David Moyes will look to upset his former side in a bid to keep West Ham’s top four aspirations on track at Old Trafford.
The Hammers sit fifth going into Sunday’s late kick-off and know a win would take them level on points with Chelsea, who sit fourth, and just three behind United, currently third, having played a game less.
United have been second for much of the season and will be wary of being dragged back into the battle just to finish inside the top four if they do not get a positive result at home here.
