PREVIEW: Manchester United v West Ham United

Manchester United will walk out at Old Trafford for the first time tomorrow when they take on West Ham United in a Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture.

Casey Stoney’s side have been on a fascinating journey since their reformation as full-time side in summer 2018 and their latest milestone sees them finally handed the opportunity to stage a home game at ‘The Theatre of Dreams’.

Manchester United go into their latest fixture on the back of a run of three defeats in their last four matches. With their advantage in the race for third place having been surrendered to Arsenal, The Red Devils simply cannot slip up against the struggling Hammers.

United boss Stoney is not thought to have any new injury concerns to contend with ahead of her side’s latest fixture. Forward Alessia Russo has suffered an injury setback which has put her return back a few weeks while United remain without long term absentees Tobin Heath, Leah Galton and Ivana Fuso.

West Ham United make the long trip to the North West having ended their losing run with a 2-2 draw against Birmingham City last time out. Manager Olli Harder remains without Mackenzie Arnold, Lois Joel and Adriana Leon who are all out for the foreseeable future. Leanne Kiernan is thought to be nearing fitness, although she may not be involved this weekend.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Manchester United and West Ham United is scheduled to kick-off at 11.30am tomorrow and will be available for fans to watch live on the FA Player.
