A cup run to Wembley would provide the perfect tonic to West Ham’s league struggles, but Jose Mourinho’s men are likely to be in an unforgiving mood after drawing their fourth home league game in a row – ensuring their worst league start since 1990. The home fans will be demanding a victory in this one.
Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan may start for United after being left on the bench on Sunday, while Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are likely to be restored to the squad having missed out altogether. Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are both suspended, with Michael Carrick’s return to training a well-timed midfield boost for Mourinho.
Diafra Sakho started and scored at Old Trafford on Sunday, but departed with a potential calf problem during the second half. Bilic may therefore play Simone Zaza rather than gamble with Andy Carroll still sidelined with a knee injury, especially with Arsenal up next in the league. Turkish winger Gokhan Tore missed the last match with a thigh strain, but could recover in time for Wednesday.
