West Ham United vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: London Stadium, London.
Manchester United fell 1-0 away at Brighton on Friday, but they are still millimetres away from booking the second-place finish following Liverpool’s and Tottenham’s slip-ups at the weekend. The Red Devils need a single point from last two fixtures with West Ham United and Watford in order to secure the runners-up position.
The trip to the capital and the clash with the Hammers will be the tougher of two remaining outings for Jose Mourinho and his men given West Ham United will head into the game high on confidence after clinching a comfortable 0-2 victory over Leicester City at Ling Power.
The win helped David Moyes and his men secure the new Premier League campaign as they went five points clear off the danger zone. The Hammers thus instilled some confidence into them after suffering back-to-back demolishing defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City.

Manchester United controlled this match-up both over the history and in the most recent head to head ties with the Hammers.
The Reds Devils notched an impressive ten-goal tally in three straight wins over West Ham, including this term’s 4-0 thumping at Old Trafford.
Nonetheless, the Red Devils did have troubles in away fixtures with West ham who won 24 and lost 15 of 58 home meetings with Man Utd.
West Ham United vs Manchester United: Prediction
Jose Mourinho is still without his main talisman Romelu Lukaku who is ruled out with ankle injury, but Alexis Sanchez could make the return to the starting lineup after skipping the mentioned defeat to Brighton away at The AMEX. The Chilean winger has been the standout performer for United recently and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick at the 2.50 odds here.
We have reasons to believe that Man Utd will score at least once here knowing they bagged ten in last three H2H ties with West Ham as well as that the Hammers conceded eight in back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Man City.
On the other hand, Moyes’ troops should also be on the scoreline knowing they only lost two of last eight home outings in all competitions. They will come into the game in high spirits following the win at King Power Stadium.
