West Ham will be looking to put their disappointing League Cup quarter-final exit in midweek behind them as they take on Manchester United on Saturday. 

It was a disappointing midweek display from the Hammers who were carved open on several occasions by Liverpool in a defensive display that will have frustrated everyone.

It might be a tighter game than most might anticipated as despite the midweek defeat, West Ham have been in decent form in recent weeks.

To add more spice to the fixture, David Moyes comes up against his former employers and are just one point behind United in the table ahead of Saturday’s early kick-off.

However, The Scot has had little joy against Man Utd since his Old Trafford exit in 2014, only winning one of 10 Premier League games against them with Sunderland and West Ham (D2 L7), though that lone victory did come in his last such match in May (1-0 at the London Stadium).

Wolves were in scintillating counter-attacking form against Wolves last weekend, with Jarrod Bowen adding to Mohammed Kudus’ double.

England international Bowen (11 goals) and Kudus (9) are West Ham’s two leading scorers in all competitions this season, and they will likely carry their attacking hopes again here.

With Michail Antonio still injured, they are supported by Lucas Paqueta who assisted all three goals in the West Midlands last Sunday. He has now already matched last season’s tally from the 28 played making this his most productive season so far in East London.

Who’s available for the Hammers?

West Ham are expected to rotate their side after making si changes in the midweek defeat to Liverpool in the League Cup.

Maxwel Cornet and Nayef Aguerd could both be available following illness, giving Moyes additional options to his squad.

A win for West Ham could take them to 30 points after 18 games for the first time since the 2014/15 campaign, showcasing their good start despite some indifferent performances.
