some credit for picking the best front six available at the moment. Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial all start. Marcus Rashford is also back in the side after being rested at the weekend.
This is a real opportunity for Manchester United, and the players have to grasp this huge chance with both hands. Its that vital, that a win here could save the Dutch manager his job for another twelve months, although that necessarily won’t please large portions of the United fanbase.
De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Rooney, Mata, Rashford, Martial.
Subs: Romero, Borthwick-Jackson, Jones, Carrick, Lingard, Januzaj, Memphis.
