With just one defeat in 16 and none on the road, Manchester United head to the Boleyn Ground to face a favoured foe of theirs.
West Ham have suffered 11 losses in 12 meetings with Louis van Gaal’s side, which renders the Reds an enticing proposition at even money here.
Those fancying the Hammers to snap their lengthy winless run against the 13-time Premier League champions can get paid out at 11/4, while it’s 9/4 that the contest ends all square, which, incidentally, was the outcome in the remaining game of the dozen renewals mentioned above.
There’s little debate about Man Utd being the best punt of the match-betting spread and those to open a new account at bwin.com today can invest their £30 free bet sign up bonus in the eventuality to land a £30 profit.
In addition to this medley of appealing prices, there is plenty of money to be made in the goalscorer markets too.
Of the raft of runners, the stats, as well as logic, say these three are the most likely to land.
Wayne Rooney to score first @ 11/2
He hasn’t bagged in seven starts since Boxing Day, but the Man Utd skipper tends to gorge on goals against West Ham.
Nine times in ten against the east enders saw Rooney ripple the onion bag, while he hit the opener in each of the previous two dust ups.
Robin van Persie to score last @ 9/2
These digits may seem a little short, but the Dutchman is another Man Utd man with a supreme record against this foe.
In five Premier League matches against West Ham, Van Persie has had six goals to celebrate.
Of these, four brought the game’s scoring to an end.
James Collins to score at any time @ 27/2
No Premier League club has scored more headers than West Ham’s ten this term.
Set pieces may represent their best chance of a goal here and Collins has previous of bagging against the Red Devils, notching a brace in a 2-2 FA Cup draw in 2013.
He registered in the same competition against Everton this term and represents the best value of potential Hammers net bulgers.
