West Ham United vs Manchester United | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After Chelsea, the Hammers fans will have an opportunity to see another derby. Manchester United is coming to London, in a desperate search for some good result. The home team’s form was improving over the last two weeks, and this should be a perfect test for them to see if that claim stands.
The Hammers played a goalless draw against Chelsea last Sunday, and they considered that as a huge success. They became the first team this season to restrain Chelsea’s attack, and that is a nice achievement. Meanwhile, United is terrible, and Mourinho is under huge pressure after 1:1 at home against the Wolves, and especially after being eliminated from the English Football League Cup this Tuesday.
West Ham United
We and the whole world expected goals in the match between West Ham and Chelsea, but it turned out to be completely different. It was only the second event in the last seven which this team played, to finish with under 2.5 goals. But it was also the first one in which they haven’t lost at London stadium, after two painful defeats against Wolverhampton and Bournemouth. If they succeed to stay unbeaten in this one too, that would pretty much erase minuses from the start of the season. West Ham likes to play open and offensive football, and they have pacey strikers who will definitely create some trouble for the shaky United’s defense.
There are two ways from here. Either Mourinho gets fired, or Paul Pogba leaves the club. The tensions between the two have reached the climax and it seems that there will be no turning back now. And all of this is reflecting upon the team, whose performances have been catastrophic lately. First, United gets only one point against the Wolves, at Old Trafford, and later, they suffer elimination from the Carabao Cup also at home, against Derby County. It was 2:2 after 90 minutes, even though Man Utd had a lead at the break. During the penalty shootout, the guests had more nerves, and produced one hell of a surprise in the first round of this competition. By the way, we have to mention that this match was the seventh in the previous 9 the Red Devils played, which ended with over 2.5 goals. Also, it was the third in a row at Trafford which they haven’t won, which is a humiliating fact for all their fans.

West Ham United vs Manchester United | Top Betting Tip: Draw (1-1)
We believe that the atmosphere in Manchester locker-room is very very bad, and that we are about to see one big breakdown of this team in general. It’s maybe better for them to get over that as soon as possible so that they can recover quickly and avoid ruining the whole season. Their defense is bad, morale is terrible, and it is not very wise to bet on them. A draw is the best solution in this case, because we are not sure either in West Ham’s capabilities of taking advantage of the current situation. At least one goal will be seen on both sides, and from our point of view, it is the safest bet here. The final prognosis, West Ham-Manchester United 1:1.
