It’s back.

After a three month lay-off, Premier League football has returned to our lives and it’s been a very exciting return this weekend, but it won’t be complete until the Hammers take to the pitch.

West Ham travel to Old Trafford on the opening weekend to take on a new-look Manchester United side bolstered by several big-money additions.

Slaven Bilic will be without a number of his key performers for this clash as the likes of Andy Carroll and Cheikhou Kouyate are yet to return to first-team training as they continue their recoveries from their respective injuries.

Michail Antonio played in a U23 game last night but won’t feature tomorrow, while the club’s newest signing Sead Haksabanovic will not be involved either.

Diafra Sakho has travelled and could be named in the matchday squad.

Here is our first predicted XI of the new season.
