West Ham vs Manchester United betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

West Ham vs Manchester United prediction: West Ham 1-2 Manchester United

Man United will be looking to make it three wins on the spin and are still in search of their first away win of the season.

West Ham are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions.

United have scored exactly one goal in each of their last five matches but they have scored more Premier League goals against West Ham than any other side has in the competition (94).

West Ham vs Manchester United Premier League match preview

Matchweek 6 in the Premier League sees West Ham host Manchester United at the London Stadium on Sunday.

West Ham’s three-match winning streak was halted last weekend as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa. The Hammers finished the match with 10 men.

The draw saw West Ham move down to 8th position in the table, but they’re level on 8 points with Spurs, United, Chelsea and Arsenal after five matches.

United beat Leicester 1-0 at Old Trafford last weekend to move into the top four. Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game early on from the penalty spot.

The Red Devils were also in midweek Europa League action, hosting Kazakh champions Astana on Thursday night. A very young United side won 1-0 thanks to a second-half winner from Mason Greenwood.

West Ham won last season’s corresponding fixture 3-1, Felipe Anderson and the now-departed Marko Arnautovic scored for the home side. Marcus Rashford scored for United while defender Victor Lindelof scored an own goal.

United were victorious in the side’s most recent meeting, beating West Ham 2-1 at Old Trafford in April, thanks to a Paul Pogba brace.

Here’s a stat for you: Manuel Pellegrini could become the first manager to beat four different Manchester United managers in the Premier League.

West Ham team news vs Manchester United

Having fielded the same starting eleven in three consecutive Premier League matches, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will be forced to make a change on Sunday.

Arthur Masuaku will serve a one-match suspension after being harshly sent off at Villa Park. Either Pablo Zabaleta or Sam Byram will deputise at left-back. Byram appears to be out of favour with Pellegrini so Zabaleta could get the nod, despite him being a natural right-back.

Pablo Fornals, Albian Ajeti, Jack Wilshere and Robert Snodgrass are all expected to start from the bench.

Winston Reid and Michail Antonio are long-term absentees.

Manchester United team news vs West Ham

United’s midweek fixture should have little influence on Sunday as Ole Gunner Solskjaer made nine changes to the team that beat Leicester – only Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic survived.

Scott McTominay was an unused substitute on Thursday and should start in midfield alongside Andreas Pereira – who was given the night off. Goalkeeper David De Gea was also rested and will return to goal.

Solskjaer will be hoping to have Paul Pogba available for selection after missing United’s last two matches with an ankle injury. The World Cup winner has returned to training.

Daniel James was not risked and could return to the side after picking up a knock against Leicester. Anthony Martial should “be ready” following a thigh injury and could take his place on the bench.

Saturday will come too soon for Luke Shaw, so one of Marcus Rojo or Ashley Young will start at left-back.

Despite scoring the only goal of the game, 17-year-old Mason Greenwood is unlikely to keep his place in the side, but he could feature from the bench.

Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are long-term absentees.
