Prediction and betting tips for West Ham vs. Manchester United(19/9/21) Time:14:00
A journey to London to play West Ham United awaits them this weekend. Manchester United are top of the Premier League heading into the fifth round, The Hammers had a strong season under David Moyes and are only 2 points behind Manchester United, but they might be sluggish after just returning from a trip to Croatia late on Thursday night.
Manchester United to Win
This weekend, the smart money looks to be on an away win, and we’re also picking Man United to win on Sunday.
The visitors have won their past three meetings with the Hammers, and have three wins and a tie from their first four league games of the season.
West Ham are yet to lose this season, although after winning their first two games, they were only able to draw with Crystal Palace and Southampton.
Ronaldo is expected to score
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in his Old Trafford comeback against Newcastle United and then scored the lone goal in a 2-1 Champions League loss to Young Boys the following week.
Any doubts have been proven incorrect thus far thanks to Ronaldo, and the Portuguese legend is expected to score once more when Manchester United go to London this coming weekend.
Three of West Ham’s previous four games have had both teams score, and four of Manchester United’s last five games in all competitions have seen the same thing happen.
Both teams have only managed to maintain one clean sheet so far this season, and neither one will be expected to improve on that record this weekend.
It’s a major setback for West Ham since their leading scorer Michael Antonio has been banned. Winston Reid, meanwhile, is still uncertain with a knee injury.
Injuries have ruled Rashford, Traore, Telles, and Cavani out of Saturday’s trip to London, although McTominay and Jones might make their comeback to the team.
Will Ronaldo once again be the star of the show?
Some predicted that West Ham’s bubble will burst early in the 2021/22 season after the club performed so brilliantly last season under David Moyes’ management.
The only problem for Moyes will be facing one of his old teams this weekend, as West Ham are unbeaten in their first four Premier League games and appear to be set to challenge for European qualifying for the second consecutive season.
Man United are off to a great start in the 2021/22 season, and their early results show that they will meet their primary goal of closing the gap between themselves and their local rivals.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Manchester United, even at the age of 36, already looks to be paying off. He may be the spark that ignites the Red Devils’ comeback as legitimate championship contenders once more.
