Manchester United v West Ham - Early Team-News

This Sunday the 2017 / 2018 Premier league season starts for West Ham United.

The Hammers face a difficult away trip to take on Jose Mourinho`s Manchester United, a side tipped to challenge for the Premier League title.

Ahead of the big kick-off we`ve assembled some early team-news.

Starting with our hosts, Manchester United:

Mourinho is likely to give Premier League debuts to Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof who arrived from Everton, Chelsea and Benfica in the summer transfer window.

However, Mourinho will be without the injured trio of Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo, all of whom have long-term injuries.

Continuing with West Ham United:

Slaven Bilic will be without several of his first team squad with Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini, Cheikhou Kouyate, Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll all recovering from injuries.

However, Bilic is expected to start with all four of his summer signings - Hart, Zabaleta, Arnautovic and Hernandez, with the latter making his debut against one of his former clubs.
