Man Utd v West Ham [Premier League]

Man Utd v West Ham [16:00 BST]

West Ham have a number of new (well, old) faces on show. Keeper Joe Hart and right-back Pablo Zabaleta, former Manchester City players of course, start for the visitors, as do ex-Stoke man Marko Arnautovic and, of course, Javier Hernandez.

One suspects Mexico striker Hernandez, who helped United win two Premier League titles during a five-year spell might receive a rather different reception to his comrades Hart and Zabaleta...

Hernandez starts up top in a 4-2-3-1 formation as Mark Noble - who is starting 14th season with the Hammers - skippers the side.

Of course we have already seen Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic play for Manchester United in a competitive fixture - Tuesday's Uefa Super Cup defeat by Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho makes five changes from that game, suspended centre-backs Eric Bailly and Phil Jones returning alongside left-back Daley Blind, midfielder Juan Mata and teenage forward Marcus Rashford.

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Blind, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Rashford, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku.

West Ham XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Fernandes, Obiang, Noble, Ayew, Arnautovic, Hernandez.
