Showing 7:45PM, Wednesday 30th November: Manchester United V West Ham

Manchester United and West Ham United will meet again at Old Trafford after an entertaining 1-1 stalemate on Sunday. Emotions were high at Old Trafford on Sunday evening as the two teams shared the spoil in the Premier League week 13. United have their coach Mourinho sent to the stand after having a rift with the 4th official.

Jose Mourinho will be aiming for a much better performance from his side this time. A win in this game will put them through to the semifinals of the competition and that will no doubt make the fans happy.

The Hammers will be happy with Sunday result, but this time around they will need more than a draw to progress. Though a draw will give room for a rematch at London Stadium, but the two teams will prefer a single leg win in the game.

We already know that games between these two teams are always tough and entertaining just like the Sunday game. Each of the two teams have won just once in their previous 6 games, but have drawn 4 times. The record at Old Trafford have been great for Red Devils with 40 wins, 8 draws and 8 defeats.

Generally, United have won 54 games over Hammers, they have drawn 27 games and lost 32.


Having played together on Sunday, the two teams may give in to fatigue. However, the pressure is more on Jose Mourinho with Red Devils having made their worst start to the season since 1990/91. Manchester United have more experience in their team and should come out winners in this one not minding their weekend draw.

We expect the Red Devils to finally lift their game in front of the home fans. However, there is plenty of pressure on both manager and players alike. West Ham are a smart enough team and will be looking to make full use of the situation. So this game will be pretty close to call and as a result it will be a good option to back West Ham to restrict a defeat by not more than 1 goal.
