Six of the last seven meetings between these sides have seen both teams score.
Man Utd v West Ham - Sunday 16:30
Man Utd were left wondering how they managed to drop two points in their draw against Arsenal last week as Olivier Giroud came off the bench to add to Jose Mourinho’s woes. They remain six points off Arsenal in fourth, but their last two performances have improved with the introduction of Michael Carrick to the starting 11. The former England international offers a measure of control despite his limited running ability, with his range and accuracy of passing far better than that of his team mates.
West Ham will also be kicking themselves after conceding late and dropping points. However, unlike United they managed to drop all three, with 89th and 90th minute goals from Harry Kane turning victory into a sour defeat. West Ham took the lead twice, yet their porous defence let them down once more. The Hammers have now conceded at least twice in 10 of their last 12 away matches, and as a result have succumbed to defeat in six of their last seven of these.
Six of the last seven meetings between these two sides across all competitions have seen both teams score, and we think that is likely to continue here. West Ham have only failed to score twice in their last 26 top-flight outings, and with United missing both Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling from the heart of their defence we’re backing both teams to score.
