West Ham host Manchester United to kick off this weekend’s Premier League action which starts at 12:30pm local time on Saturday. Everything is looking a lot brighter for the Hammers after recent results, whereas it’s a clear contrast at Manchester United as there seems to be some serious unrest within the Old Trafford camp.

Home Team: West Ham

west ham unitedAfter losing their first four matches, West Ham have managed to change their fortunes in recent weeks. An away victory at Everton followed by a resolute home performance against Chelsea has lifted spirits at West Ham as they have shot up from 20th to 17th, out of the relegation places.

Not only that, but they have progressed to the Carabao Cup fourth round after hitting Macclesfield for 8, in emphatic 8-0 victory. With due respect to Macclesfield, West Ham will expect a far tougher test on Saturday, but as they held Chelsea one week ago, they’ll feel they will have the perfect chance to get three points against Manchester United and inflict further misery on the Jose Mourinho and his players.

Away Team: Manchester United

manchester united betting on footballThe season has gone from bad to worse to unacceptable for Manchester United and their fans. Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup exit was a defeat too many, and it came after the news that Jose Mourinho has removed Paul Pogba from being the vice-captain. It appears it all has gone terribly for the Jose Mourinho, as there is unrest amongst his players at the club.

Manchester United have not won in their previous three home matches, so it may be a welcome change that they are playing away this weekend, as they have won their last three away games. Manchester United cannot afford to drop points if they want to be considered title challengers, but the list of people thinking that’s a possibility is shrinking by the minute.

Can Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Martial and co return to decent form to save their manager?

Head to Head

West Ham have only won one Premier League match against Manchester United in the last 11 years, which was back in 2016. It was the last football match to be played at Upton Park, as West Ham defeated Manchester United to secure European football themselves, and prevent their opponents from reaching the Champions League.

It would prove to be a costly defeat for Louis van Gaal, as he was sacked following that season, but it would also be the last time that West Ham managed to beat Manchester United. In the most recent five matches, in all competitions, Manchester United have won 3 matches, and drawing twice. In this particular fixture last season, it was a drub end-of-the-season affair as it finished 0-0.

West Ham vs Manchester United Predictions and Betting Tips

West Ham are at 16/5 to get the victory, with Manchester United as slight favourites at 17/20. A draw, just as it was last season, is priced at 13/5. It seems what’s happening at Manchester United now is similar to what happened under David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal, before they were sacked.

The performances are not improving and you wouldn’t have much confidence in betting on them becoming victorious in this encounter. Therefore, I would tip a home win here, so 2-0 at 22/1 looks very tasty to me. Javier ‘Chicarito’ Hernandez is at 6/1 to score first against his old team, but I would back his striker Marko Arnautovic to get the first goal at the same odds, 6/1.

If you had to back a United striker, you would put money on Romelu Lukaku at 10/3 who is favourite. His performances have been disappointing of late, but he has still managed to put the ball in the net whereas his other teammates have struggled to do so in recent weeks.
