Sir Alex Ferguson was a manager defined by his ability to manage change. Although he occupied the head role at the same club for 27 years, he effectively built and managed three separate teams: the side which won the 1992/93 Premier League title, the 1999 treble-winning squad, and the European Cup winning side from 2008. Indeed, Ferguson’s greatest quality was his ability to succeed, dismantle, rebuild and then – against all odds –succeed again.

If previous meetings between Manchester United and West Ham are any indication, there should be plenty of goals put away on Saturday. The two clubs have often turned on the entertainment with scorelines of 5-3 at Upton Park and 6-0 at Old Trafford but the 7-1 on the first April Fools day of the ‘noughties’ stands out as the biggest defeat the Hammers ever suffered at the hands of United. One of the highlights was Paul Scholes’ first hat trick for the club but a young Rio Ferdinand lining up in the West Ham defence must have wondered what hit him. Perhaps the biggest sympathy must go to Hammers goalkeeper Craig Forrest who was on the receiving end of the heaviest Premiership defeat in history when Ipswich went down 9-0 to United five years earlier.
