United need to be back in Champions League - Ole

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "Last time [April's 2-1 home win over West Ham] we were lucky to beat them and it will be a good test".

How will Man United lineup without Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial against West Ham on Sunday.

The unavailability of Martial (and potentially James) opens up space for Mason Greenwood, who scored a wonderful first senior goal against Astana, to have a crack at West Ham's back four.

"More than when is the best time to play against United, I think we are in a good moment so if we need to play against these big teams now we must demonstrate that we are able to play exactly the same way they do".

The Welsh winger missed the Europa League victory over Astana on Thursday as he rested ahead of the Premier League clash with the Hammers.

"[Luke] won't be ready", the manager said when quizzed about the availability of Pogba, Martial and Shaw.

Daniel James, on the other hand, is a minor doubt for the game, with Solskjaer noting that he was "hopeful" of the youngster returning from a knock picked up against Leicester. He's not trained the last few days.

United now sit fourth in the Premier League table, having picked up eight points from a possible 15.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News, Diop said: "We did a very good game, winning 3-1 but for me it was not flawless because we conceded a goal so I wasn't very happy".

"I never set a target for our team before the season".

We'll have two games from London live and exclusive, starting over in the east of the city as West Ham host Manchester United with coverage starting on Sky Sports Premier League at 1pm and kick-off at 2pm.

"I think we should've won at Southampton", he added. "You've got to block out the mental part and play as you would in the park".
