Manchester United squad vs West Ham revealed as Erik ten Hag provides surprise inclusion



| Last Updated:


Manchester United’s travelling squad have been spotted ahead of their Premier League fixture against West Ham on Saturday.

The Reds will be looking to get back to winning ways after three games without a victory. Their trip to the London Stadium will provide another tough challenge, however.

David Moyes’ side have started the season well and sit just a point behind United in the table. A loss for Erik ten Hag’s side would mean they are overtaken in the league standings by The Hammers.

Ten Hag has been boosted by the return of Christian Eriksen into the squad after he was injured before the latest international break.

The Danish midfielder was spotted by photographers as United prepared to travel to London alongside his United teammates.

Whilst not all squad members were pictured, interestingly, Donny van de Beek travelled with the side for the game despite closing in on a move to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Dutch midfielder has completed a medical, and the clubs have agreed on a deal for Van de Beek to move on a loan until the end of the season, with an option to buy available in the summer.

Van de Beek’s inclusion in the squad likely means that popular academy talent Dan Gore is not involved, which some would not be completely happy with.

Otherwise, the squad is looking as expected, considering injuries. Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Højlund are involved, as well as Jonny Evans, with the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof unavailable.

However, Ten Hag has also mentioned that certain players have been ill in the week leading to the game and could miss out. They could be amongst the players not spotted yet.

According to the Manchester Evening News, there have been 14 confirmed squad members for the clash, whilst the other players who could be involved have also been named below.

Players confirmed in travelling squad: Onana, Bayindir, Wan-Bissaka, Reguilon, Evans, Amrabat, Eriksen, McTominay, Van de Beek, Pellistri, Garnacho, Antony, Rashford, Hojlund.

Players not spotted but could still be part of the squad: Tom Heaton, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Bruno Fernandes, Amad, Anthony Martial.
