Manchester United head to West Ham for the last ever FA Cup game at Upton Park and should be dreading the trip.
The Red Devils have played in London four times this season and are yet to win in the city, showing why the Hammers should be backed for a win at 8/5.
League visits to Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Chelsea and Crystal Palace have seen Louis van Gaal’s men pick up just two points, while this is their first cup game in the Big Smoke this term.
Their most recent trip was to White Hart Lane, where they showed in more ways than one that they don’t like a visit to London.
United arrived to the ground late, delaying kick-off, before being thoroughly outperformed by a rampant Spurs side that went on to win 3-0.
That was the 13-time Premier League Champions second loss by such a scoreline in the capital, with Arsenal vanquishing them earlier in the campaign.
To make matters worse, they’ve only managed to score once in these four trip, courtesy of Jesse Lingard’s strike in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea
Crystal Palace were able to shut United out at Selhurst Park and that, coupled with the romps by Tottenham and Arsenal, shows that there is no south or north bias, the Mancunians struggle all over the city.
The likelihood of them curing their inability to score in London is further decreased when you look at their recent form as a whole.
Across all competitions, the Red Devils have only managed to rack up five goals in their last eight outings.
Conversely, Slaven Bilic’s men have found the net 11 times in their last five matches alone.
Therefore, it would be sensible to back West Ham to win to nil at 31/10 as the guests are struggling to locate their scoring boots at present and rarely bring them with them to London anyway.
