Manchester United are taking on West Ham United tonight in the Premier League as both teams aim to enhance their case for a Champions League berth. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell to third in the table this afternoon following Leicester City’s win over Sheffield United, but can reassert their position in the top two with victory here. However, West Ham are only six points behind their hosts with a game in hand, so an away win tonight would really shake up the race for Europe.

Manchester United come into the game on the back of an impressive performance in the Manchester derby last weekend, where they ran out 2-0 victors. But a disappointing 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the Europa League in midweek stuttered their momentum slightly, when a late away goal took away victory. The Hammers meanwhile beat Leeds 2-0 last time out and have three wins in their past four games with their only slip-up coming against Manchester City.

Follow all the latest updates from the game below, after the conclusion of the North London derby.

West Ham are winless in their last 12 Premier League away games against Manchester United, with three draws and nine losses, since a 1-0 victory on the final day of the 2006/07 campaign.

David Moyes’ seven wins at Old Trafford all come during his tenure as Manchester United boss, he’s never won here as a visiting manager.
