West Ham vs Manchester United: Three things to expect from Saturday's late kick-off

Manchester United v West Ham United - Premier League

West Ham travel to Old Trafford in the Saturday evening kick-off looking to add to Manchester United’s misery, as the Red Devil’s aim to rebound ahead of a return fixture in Spain.

Another loss for Man United mid-week in the Champions League makes it their fourth in the last five outings and is becoming a bit of a habit for a team who are battling for a top four position.

They will be frustrated not to have gotten anything from their match against Barcelona, but must put their disappointment behind them when they face a West Ham side who have lost their last two games and were boo’d off by their own fans after a listless display against Everton in their last home match.

Stuck in a solid mid-table position with nothing left to play for, how will the Hammers cope with an evening trip to Old Trafford?

The hosts realistically know finishing 4th will be their best shot at Champions League football next season, but will surely have one eye on their trip to the Nou Camp next week.

GIVEMEBET gives you the inside track on Saturday evening’s match:

  • United have been mis-firing of late and the inspiration of Paul Pogba has appeared to have gone missing. This will be a crucial week for the Red Devils' season and they will need their talisman to lead the way. Without a goal or assist in his last 6 games, look for Pogba to turn it on in the biggest week of his United career. He is 7/5 to score anytime and 2/1 to get an assist.
  • When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first arrived as interim manager, United went on a tear. Not only did they win ten of their next eleven, they did so scoring 28 goals. Key to their success was getting an early goal and they have scored goals in the first half in their last two league matches. A goal in the first 15 mins is 17/10.
  • In September, before the teams faced each other at the London Stadium for the first time this season, United were 6th and West Ham 11th. The home side cruised to a 3-1 victory over a then Jose Mourinho managed United side. A lot has happened since, yet the two teams find themselves in exactly the same league positions several months later heading into the re-match. If déjà vu is on the cards, a 3-1 home win is 17/2.
