What Trueform says for West Ham vs Man Utd
West Ham entertain Manchester United on the back of two encouraging Premier League results and are fancied to get something out of this game too.
The Red Devils won their last couple of top-flight away fixtures but remain relatively unconvincing this term after being held to a draw by Wolves at Old Trafford.
Punters can get 21/20 for the Hammers to avoid defeat here and that looks a rock-solid West Ham vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham’s goalless draw with Chelsea at London Stadium wasn’t pretty but still helped them build on a fine 3-1 triumph at Everton.
The Blues had won their previous five games but were fortunate to escape with a point after Andriy Yarmolenko missed a golden chance with a late header.
Teenage midfielder Declan Rice said: “Without a doubt we could have had three points, with the chances we missed in the first half and obviously Yarmolenko’s header at the end.
“But other than that I thought we were excellent. We all knew our jobs and we all gave 100 per cent.”
Rice reported that “everyone was still buzzing” from the Everton win and the Hammers have clearly put an opening run of four straight defeats behind them.
Last West Ham EPL line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Diop, Masuaku, Felipe Anderson, Obiang, Noble, Antonio, Rice, Yarmolenko.
Marko Arnautovic returns for West Ham after a knee injury forced him to sit out the draw with Chelsea, but Javier Hernandez misses out against his former club due to illness.
Carlos Sanchez suffered a knee injury against Macclesfield in midweek and joins Jack Wilshere, Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid in the treatment room.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Manchester United lost more ground on the early Premier League pacesetters when only sharing the spoils with Wolves on home turf.
A fine strike from Joao Moutinho in the 53rd minute cancelled out Fred’s first-half opener.
United delivered another disjointed display and only some vital interventions from the formidable David de Gea spared them a damaging defeat.
Jose Mourinho said: “I think it’s a mental situation, an attitude. One team was coming to play the game of their lives, and another one was too relaxed.”
The Red Devils had previously shown plenty of focus on the road, winning at Burnley and Watford in this competition before brushing aside Champions League opponents Young Boys in Switzerland.
Mourinho’s men do generally seem to lack a killer instinct, though, preferring to sit back when in front, rather than going for the jugular.
Let’s finish off our West Ham vs Man Utd betting tips by taking 14/1 for the visitors to lead at half-time and then the Hammers to fight back for a draw.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Valencia, Pogba, Lingard, Fred, Fellaini, Sanchez, Lukaku.
Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero are the only absentees for United, with Paul Pogba due to be among the starters, while Marcus Rashford returns from a domestic ban.
