Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made wholesale changes to his starting lineup for the must-win Premier League clash with West Ham United.

The 55-year-old has been subjected to severe criticisms in the aftermath of recent disappointing results and the Portuguese tactician has reacted by making four changes to his starting lineup from the last league game.

The quartet of Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Ashley Young and Anthony Martial have been drafted into the team at the expense of Fred, Jesse Lingard, Antonio Valencia and Alexis Sanchez.

Serbian international Matic returns to the starting XI and he could be crucial after serving a one-game ban for the Wolves game because of his dismissal in the penultimate league clash away to London side Watford.

Out of the four players dropped from the starting lineup, only Brazilian midfielder Fred makes the bench while Valencia, Sanchez and Lingard didn’t make the squad for the game.

West Ham XI: Lukasz Fabianski; Pablo Zabaleta, Fabian Balbuena, Issa Diop, Arthur Masuaku; Declan Rice, Mark Noble, Pedro Obiang; Andriy Yarmolenko, Marko Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson.

Manchester United XI: David De Gea; Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba; Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku.
