The Premier League continues this weekend, and these two teams are looking to remain unbeaten when they meet this weekend. For today’s betting tip, we’ll be focusing on the clash between table-toppers Manchester United and David Moyes’ West Ham United at the London stadium.
West Ham United is looking to remain unbeaten when they welcome Manchester United to the London Stadium this weekend. West Ham left St. Mary’s with a draw last weekend despite a late dismissal which left them with ten men. With that draw, West Ham United is seventh and have kept their 100% record – two wins and two draws.
In the draw with Southampton, West Ham’s top scorer Michail Antonio was sent off and he’ll miss the visit of Manchester United. Antonio remains a huge loss for ‘The Hammers’, but they have no additional injury worries besides Winston Reid who is side-lined.
Cristiano Ronaldo completed the perfect homecoming last weekend. The Portuguese forward netted a brace in front of the Old Trafford faithful, and he will look to continue his goalscoring when ‘The Red Devils’ visit the London Stadium.
In terms of team news, Manchester United continues to be without Marcus Rashford. The English forward had shoulder surgery during the preseason and won’t feature for several weeks. Edinson Cavani has a 25% chance of being named in the squad, and Scott McTominay might return after his pre-break injury.
These two sides have been involved in extremely close encounters during recent seasons. Manchester United has won the last two games against West Ham by a narrow 1-0 margin. They also did the double over David Moyes’ side last season, however, West Ham does hold one victory in five – a 2-0 win at home in 2019.
Additionally, when these two face each other, the number of cards and corners remains low. Both teams have had less than 10.5 corners in their last five encounters against each other and both teams have had less than 4.5 cards in their last nine matchups.
Statistically, Manchester United is the favorite for this clash. The attacking talent such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, and Jadon Sancho might be too much for West Ham United. ‘The Hammers’ won’t have Michail Antonio, so we predict a United win. However, following statistics, there should be a low number of cards and corners.
Therefore, we’re predicting a Manchester United Win, Under 59.5 Booking Points, and Under 10.5 Match Corners at 21/10 with 888Sport.
