West Ham boss Moyes expects Chicharito to miss Man Utd

Moyes, who replaced Slaven Bilic in November with West Ham in the bottom three, has kept them up with two games remaining.

There was some fanciful talk about winning the December Manchester derby to reduce the gap and then catch City over Christmas. It was his snap shot in the first half that triggered United's only real spell of dominance.

Is the same true of the current United side?

MF Scott McTominay, 7 - Mourinho's newly crowned player of the year was handed his first league start since victory over Liverpool two months ago. For example, United lost to West Brom, and more recently, Brighton.

While United need just 1 point to guarantee second place in the table and West Ham have avoided the drop, it might seem like there is little to play for, but with an FA Cup final around the corner Mourinho's men will need to impress. Players will leave and players will arrive at Old Trafford, but it is the scale of changes that is important.

"We are putting things in place, like pre-season, as much as we can, but ultimately I have got a decision to make and the club has as well".

Romelu Lukaku is out of action with an ankle injury, while Marouane Fellaini has a muscle injury.

Moyes tried to put more pressure on West Ham by revealing that he had received an offer from another club while in charge, which is understood to have been Stoke City before Paul Lambert was appointed in January.

"The most important quality is to be a man - M-A-N - capitals". Proper man. Football and society is not full of them. So when you find one of them you have to value him. But [as a club] we are positive. Key players for United are not in the World Cup, so it is possible that some of United's best players will not feature for the club on Thursday. "The Burnley defeat, with all that went on, was one of them but the FA Cup defeat at Wigan was, for me, worse because I wanted to do well in the competition", he told the London Evening Standard. Manchester United have won 45.

West Ham have responded to supporters' complaints of the London Stadium by including big concourse shows of captains, crests and report breakers to make it really feel extra like dwelling.
