Under-23s face Hammers live on MUTV

Manchester United Under-23s are on the road this Friday, facing West Ham United in a 19:00 GMT kick-off at Rush Green.

The journey south offers Neil Wood's in-form youngsters the chance to register a fourth successive win in Premier League 2, following the entertaining 4-2 triumph over Tottenham at the weekend.

Arnau Puigmal netted twice, with Shola Shoretire and Anthony Elanga also on the scoresheet against Spurs.

“We played some good football,” said lead coach Wood afterwards. “We're really pleased with the goals that we scored.”

Once again, Friday's match will be shown live on MUTV, with the Hammers the other side to gain promotion with the Reds last season.

“The lads enjoy it as well as they know when they're doing the right things,” added Wood. “They know when they're playing good football. They're just as disappointed as me to concede goals - we don't go out there to make mistakes but they happen.

“Our style of play is just trying to get them to have that attacking threat so they're willing to run forward and attack at speed and that's where it's coming out in games.”

West Ham v United in Premier League 2 is live on MUTV on Friday with kick-off at 19:00 GMT.
