It is the battle of the inconsistent on Saturday as Manchester United travel to East London when they face West Ham United in the Premier League.

An unlikely point at Anfield put a glistened feeling in the hearts of United fans, who saw the team crash out of European football for the 2023/24 season after the loss to Bayern Munich last week.

The Red Devils are looking for their first win away against a side that finished in the top 9 last season. Goals have been scarce for United, but the Hammers have also developed a pattern of real inconsistency - which brings a big feeling of unpredictability in what could be a cracking tie between the two sides in the early Saturday kick off.

Ten Hag’s side sit in 7th, 6 points behind fourth placed Manchester City ahead of the game. A win would temporarily put United above Newcastle in 6th place, but a win for David Moyes’ side could see his team leap above the Old Trafford side before the other Saturday kick-offs.

Here is the expected lineup for Manchester United:

André Onana kept a clean sheet at Anfield and generally impressed, as he eases into Premier League football at least.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka should start as Diogo Dalot is suspended after picking up a red card late on in the game against Liverpool.

Jonny Evans is rolling back the years and is expected to start as Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf are unavailable.

Raphael Varane is back in the team and put on a stellar display against the Kop, and should partner the Northern Irishman.

Luke Shaw should expect to start and expect a stern test against Mohammed Kudus.

Kobbie Mainoo really impressed in the deep end at Anfield and should start to continue his impressive rookie appearances.

Scott McTominay is expected to start ahead of Sofyan Amrabat and most certainly Christian Eriksen, who has only just returned to first team training.

Antony should keep his place in the lineup as he seems to be the preferred choice on the right side for ten Hag at the minute.

Bruno Fernandes will return to the side after serving his one match suspension last weekend.

Alejandro Garnacho should provide a problem for Vladimir Coufal, and is expected to start ahead of Marcus Rashford.

Rasmus Hojlund will be hoping to break his goal scoring drought as he looks to score in the Premier League in his 16th attempt.
