Manchester United will look to pick yet another three points as a place in the top four beckons...

Manchester United will look to get a second successive win in the 2021-22 Premier League when they host West Ham at Old Trafford on Saturday evening. They registered a convincing 3-1 victory over Brentford in their previous match and now they will look to build on that momentum as another three points in the weekend will fire them to the fourth spot, albeit temporarily as Tottenham and Arsenal will be in action on Sunday.

On the other hand, West Ham after winning three games on the trot suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat to Leeds United in their last match. Hence David Moyes' troops will be eager to get back in form against a United side, who have been inconsistent throughout.

Here's how to watch Manchester United vs West Ham in the 2021-22 Premier League from India.

Manchester United vs West Ham: Team news & key stats

Ralf Rangnick will not have the luxury of picking his best XI from a full squad as there are a significant number of abseentees. Paul Pogba (groin injury), Jese Lingard (ankle injury), Edinson Cavani (muscular discomfort), Luke Shaw (hamstring), and Aaron Wan Bissaka (illness) will not be a part of the matchday squad along with Eric Baily who is at AFCON with Ivory Coast.

There are uncertainties over the selection of Jadon Sancho, whereas Scott McTominay will hope to get back in the squad after being taken off against Brentford with a back injury. Victor Lindelof has been granted a leave after a burglary attempt at his residence earlier in the week.

David Moyes will miss Angelo Ogbonna (knee), while Tomáš Souček and Mark Noble are still doubts for the fixture. Saïd Benrahma is also unavailable as he had been with the Algeria squad in AFCON, albeit his country's campaign ended in the group stage. However, Kurt Zouma has returned to training after his hamstring tendon injury and it remains to be seen whether Moyes decides to use him.

Key Stats:

  1. West Ham have already won away against Man Utd this season, beating them 1-0 in the League Cup. Only three teams have ever won twice away against the Red Devils in the same season – Aston Villa (1919-20), Tottenham Hotspur (1989-90) and Chelsea (2004-05).
  2. This is just the fifth time in Premier League history West Ham are facing Manchester United while above them in the table, with the Hammers failing to win any of the previous such games; 1-2 in August 1995, 0-0 in August 1998, 1-2 in September 2014 and 1-3 in December 2020.
  3. Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has never won an away Premier League match against the Red Devils in 14 attempts (D4 L10), with only Harry Redknapp managing more games at Old Trafford without winning in the Premier League era (15 games).
  4. Cristiano Ronaldo has been involved in seven goals in his last five Premier League appearances against West Ham (6 goals, 1 assist), with these involvements accounting for 70% of the total goals Manchester United have scored in these games (7/10).
  5. Last season, West Ham had the second-best home record in the Premier League (34 points), accounting for 52% of their total points last term. This season, the Hammers have the fourth best away record in the competition, with their 20 points on the road accounting for 54% of their overall points so far this term.
