Manchester United take on West Ham United tomorrow as they go in search of their first home Premier League victory since November 10. 

The Red Devils, who have lost back-to-back home games in the league, will be hoping star striker Wayne Rooney is declared fit for the game against the Hammers. 

Both teams will come into the game high on confidence after securing a place in the Capital One Cup semi-finals in midweek. 

David Moyes' side picked up a win at Stoke City, whilst West Ham impressively beat London rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane. 

Danny Welbeck looks set to get the nod up-front and could play alongside Rooney if he's passed fit for the Red Devils. If Rooney doesn't make it, then he may well be replaced by Javier Hernandez or Shinji Kagawa. 

In midfield, Moyes is likely to go with Welsh veteran Ryan Giggs alongside Tom Cleverley who put in an impressive performance at Villa Park last weekend. 

Antonio Valencia, who also impressed against Aston Villa, should start on the right with Moyes potentially opting for Ashley Young on the wide left position. Young scored a wonder goal in United's win at Stoke this week and will go into this weekend's clash full of confidence. 

It's expected that Rafael and Patrice Evra will take the wing-back positions and, at the heart of United's defence, Jonny Evans and Phil Jones look set to start after recent impressive performances. 

The Red Devils have picked up three clean sheets on the bounce and will be hoping for another one against Sam Allardyce's side. 

Manchester United can cut the gap at the top this weekend and will be desperate for all three points tomorrow. 

Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Cleverley, Giggs, Young, Rooney, Welbeck
