Paul Scholes is suspended for Manchester United's game against West Ham
Paul Scholes will miss Manchester United's Barclays Premier League encounter with West Ham.
The veteran midfielder is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season at the weekend and his place goes to Anderson, who impressed as a second-half substitute against QPR. Antonio Valencia (hip) has an outside chance of being fit for the leaders, but fellow winger Nani remains sidelined with a hamstring problem. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are available after being unused substitutes against QPR, while David de Gea was also on the bench for the 3-1 win after a recent problem with his wisdom teeth. Midfielder Mark Noble is suspended for West Ham's trip to Old Trafford after accumulating five yellow cards. Left-back George McCartney is a doubt after suffering an ankle injury against Tottenham and midfielder Yossi Benayoun is still not available as he looks to overcome a thigh problem. Midfielder Jack Collison (knee) and forward Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) are also ruled out.
