Manchester United could turn to youth in attack vs. West Ham

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop assesses the state of Man United as they receive criticism from supporters and pundits.

Slaven Bilic believes Manchester United play much different under Louis van Gaal than they did under Sir Alex Ferguson. When Manchester United host West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday, one of the division's more hesitant attacks — Louis van Gaal's side have scored just 20 goals in 14 games — will face one of its more obliging defences — the Hammers have conceded 21.
The key news for the hosts is that Wayne Rooney will be absent with an ankle injury, which could offer Memphis Depay another opportunity to start alongside Anthony Martial. It is the type of chance that the Dutchman really must seize.
