Marc Skinner became only the second ever head coach of Manchester United when he replaced Casey Stoney in July 2021. 

The 38-year-old had plenty of previous experience within the women’s game and the WSL before taking on the role – having been involved with Birmingham City from 2006 until 2019. 

Skinner has taken charge of 24 matches for Manchester United, and currently has a win percentage of 54%. 

The Hammers have beaten Manchester United once in their previous four meetings, a 3-2 win at Rush Green Stadium back in December 2019. Two late free-kicks from Katharina Baunach turned the game on its head in a memorable win.
