HALF TIME

Half time at Old Trafford and the game is goalless.

CORRECTION!

Diop will replace Ogbonna, not Balbuena

20:4717 days ago

14'

20:4517 days ago

13'

The stretcher is out for Ogbonna, he won't be able to continue.

Such a shame for one of West Ham's most consistent performers this season.

Balbuena comes on to replace him

20:4317 days ago

10'

West Ham struggling to get any sort of foothold in the game, but United's possession lacks the intensity to cause any real danger.

As that was being typed, United speed up the play as Telles slides Martial in first time, but Fabianski does well to come out and smother the chance for a corner.

Ogbonna has stayed down following the challenge.

20:3817 days ago

6'

Still it's United on the front font as the edge closer and closer to the penalty area.

A very tense game so far.

West Ham have Tomas Soucek available after the Czech midfielder’s red card against Fulham was overturned.

He was dismissed in injury-time of the Hammers’ 0-0 draw on Saturday when he was judged to have elbowed Aleksandar Mitrovic, even though the incident appeared accidental.

Forward Michail Antonio will be assessed after coming off against Fulham with fatigue, and attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard cannot play under the terms of his loan deal from Manchester United.

Ole's inconsistent Reds

Manchester United shocked the footballing world with their 9-0 victory over Southampton.

However, with the result sandwiched by a loss to Sheffield United and a draw to Everton, it appears Solskjaer's men are struggling to maintain their often impressive performances.
