WEST HAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED
KICK OFF: Saturday 29th Sept 2018 | 13:30 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE WK7 | LONDON STADIUM
West Ham off the mark but can they up their game to get a result against Manchester United?
Both teams displayed improved performances after the international break, and both will be all out to build on their results when they lock horns at the London Stadium.
Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Marko Arnautovic ensured West Ham clinched their first win of the season against Everton. This win will undoubtedly lift team spirit and give them confidence going into the clash against United. Manuel Pellegrini will hope Arnautovic is fit for this encounter after the striker suffered a knee injury. Chicharito will likewise relish the opportunity to get minutes on the pitch playing against his former club.
United have now managed two consecutive victories on the road with Watford being the latest team to be put to the sword. Both Rashford and Matic will be available for selection after serving suspensions. Romelu Lukaku is up and running, and he will have maximum support behind him with the likes Sanchez and Pogba creating chances for the striker to put away.
This fixture was a barren draw last time out. The Red Devils are growing efficient and ruthless, and they should see off West Ham with or without serious opposition.
