Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to name a strong side for the trip to West Ham United tonight (Wednesday).

With the title just a few wins away for the Red Devils, goalkeeper David De Gea will again start in-goal at Upton Park.

In defence, full-back Rafael is set to return on the right, whilst Patrice Evra has been in good form on the left flank. In central defence, Jonny Evans is in-line for a recall, with Rio Ferdinand alongside the Northern Irishman against his old club.

Ferguson has plenty of options in midfield, and is likely to go for a 4-4-2 formation, with Luis Nani on one flank and Danny Welbeck operating on the other. Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley are the likely combination in the centre.

Up-front, the Manchester United manager has no reason to rest Robin Van Persie or Wayne Rooney, and both will expect to start for the Old Trafford outfit.

 

Manchester United predicted line-up v West Ham:

David De Gea; Rafael, Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra; Luis Nani, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck; Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney.
