Both these clubs will be on a high after their mid-week victories in the Capital One Cup and Sam Allardyce will be hoping his side can continue their impressive away form that’s seen them beat Tottenham at White Hart Lane twice this season.

David Moyes’ side have been less than convincing at Old Trafford this season, with teams seeming to relax more now that the iconic Sir Alex Ferguson has been replaced in the dugout. The Red Devils have improved recently, having won their last three fixtures and the Old Trafford fans will be hoping to see their side climb up the table before the New Year. A win against West Ham could see them climb to sixth if results go their way, however in the past the Hammers have proved tough to breakdown at the Theatre of Dreams, with Man United narrowly edging the last two fixtures 1-0.

Robin Van Persie will still be absent with his thigh injury, which means Danny Welbeck may start up top on his own, as the England international scored twice to help his side beat Aston Villa 3-0 last weekend.

Sam Allardyce will still lack firepower upfront for his claret and blues side, which could see Man United conceding little in this fixture.
