Manchester United vs West Ham predictions and betting tips ahead of this Premier League clash, kicking off at 4pm on Sunday, 13th August. Can United bounce back from their Super Cup defeat?
Can Manchester United get their Premier League campaign off to a winning start? The Red Devils host West Ham on the opening day, and they’ll be hoping Javier Hernandez won’t come back to haunt them after signing for the Hammers this summer.
After scoring against Real Madrid in the Super Cup, it’s tough to say that Lukaku doesn’t score against the top sides. One thing he certainly does in trouble West Ham, with nine goals in 12 appearances against the Hammers in his career. With that kind of record, he’s certainly worth backing to score any time at 3/4 with William Hill, which is our first Manchester United vs West Ham prediction.
We see Lukaku scoring, but we also expect West Ham to get a goal. The Hammers averaged 1.47 goals per game on the road last term, and they’ve troubled United in most of their recent encounters. With the Red Devils coming back from Macedonia ahead of this one, we’re backing both teams to score in our second Manchester United vs West Ham prediction at 11/10 with Bet365.
Manchester United should be close to full strength here, while West Ham are likely to field a few new signings.
Seven of the last nine meetings between these two have seen both teams score.
Given their poor record against bottom half sides last term, we can see United drawing this one. They came up short against too many teams last term, and that’s going to be tough to fix without another creative player. We’re backing a 1-1 draw in our final Manchester United vs West Ham prediction, which is priced at 10/1 with BetFred.
