Robin Van Persie’s memorable hat-trick ensured an emphatic win for Manchester United as David Moyes’ side brushed past Greek outfit Olympiacos on Wednesday night. The Red Devils now turn their attention to the Premier League where they will take on West Ham United in Saturday’s late kickoff.
Sam Allardyce’s men currently stand twelfth in the table and will be looking to hurl United yet another despair in their already stuttering season. Can Moyes build from the huge win in the Champions League to muster up full three points? If so, what would be their strongest possible eleven? We here at Soccersouls have the answer for our readers.
David De Gea was the unsung hero for United in midweek as his double save kept the Red Devils in the match when the score was still 1-0. The Spaniard will now look to muster up another clean sheet in the league against a team that has blown hot and cold this campaign. United should win, given their confidence and it won’t be a surprise if De Gea has a shutout. However, he will be tested by the West Ham frontline and United’s number one will be more than aware of the significant threat from the home side.
