West Ham has been quite impressive in the Premier League so far and has not yet been defeated. It won its opening two games and has since drawn the next two. of course, it did record a 2-0 victory in the Europa League midweek and that will add to its confidence as well. Manchester United suffered a shock defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League and seem to be coming down from the Cristiano euphoria. They have been unbeaten in the previous 28 away Premier League matches and will definitely look to keep that record going.
West Ham is going to be without Michail Antonio who got a red card against Southampton. He is the current leading goal-scorer for West Ham and his absence is a big loss to West Ham's chances.
Match prediction and football betting tips for West Ham vs Manchester United, English Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the London Stadium, London on the 19th of September 2021.
Manchester United came under a lot of criticism for its performance in the previous match. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was lambasted for his tactics, substitutions, and the manner in which United just capitulated after going one man down. To not have a single shot on target after the 25th minute of the game was just unbelievable for a team that is a genuine title contender for the Premier League and the Champions League. We expect a response from Manchester United in this match and a statement of intent.
Expect a lot more attack with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Mason Greenwood leading the way. West Ham has not been defeated at home in its previous three fixtures but without Antonio, its ability to score goals is severely hampered. We think a first defeat of the season for Hammers is around the corner.
Bet on Manchester United to win.
Total Goals Over/Under
Over 2.5 @ 1.66
We are going to predict more than 2.5 goals in this match even though West Ham is missing its most prolific scorer of the season. The reason for that is that United is going to be extremely motivated to respond to the fan criticism and show that its loss against Young Boys was an anomaly. They certainly have the quality to be able to score over 2.5 goals alone in this match.
Manchester United just gave up two goals to Young Boys of all teams and so its defense is far from being a finished product. The new summer signings have made it stronger, however, and with West Ham missing one of its key strikers, we think this is a great opportunity for Manchester United to keep a clean sheet. The previous two matches between Manchester United and West Ham have also seen West Ham fail to score.
