Man Utd v West Ham Betting Tips & Predictions

Riding a seven-match unbeaten run in all competitions, Manchester United are 8/11 favourites for the visit of West Ham to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.

Both sides won to nil in European action on Thursday night.

West Ham have now won six of eight in all competitions, losing just once in that period. Their lone defeat during that time was at Anfield, and David Moyes’ appalling record away to the top sides is under the spotlight again here.

Erik ten Hag appears to have navigated through some choppy waters with Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star will likely be on the bench here, while Harry Maguire is available after returning in midweek. West Ham have injury concerns with Jarrod Bowen and Craig Dawson.

To Win To Nil: Manchester United

2/1 (BetVictor)

West Ham’s attack is not as potent without Bowen or Lucas Paqueta, who is sidelined through injury. 

Manchester United haven’t conceded at Old Trafford since 8th September against Real Sociedad. Six of their 10 victories in all competitions have come to nil.

Ten Hag’s football has been expansive at times, but their improvement has largely been out of possession, with summer signings Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez being particularly impressive of late.

Most Corners: West Ham

14/5 (Sporting Index)

This price is too long to ignore. Only seven teams concede more corners than West Ham, but they average 4.1 in their favour compared with 4.7 against, which isn’t an insurmountable gap. 

United average just 2.9 corners in their favour and 4.2 against. For whatever reason, United haven’t generated many corner kicks in the Ten Hag era. Just twice in their last five league matches have the Red Devils had more corners than their opponents.

West Ham are a great value bet at this price. 

First Team Booking: Manchester United

10/11 (William Hill)

In general, it feels counterintuitive to back the favoured team to have the first booking. On this occasion, though, Manchester United are a good wager to be booked first.

Not only do United have booking candidates throughout their team, but they have had 32 cards overall this season. That’s the joint-most in the league.

West Ham have been cautioned just 12 times.
