Manchester United will be looking to build on their Europa League win last night when they take on West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Here is the team  I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea was rested for last night’s Europa League win over Feyenoord so Sergio Romero is expected to make way for the Spanish number on this weekend.

Defence: Chris Smalling is expected to once again miss out with an on-going toe injury while Eric Bailly is also out with a knee problem so Phil Jones should continue at centre-back following another solid display in midweek.

Daley Blind came in against Feyenoord but I think we might see Marcos Rojo recalled in at centre-back with Luke Shaw keeping his place at left-back and Antonio Valencia once again on the right side of defence.

Midfield: Michael Carrick has played two games in succession so we may see the 35-year-old given a breather against his former club with Ander Herrera coming back in to start alongside Paul Pogba after being rested last time out.

Attack: Wayne Rooney could have played his way back in to Mourinho’s starting eleven after an excellent performance against Feyenoord that saw him score and grab an assist during the 4-0 victory.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan also stood out upon his return to the starting eleven, however, given it was his first game in over two months, I think it would be a big ask for him to start again on Sunday.

Therefore, we could see Marcus Rashford come back in to the side and support Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
