Manchester United will look to put Champions League disappointment behind them when they travel to the London Stadium on Saturday to face high-flying West Ham United in the Premier League.
On Wednesday night, Manchester United lost 3-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in a game they dominated, and should have taken the lead in.
That loss means their Champions League destiny will only be decided in the final group game, for which they travel to Germany to face RB Leipzig next Tuesday.
Manchester United were in excellent form before they loss to PSG, having won four matches in a row. However, there weren’t too many reasons for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be concerned with the team’s performance against PSG, even though they lost.
West Ham United are in great form coming into this game, having only lost one of their last eight Premier League matches. That run has seen them catapult up to fifth in the Premier League table after 10 games, just four points behind league leaders Tottenham Hotspur.
In their last match, West Ham United beat Aston Villa 2-1 on Monday night, with goals from Angelo Ogbonna and Jarrod Bowen, in a match that had its customary share of VAR drama.
