Man Utd v West Ham Spurs Betting Predictions | Premier League BettingPublished November 24, 2016
Manchester United are in desperate need of a win in the Premier League and could well get it when West Ham visit Old Trafford on Sunday. Although the Theatre of Dreams is not the stomping ground of yesteryear, the Red Devils have dominated visitors in recent weeks but simply failed to kill them off. Stoke, Burnley and Arsenal all escaped with undeserved points.
The return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be a boost to the side if he can replicate the fine goal-scoring performance he produced at Swansea before the international break.
Anthony Martial has been in disappointing form this season and Marcus Rashford has gone off the boil in recent weeks but both should partner the Swede with Juan Mata in support. Rumours have been circulating this week that Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for defenders and it’s little wonder when you consider how his second-string lieutenants have performed.
It’s no use keeping strikers quiet for 80 minutes if you’re going to switch off at vital moments. The absence of Eric Bailly is a blow for United but Chris Smalling could return to the starting line-up. Whether this is a good thing or not for United, we’re unsure. Antonio Valencia’s surprise comeback was definitely something to cheer last weekend, the Ecuadorian was superb.
Much of Mourinho’s line-up will depend on how they fared in the Europa League against Feyenoord. West Ham come into the game looking for their first win in three games. They were on the losing end of a 3-2 thriller at Tottenham last weekend and will be hopeful of heaping further misery on the under-pressure United boss before they meet again in the EFL Cup.
Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea, Valencia, Rojo, Smalling, Blind, Herrera, Pogba, Martial, Rashford, Mata, Ibrahimovic
West Ham predicted XI: Randolph, Ogbonna, Collins, Cresswell, Payet, Kouyaté, Antonio, Obiang, Lanzini, Ayew, Sakho
