How is this for a one-sided series? West Ham United have only won once in their past 19 league games versus Manchester United. They have suffered 13 losses and managed five draws over that time. However, United haven’t really been able to really stack those wins on top of each other, lately, in this series.

If the visitors triumph here, it would mark three in a row in the league over the Hammers for the first time since Sept. 2014. So with that in mind let’s preview! We’ll do it again a couple more days down the road, as these two sides will meet again in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
