West Ham United vs Manchester United - 9/29/18 English Premier League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Manchester United will travel to London where they will be playing away from home against West Ham United at London Stadium.

West Ham have turned around their form as they beat Everton away from home and then got a draw against Chelsea last weekend. This side has lots of talent and it looks like the new recruits are starting to settle in at the club. The fans are also getting behind West Ham United and after a tough 12 months, the Hammers are getting better. This is set to be another tough match for West Ham as they are playing one of the top teams in England but with the fans on their side, West Ham could be very hard to beat.

In contrast, Manchester United look to be struggling and following a draw at home against Wolves, the pressure will be on the team to win this match. Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho look to be at war and this feud is not good for the team. On a positive note, Lukaku seems to be in great form and the Belgian striker is constantly scoring to keep the team competitive. It will not be an easy match for Manchester United as their opponents have found form but with the strength of the side, the Red Devils should expect to win.

These two teams met twice last season with Manchester United winning on both occasions. In the first match, Manchester United won 2-0 and followed that win by beating West Ham 4-0 in the second match. West Ham have a very poor record against Manchester United.

While things are looking poor at Manchester United, I still think the Red Devils are good enough to beat a West Ham United side who have fewer resources and less talent in their squad. With pressure on the team to get points, I see Manchester United getting a victory.
