Read WEst Ham’s Verdict
West Ham will be hoping that Lanzini can return to fitness quickly, but this hands a huge opportunity to one of the Hammers’ summer signings.
Pablo Fornals has been given a big opportunity to impress, and Hammers fans will be hoping he can do the business at Old Trafford.
Hopefully Lanzini can return fast though, as he is a key member of the squad.
