What Trueform says for Man Utd vs West Ham
Manchester United are looking to bounce back from a hard-fought 1-0 first-leg Champions League quarter-final home defeat at the hands of Barcelona on Wednesday.
A top-four finish is well in sight for the 20-time league champions, while West Ham have nothing to play for but pride as they sit 11th in the Premier League with five games remaining.
With pressure off the Hammers to get a result, United should maintain their strong home form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over with a half-time and full-time result in the home side’s favour, priced at 11/10, being our first Man Utd vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
The Red Devils will be in desperate need of a victory to improve their chances of securing Champions League football next season.
United sit in sixth place in a tight battle for the two remaining Champions League places that are up for grabs, five points behind Chelsea in third but with a game in hand.
Tottenham can ramp up the pressure by beating Huddersfield in Saturday’s early kick-off, while United can do the same to Europa League duo Arsenal and Chelsea, who both play on Sunday.
The hosts have been in fine home form since Solskjaer returned to Manchester, winning five of his seven matches and drawing the other two.
A goalless draw with leaders Liverpool was the only Premier League match at Old Trafford that has not featured three or more goals during that run, however, the stalemate with their arch-rivals is the only clean sheet they have kept.
With this in mind, United will want to repay the Old Trafford faithful after Wednesday’s European defeat and looking at the Man Utd vs West Ham odds, a victory of over 2.5 goals, priced at 87/100, would be the perfect tonic ahead of the midweek trip to Barcelona.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Dalot, Shaw, Pogba, Lingard, Fred, McTominay, Lukaku.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham have had a strange season by all accounts – defeating United and Arsenal at the London Stadium while also holding Liverpool and Chelsea to home draws, but have lost at the likes of struggling Cardiff and League One AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup.
West Ham have not won at Old Trafford since Carlos Tevez grabbed the only goal on the final day of the 2006-07 season, which kept the Hammers in the Premier League and relegated Sheffield United – a run of 13 games.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have picked up just one point from a possible 21 on their travels in 2019, which does not bode well against a Red Devils side aiming for a top-four finish.
The only away goal in those seven matches came from the penalty spot at Crystal Palace to earn a draw so the prospects of the travelling fans celebrating at Old Trafford appear less likely.
West Ham’s chances of snatching a Europa League qualifying spot looks to be over, while any threat of relegation have been extinguished despite their recent poor away form.
Despite this Premier League clash being sandwiched in the middle of United’s Champions League quarter-final tie, West Ham’s goalscoring woes on the road look like they will continue as both teams not to score at 1/1 rounds off our Man Utd vs West Ham tips.
Last West Ham EPL line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Fredericks, Anderson, Lanzini, Noble, Rice, Arnautovic, Hernandez.
