Manchester United vs West Ham United: Match Preview
In the recently concluded match between Manchester United and West Ham United, we witnessed some remote display from Manchester United where something was lacking in the performance of Manchester United. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, but the result could have gone in favour of the Red Devils. United dominated the game thoroughly but failed to score more than once thus losing 2 points to West Ham at home.
However, the League Cup tie being a knock-out one, it is expected that there will be more urgency from the home side to force a result in their favour. There will be definitely few changes made to the first eleven, but it does not seem that Jose Mourinho will not replace many of the players who played in the last week’s match. West Ham will also be looking forward to taking lessons from the last weekend encounter and make amends in their plans to force a result in their favour.

Big news has come in that Jose Mourinho will bring in Bastian Schweinsteiger to the first eleven for the League Cup tie. And if this turns out to be true it remains to be seen how the German midfielder plays for it’s been long that he has played a competitive match. This change could be brought in by Mourinho also because of the fact that Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini will both miss the League Cup encounter due to suspensions.
