West Ham vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: 7 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: London Stadium (London).
Manchester United made a huge step towards locking in the top-four finish with a 1-0 victory over in-form Aston Villa last weekend, inflicting the maiden loss in ten games for the Lions on the occasion.
Bruno Fernandes confirmed his great spell of form with a goal at the death of the first half of the contest.
The Red Devils were generally a better team on the pitch and deserved a win, much like they did three days earlier when they allowed Spurs a late comeback in a 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Manchester United will continue their quest on Sunday evening when they visit the capital once again, this time for the clash against relegation-threatened West Ham.
The Hammers suffered consecutive defeats to the likes of Liverpool and Crystal Palace and are currently only four points above the red zone.
To make things more complicated for David Moyes and his troops, they have the UEFA Europa Conference League semifinal ties against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar on schedule in the next couple of weeks.
Moyes’ defensive line looked dreadful last Saturday when West Ham allowed four goals to the likes of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
West Ham vs Manchester United Head-to-head
- Manchester United are on a streak of three successive wins over the Hammers, two of which have come this season (1-0 in the league, 3-1 in the FA Cup).
- However, the Red Devils have managed to beat West Ham just 17 times in the previous 63 away clashes.
- Three of the previous four head to head meetings between these rivals have ended in a 1-0 scoreline.
West Ham vs Manchester United Prediction
West Ham’s defense looked dreadful in recent weeks. As much as they need points to avoid complications down in the relegation battle, we can hardly see them keeping hold on the Manchester United stars on Sunday.
The away win is the main pick at the 2.05 odds, while we also like the 2.50 odds for Marcus Rashford to shine against the leaky Hammers’ defense and score anytime at London Stadium.
