West Ham United are tasked with keeping Cristiano Ronaldo at bay as Manchester United come calling for a Premier League encounter on Sunday afternoon.

The Portugal superstar announced his return to England with a brace against Newcastle United weekend and followed it up with another goal against Young Boys in midweek.

But the mood in the Red Devils camp is not as rosy as it was, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat by the Swiss minnows in their opening Champions League game after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off.

West Ham have also been in action on the continent and David Moyes must carefully manage his squad after their trip to Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Irons have started the domestic season strongly with two wins and two draws to leave them two points behind leaders Manchester United, who are also unbeaten with three wins and one draw.
