Man Utd will look to get back to winning ways when they take on West Ham at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.  Here is the side I think van Gaal will pick:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea is certain to start between the sticks once again this weekend.

Defence: Marcos Rojo is still out with a shoulder injury while Phil Jones is expected to remain on the sidelines with a foot problem. Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw are long-term absentees.

Therefore, Paddy McNair could keep his place alongside Chris Smalling at the back with Daley Blind at left-back while Ashley Young could come in for Matteo Darmian at right-back.

Midfield: Morgan Schneiderlin is likely to get a recall to the starting eleven alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger  after being left out for last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Leicester with Michael Carrick the man expected to make way.

Attack: Wayne Rooney was forced off at the King Power with a knock but the striker is expected to be passed fit to start in attack behind Anthony Martial with Ander Herrera set to once again miss out with a hamstring problem.

Memphis Depay could get a recall with Jesse Lingard struggling with a hamstring injury while Juan Mata should keep his place on the right.

Here is how we think United will line-up:

    i think man utd should give ashley young the attacking role on the left wing instead of deffensive role.
