Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make five changes for his side’s FA Cup showdown with West Ham on Tuesday night. The Red Devil
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make five changes for his side’s FA Cup showdown with West Ham on Tuesday night. The Red Devils go into the game seeking a return to winning ways after a 3-3 draw with Everton on Saturday. So Express Sport will now take a look at all the latest team news.
Solskjaer has admitted Dean Henderson ‘isn’t the most patient’.
“He’s not the most patient guy,” he said. “He wants to play every game because he knows he will perform well, so long may it continue, because he’s improved since he came [back] here [from loan at Sheffield United].
“He’s played well when he’s got the chance.
“For me, he’s developed his game. I know he’s not played as many games as he would’ve done last season. But every game when he plays and in training you see his improvement. He’s working hard on a couple of aspects that we’ve spoken about. And I’ve been impressed with his attitude and work rate.”
So with David De Gea making an error against Everton, Henderson should get his chance.

Attack: Greenwood, Martial, Rashford
Though United have seen Edinson Cavani shine in recent weeks, expect him to be on the bench against West Ham.
Solskjaer is likely to unleash Anthony Martial from the start instead, giving the France international a chance to get his goal tally up.
The goals have dried up for Mason Greenwood but the England international should still start, with Solskjaer praising him in his pre-match press conference.
And Marcus Rashford should complete their attack.
He was on target in the previous round, finding the net in the 3-2 victory over Liverpool under the lights at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer wants a trophy
Solskjaer admitted he was hoping to win a trophy with United this season, saying: “Well, of course a trophy is always what you’re aiming for.
“You want to win every single competition – FA Cup, Europa League, every game you play, the Premier League. And that’s the ultimate challenge and a test for a team: to go all the way.
“We’ve improved, we’ve had a plan in place, and I think the team is getting better and better. Last season’s semi-final was disappointing to lose that one of course, and you just want to go all the way ad you want to lift the trophy.
“That’s not the be all and end all, of course it isn’t; it’s the bread and butter of the Premier League that is also a measure of how good a team is. To get to a final, sometimes you’re lucky with the draw, but to win a final, then all the good teams have been beaten.
“So that’s the next step for us in the development of this team: to go all the way in a competition.”
