West Ham in line to break club record for Man United clash

West Ham welcome Manchester United to the Boleyn ground later today, as the pair bring down the curtain on the weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

Ahead of the Hammers clash with the Red Devils, the Daily Mail are reporting that 16-year-old Reece Oxford could be set to make his West Ham debut against the former Premier League champions.

The youngster is expected to maintain his place in Sam Allardyce’s matchday squad, however, with doubts over all three of the Hammers’ main centre-backs – James Tomkins, Winston Reid and James Collins – as well as Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson, Oxford could well become the youngest player to ever turn out for Premier League club.

Oxford had previously been linked with fellow Premier League outfits Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal before committing his future to the east London-based club earlier last month. 

A win for Big Sam’s team will see them close the gap on Louis van Gaal’s side to just four points.
