Manchester United v West Ham Betting Preview – Premier League 13th August 4.00pm

Manchester United go into their home opener as strong odds-on favourites to take down the Irons. But they have had their struggles in seeing off West Ham in recent home games against the London club, having won just one of their last four at Old Trafford against them. But United look stronger going into this season and Romelu Lukaku has a great scoring record against West Ham. But the Hammers themselves have done a bit of shopping in the off-season that may make them stronger going forward.

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Tips

The Red Devils have brought in a new goal scoring threat in the form of Romelu Lukaku and have bolstered their defensive midfield position by getting Nemanja Matic from Chelsea. Why the Premier League champions sold him to a rival is baffling. But that’s a win for United and going back to Romelu Lukaku he is going to be expected to bring the goals for United and he has scoring form against West Ham. Lukaku has scored seven goals in ten appearances against West Ham before. The Belgian is a price of 11/4 in the bet365 First Goalscorer market and he is 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market. United lost only once on home soil in last season’s Premier League, but they have had their struggled in beating West Ham at Old Trafford recently.

United have gone W1 D3 in their last four on home soil against the Hammers and the last two in the Premier League between them there have ended in a draw. In the correct score market at bet365, a 1-1 draw is a price of 10/1 while the shortest priced option to consider is a Man Utd 2-0 at 11/2. Manchester United’s recent head to head record against West Ham in all competitions home and away reads W3 D4 L1. Since losing a shock opener in the 2014/15 season against Swansea, the Red Devils have won their last two opening games of a new season, beating Spurs a couple of seasons ago and then Bournemouth last term.

West Ham then have drawn three of their last four visits to Old Trafford in all competitions. They have added attacking variety and depth having brought in Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez and they have added Marko Arnautovic from Stoke. The Hammers failed to get going lats season at all and boss Slaven Bilic was under pressure. But he got them safe and held onto his job but overall the Hammers will be hoping for a lot better this time around. Both teams to score at bet365 is a price of 11/10 which has some appeal. There’s no reason why they can’t cause United problems, especially in the air and both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings. The Hammers went W5 D5 L9 away from home last season.
