Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Daniel James in his starting XI against West Ham United.

Thankfully his Norwegian boss, James has recovered from the knock and will be hoping to continue his early season form against the Hammers.

Elsewhere, Juan Mata starts in midfield along with James, Andreas Pereira, Scott McTominay, and Nemanja Matic as Paul Pogba remains out along with Anthony Martial.

For West Ham, Manuel Pellegrini has opted to pick Aaron Cresswell as the replacement for suspended Arthur Masuaku, while Pablo Fornals comes into the starting XI for Manuel Lanzini, who doesn’t make the bench either.
