Manchester United vs West Ham Live Stream: EFL Cup
Manchester United and West Ham face off in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday, after meeting in Premier League action last weekend. The Red Devils were 2-1 winners over the weekend and are the favorites here, despite the fact that they are anticipated to deploy a large number of reserve players. United is one of the favorites to win the second-tier event, which culminates on February 22 with the final.
Here are the stories, as well as information on how to watch the match:
Manchester United: This is an excellent opportunity to provide some playing time to the less-used players, but don't expect much of a drop-off. If Edinson Cavani starts and others like Jesse Lingard get minutes, United shouldn't have an issue if the Hammers shuffle their team in the same way. However, if West Ham pitches their strongest XI, expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to have to rely on some key players from his bench to get the job done.
West Ham: Michail Antonio returns, which will be a huge help if he plays. The Hammers undoubtedly deserved a point in their match against United on Sunday and will seek vengeance in this competition, which is likely to be the Hammers' greatest opportunity of winning a trophy. Expect David Moyes to field a large number of his finest players, knowing that his squad will likely fall short in a depth war.
