Manchester United vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have ensured themselves at least a qualifying spot to the Europa League. However, for the prestigious club, anything other than a CL ticket would be an underachievement. They need to secure four more points from the remaining two games to mathematically seal a CL entry.
The fact that they were eliminated from the FA Cup, and that too by Chelsea, should fire them forward to deliver a top-four finish at any cost.
Meanwhile, the Hammers need one more point from the last two games to officially extend their stay in the PL for one more season. They have made the most of their previous two easier fixtures, which helped them a great deal to build a buffer of points over the relegation cut-off.
Considering the determination of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to make the Champions League, their recent form, and their h2h superiority over this opponent – expect a Manchester United win this Wednesday.
Manchester United vs West Ham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Devils had recorded 17 of the preceding 21 wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in six of the former ten fixtures.
- They had lost the reverse fixture 2-0 on the road.
- It’s been 13 years since the hosts have lost at this venue.
- In fact, the home team have won 23 of the last 29 encounters at this stadium.
Manchester United vs West Ham: Prediction
Solskjaer’s men had recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day in the league, against Crystal Palace. In the meantime, David Moyes’s men registered a 3-1 victory at home against Watford.
However, as things stand, the Devils have the upper hand. They were unbeaten in 19 of their last 20 overall matches, and are on an unbeaten run of seven games at home, where six were wins.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in seven of their preceding eight road trips, and of these six were losses. Importantly, their sole win in the process had come against Norwich – the worst team in the competition (who also have been relegated by now).
In addition, Solskjaer’s men have a phenomenal h2h record at this stadium. In fact, they had won 23 of the last 29 such clashes at this stadium over the years.
Likely, expect a dominating win by Manchester United this Wednesday.
