The fact that West Ham stands as the slight favorite here is a perfect intro for the opening game of the Premiership’s program this Saturday. The Hammers and the Red Devils sit one next to another in the standings, United having a point more than their rivals. This is the battle for a place on the international stage next year, and points here are extremely important.

West Ham vs. Manchester United Preview

West Ham

Two wins in a row are good for West Ham, who had one nasty loss two weeks ago against Fulham at Craven, 5-0. Defeating Freiburg and Wolves by a combined difference of 5-0, that is, posting two clean sheets as well, is an excellent morale booster. 

The Hammers are excellent at home this year, and over the past ten games at the London Stadium, we’ve seen them record seven victories, two draws, and one defeat.

For the moment, West Ham rides a six-game defeatless streak at home, during which we’ve seen them triumph on five occasions. The difference between the performances and the results West Ham posts at home and on the road is impressive.

Manchester United

The Red Devils survived Liverpool, playing without goals at Anfield, but still didn’t manage to win even after three matches. To make it even worse, United couldn’t score during those 270 minutes, suffering an elimination from the UEFA Champions League as well. 

Apart from a win in the game against Chelsea, the Red Devils didn’t have any success over the previous six of their appearances – three losses and two ties along with that victory. Still, somehow, Erik Ten Hag survives on the bench.

United’s games away from home are pale and unconvincing. Also, the team from Old Trafford oscillates a lot, and one week, they defeat Everton at Goodison, but next, we see them lose to FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League.

West Ham vs. Manchester United Head to Head

During the 22/23 season, these two units met three times. United had two wins, one in the Premiership, 1-0, and then in the FA Cup, 3-1. On the other side, West Ham triumphed at home, 1-0.

West Ham vs. Manchester United Prediction

United will come to defend, using the same recipe as against Liverpool. After analyzing the entire situation, we decided to bet on over 2.5 goals. The Hammers are going to be extremely aggressive and offensive-minded, probably more than Liverpool. Also, seeing United without a goal scored in four consecutive meetings would be a surprise, and them posting back-to-back clean sheets would be an even greater shock.

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
