West Ham are meeting Manchester United today in the Premier League at the London Stadium.

The Hammers are flying high in fifth place after beating Aston Villa last time out and will be hoping to build on their early season form with a win here which could see them finish the weekend in the top four.

Standing in their way is a Manchester United side in mixed form. United came back brilliantly to beat Southampton at St Mary’s last weekend before a disappointing defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted there were plenty of positives to take from the game, but United’s place in the Europe’s elite competition now hangs in the balance and they must get another positive result here if they are to start moving into contention for the top four again.

Here is everything you need to know.

What is the team news?

Michail Antonio is out after a recurrence of his hamstring injury against Aston Villa. Andiy Yarmolenko is back in contention.
