LINEUPS AND BENCH
With Premier League survival ensured off the back of the massive road win at Leicester City last weekend, West Ham can be at ease Thursday evening against Manchester United in the penultimate match this season at the London Stadium.
It will be a tension-free atmosphere for the Hammers on home field, with another rocky season almost beyond them. With the 2-0 victory over the Foxes, David Moyes is at ease certainly without the pressure of getting a result, against a second place United side looking to lock up the runner-up spot behind champions Manchester City.
It’s an unchanged lineup for West Ham from the weekend, with Adrian remaining in goal to start with Joe Hart available again following his illness. Still no James Collins on the bench, so he’ll have one more chance to play this season against Everton on season finale Sunday.
Meanwhile for Jose Mourinho’s side, who are looking to bounce back from a horrible 1-0 loss to Brighton, a plethora of changes have been made. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are back on the bench after their disappointing displays. United will be hell bent on securing 2nd place for sure.
This two teams of course met at the beginning of the season, with high hopes for both clubs. Unfortunately, it set the tone for West Ham’s disappointing season and we’ll see what happens in this reverse fixture.
