Old Trafford, Manchester
West Ham head to Old Trafford as the filling in a Barcelona sandwich for Manchester United, leaving the Hammers confident of heading home with something to show for their efforts.
West Ham’s record at Old Trafford is poor. The Hammers have not recorded victory at the Theatre of Dreams since 2007 but after victory over the Manchester United on home soil earlier in the season, confidence in the visitors’ camp will be high that they can beat their rivals.
The two sides also find themselves at different stages in their season. Manchester United are fighting for a top-four slot and the Champions League with the outcome of this game surely set to be influenced by the Red Devils result at home against Barcelona just three days prior.
However, West Ham also have their own issues to deal with. Survival in the Premier League is all but assured and recent defeats to Cardiff and Everton have drawn criticism for a lack of effort.
That is one of the reasons many of the best betting sites continue to make the home side the heavy favourites and although West Ham may never have a better opportunity to claim victory at Old Trafford, that poor mentality makes them hard to back especially on the road.
Six defeats in seven on the road for the Hammers in all competitions means the only way to go is with the home win with United recording the win and ensuring the Hammers fail to score for their third straight away game in a 2-0 win.
Manchester United to win to nil
The Hammers have only scored in once in their last six away Premier League games making this the best bet with popular sportsbooks for full-time match result value.
West Ham to fail to score is
Not only are the Hammers struggling to score on the road against anyone, they also have failed to score in three of their last four games against the Red Devils.
