Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury concerns heading into Manchester United’s Premier League opener against West Ham at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo remain out as they continue to recover from long-term injuries sustained last season.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones missed Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid through suspension, but their continental suspension does not impact domestic matches.


West Ham expect defender Aaron Cresswell to be available for today’s clash.

Captain Mark Noble has shaken off a minor toe problem which saw the midfielder miss a couple of day’s training, but Michail Antonio will not be involved as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Striker Javier Hernandez could feature against his old club, while fellow summer signings Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and teenager Sead Haksabanovic could also make their Hammers debut.

Forward Andy Carroll (groin), Diafra Sakho (back), midfielder Manuel Lanzini and Cheikhou Kouyate (both knee) all continue their rehabilitation.


Manchester United squad: De Gea, Romero, J Pereira, Valencia, Darmian, Blind, Jones, Bailly, Smalling, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Matic, Carrick, Fellaini, Herrera, McTominay, Pogba, Lingard, Mkhitaryan, Mata, A Pereira, Martial, Rashford, Lukaku.

West Ham squad: Hart, Cresswell, Fonte, Reid, Zabaleta, Fernandes, Noble, Arnautovic, Snodgrass, Ayew, Hernandez, Adrian, Ogbonna, Collins, Feghouli, Byram, Masuaku, Haksabanovic.

The teams will be announced at 3pm for the 4pm kick off.
