The Hammers and Red Devils do battle at Old Trafford this weekend in the English Premier League. West Ham will fancy themselves in this one, but United will be sure to put up a good fight. Manchester United have won their last four matches against The Hammers. Their best-ever winning streak against West Ham is eight, which they achieved between 2008 and 2012.
The Red Devils haven’t been afraid to get their hands dirty this season. Erik ten Hag’s side has received more yellow cards than any other team so far this season. United averages nearly three yellow cards per game at this time (2.9)
West Ham has not won at Old Trafford since 2007. In fact, they have picked up just three points in their last fourteen away matches against Man Utd. The scorer of the match-winning goal in their last victory against MUFC?
None other than Carlos Tevez.

Without further ado, here is how we think West Ham lines up against Manchester United.
DEF- Johnson, Kehrer, Zouma, Ogbonna, Emerson
MID- Fornals, Soucek, Rice
ATT- Scamacca, Antonio
West Ham is woeful at Old Trafford, and despite their good form, I don’t see them changing that here. Manchester United are purring along nicely and I think they will have too much firepower to be held by a frail West Ham backline.
