Kobbie Mainoo netted a late winner at Wolves to spare United’s blushes in a thriller in midweek, taking Erik ten Hag’s side to within touching distance of the top six.
A win over David Moyes’ side would take them above the Hammers, who head into this off the back of a disappointing draw at home to Bournemouth.
But Man United have not won back-to-back league games since November with positive steps forward constantly offset by disappointing displays.
