West Ham United vs Manchester United Prediction: Premier League Match on 05.12.2020
Manchester United are back in Premier League action this weekend, and they will have the chance to jump into the top-four. Meanwhile, West Ham United could jump to as high as third with a win this weekend.
Premier League Preview
A lot has been said about Manchester United’s start to the Premier League season, which means that it is strange to think that a win in this game coupled with a win in United’s game in hand would leave the Red Devils just two points off the top of the table. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has managed to steady the ship once again under immense pressure, with his job security called into question before a trip to Everton.
Since then, United have won three league games on the bounce, and are within touching distance of the next round of the Champions League. The Red Devils travel to the London Stadium having lost just once in six league games. Confidence will be pretty high within the camp at United after the overturned a 2-0 half time lead in their last game against Southampton. Edinson Cavani was the catalyst in that game, as he scored twice from the bench.
West Ham United have also overcome relegation fears from at the beginning of the season to win their last three. The Hammers are now sitting comfortably in fifth place in the league, and have also lost just once in six outings. They needed to ride their luck in their last game against Aston Villa, as the Midlands side cruelly had an equalising goal disallowed by the tightest of margins. But, Jarrod Bowen and Angelo Ogbonna goals were enough to seal all three points despite having just 34% of the possession.
West Ham United vs Manchester United Head To Head
United have a terrible record away at West Ham, as they haven’t won in their last three trips. West Ham won the game at the London Stadium 2-0 last season, before claiming a 1-1 draw back at Old Trafford.
West Ham United vs Manchester United Prediction
The Red Devils haven’t performed at the London Stadium over the last two seasons, but that is something that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping will change this weekend. United have been in good form and have shown glimpses of their best. If they are defensively solid in this game, then they will get the three points.
