On Saturday West Ham will travel to Manchester to take on the Red Devils at Old Trafford. Louis Van Gaal's side have been excellent at home this season with four wins and two draws in the six home games they've had. Manchester United have struggled offensively at times this season but with some exceptional footballers in their squad this team is going to improve as the season continues, Mata, Martial, Schwiensteiger and Rooney will all take watching tomorrow as United look to get a win that could well take them top by the end of the days games. Old Trafford expects a performance though and Louis Van Gaal's side have quite often been lacking when it comes to excitement, they hold the ball and dominate possession well but in the final third they have struggled to covert or even create chances at times this season.
West Ham have had a great start to the season and have played really well away from home in the early games with wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. Since then West Ham have struggled a little on their travels and have lost their last two with a poor performance at Tottenham following a poor loss to Watford. West Ham though are a good side with a strong manager in Slaven Bilic. Sakho, Carroll and Zarate can cause trouble for any defence on their day and I think playing on the counter attack is West Ham's best plan especially here against a possession dominating Manchester United.
Hard to call this one for me. I think there is no value in taking Manchester United at the current price , but the home side have been very good in Old Trafford and I think they will probably get a win here in another low scoring affair. Four of Manchester United six home games have had less than two goals and I am going to take the unders here as I see this one being a 1-0 type of game.
