Prediction: West Ham United vs Manchester United

Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw

Best Odds: 11/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

West Ham United and Manchester United will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match at the London Stadium is slated to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Saturday.

West Ham United

West Ham are in great form at the moment and all head into the match against United high on confidence. David Moyes’s side have won their past three Premier League matches, getting the better of Fulham 1-0 at the London Stadium, winning by a solitary goal at Sheffield United and then beating Aston Villa 2-1 at home on Monday evening.

The Hammers are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 10 matches, just a point behind fourth-placed Leicester City. While it is hard to see Moyes’s team challenge for the Champions League places this season, the fans will hope that the team will avoid a relegation battle they were mired in during the 2019-20 season.

Team news:

Michail Antonio played against Villa after recovering from a hamstring injury, and the former Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest star is likely to start against United.

Manchester United

Manchester United have been rather inconsistent so far this season, and them winning matches depend on which team will turn up. The Red Devils will head into the match against West Ham on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford in the Champions League, a result which has cast doubt on their chances of progressing to the knockout rounds of Europe’s premier club competition.

United, though, have won their last two Premier League matches and are very much in the running for the Champions League places. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ninth in the league table at the moment with 16 points from nine matches, two points behind fourth-placed Leicester.

Team news:

Defender Axel Tuanzebe is available for United after serving his one-match ban, but forward Marcus Rashford is doubtful with a shoulder injury. David De Gea is also doubtful after suffering a knock against Southampton last weekend.

Key Factors to Consider

  • West Ham have scored 17 goals in 10 Premier League matches.
  • Manchester United have scored 16 goals in nine Premier League matches.
  • West Ham have conceded 11 goals in 10 Premier League games.
  • Manchester United have conceded 16 goals in nine Premier League games.
  • West Ham beat Manchester United 2-0 at the London Stadium last season.

Conclusion

West Ham will fancy their chances of picking up all three points against United, but the Red Devils do have a very team and should pick up a point from the encounter in London.

Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw
