Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's visit to West Ham United in the Premier League.

Manchester United travel to West Ham United on Sunday afternoon hoping to maintain their place in the Premier League's top four.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, after failing to win three consecutive games prior to the international break, have claimed important 1-0 victories over Leicester City and Astana this week.

However, the Red Devils will be wary of the threat carried by West Ham, who convincingly beat United 3-1 in last season's corresponding fixture.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Man United ahead of the match at the London Stadium.
