Manchester United – Red Devils on a high from derby triumph?

There should be a spring in the step of Manchester United (W15 D9 L4) following their outstanding performance and result in last Sunday’s Manchester derby. A Bruno Fernandes penalty – his 12th goal from the spot since joining in February 2020 – and a rare goal from full-back Luke Shaw sealing a deserved 2-0 win over Man City, whose 28-game unbeaten run in all competitions was ended in emphatic terms.

Now, after a third successive away win at their neighbours, United return to Old Trafford where their record is less spectacular. All four of their league defeats this term have come when playing at home. However, since a shock 2-1 defeat here to Sheffield United in January, the Red Devils have put three goals past Everton (3-3) and Newcastle (3-1) while also smashing nine without reply past hapless Southampton.

However, Thursday’s Europa League outing was a disappointing follow up to their derby heroics, conceding a late away goal to draw 1-1 with AC Milan. Harry Maguire featured for the full 90 minutes, as did Scott McTominay. Meanwhile Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial weren’t handed breathers until the second half. Marcus Rashford missed out altogether and is rated doubtful here.


Craig Dawson (West Ham) To Score



West Ham – Another positive performance in Manchester?

Two points off the top-four with a game in hand on those currently above them. It is understandable West Ham (W14 D6 L7) fans are beginning to believe this season could be the one which sees them secure Champions League for the first time in the club’s history. A positive result at Old Trafford, where manager David Moyes endured a turbulent spell as Man Utd manager in 2013-14, would be a signal of their intent.

The Hammers arrive in Manchester in sparkling form as well, winning four and losing one of their past six league matches. That sole defeat did come in Manchester, in a 2-1 scoreline away to Man City, but they were far from disgraced. West Ham had their moments and broke through the league’s strongest defence with a smart move. It remains their only defeat on the road since Christmas (W3 D2 L1 thereafter).

Last time out, goals from Jesse Lingard and Craig Dawson – two players brought in on loan deals in the recent window – sealed a 2-0 win at home to Leeds. The former has four goals in six appearances since arriving from Man Utd, but will be ineligible to face his parent club. The latter is available, however, and is now the highest scoring Premier League defender in all competitions this season, on four.

Manchester United Vs West Ham Betting Advice

The last three occasions Manchester United faced London sides they were held to goalless draws, bringing their record in such fixtures for this season to two wins, four draws and three defeats (D1 L3 at Old Trafford). One of those wins was at the London Stadium, a game West Ham dominated for the first 45 minutes, held a 1-0 lead at half-time, but went on to lose 3-1 once Solskjaer introduced Rashford and Fernandes.


Manchester United Vs West Ham – Key Facts:

  • Not since a 1-0 scoreline in May 2007 have West Ham been able to celebrate a Premier League victory at Old Trafford, losing on nine of their twelve subsequent visits.
  • Manchester United have accrued only 39% of their total points this season in home matches (W6 D3 L4), conceding six more when compared to away (19 vs 13).
  • West Ham have lost one of their past six away Premier League games (W3 D2 L1), with that a harsh 2-1 scoreline at Man City whose own manager recently admitted they were fortunate to win.


David Moyes will have his team fired up for this. West Ham are in excellent form too, with four wins in six league games having lost once away from home since Christmas (W3 D2 L1). They gave Man City a scare at the Etihad recently, ultimately losing 2-1, and can do similar against a Man Utd side featuring several who started, and didn’t exactly excel, in Thursday’s 1-1 draw here against AC Milan.
