How Manchester United could line-up vs West Ham

Man United resume their FA Cup charge against the Hammers at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Alejandro Garnacho could return to the starting XI on Wednesday night.

Manchester United are straight back to business at Old Trafford on Wednesday night following their Carabao Cup triumph at Wembley.

Nearly six years since they last got their hands on silverware, United overcame Newcastle beneath the famous arch to maintain their Quadruple dream. Next up for Erik ten Hag and his players is an FA Cup fifth round meeting with Premier League opponents West Ham.

With games coming thick and fast in different competitions, Ten Hag will decide whether or not to shuffle his pack for this midweek tie. It is their third match in as many competitions in seven days and that will come into his thinking when submitting the United team sheet.

Raphael Varane might be one to make way given the hectic schedule – with bitter rivals Liverpool to follow in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon – while Marcus Rashford was nursing an ankle problem before he did start (and score) in the Carabao Cup showpiece.

During his pre-match press conference, Ten Hag raised doubts over Luke Shaw and Fred when it came to his selection plans as both players have picked up minor knocks. Christian Eriksen, Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial will not feature due to respective long-term injury setbacks.

Tyrell Malacia and Marcel Sabitzer are in pole position to deputise. Should rest be afforded to Rashford, there are two main candidates to step in for the rejuvenated England forward: Jadon Sancho and Argentina starlet Alejandro Garnacho.

United captain Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof will compete to replace Varane at centre-back.

Manchester United predicted line-up vs West Ham (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Sabitzer; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Weghorst.
