Betting Tips and Predictions: Manchester United vs West Ham, Premier League. In the last match of Round 1 in Premier League, Manchester United host West Ham at Old Trafford. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester United vs West Ham.
Manchester United didn’t make good result last season when they finished at the 6th position, but they have managed to win Europa League and qualify directly in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. Few days ago they lost in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid 1-2, but despite that defeat they showed very decent performance. Their new striker Lukaku scored goals, Nemanja Matic played very good in midfield, while Lindelof made good performance in defence. Matic will play as defensive midfielder, which means that Pogba could move closer to attackers and be very dangerous in the attack. With all these new players, Manchester United seem much stronger than previous season and they are one of the main candidate for the title. The first game in Premier League against West Ham is very important for home side and they want to take all three points and start the season on the best possible way. Manchester United beat West Ham United in the both PL matches last season, so they believe that can make another good result against team from London.
West Ham finished the last season at the middle of the table and they believe that can make better results this season and finish in the Top 6. They played 6 friendly games in the preparing period, but managed to win only once, and it was the victory against Fulham. In the last friendly game, Manchester City smashed them 3-0, so they have to play much better in order to avoid defeat at Old Trafford. Visitors brought few players in the summer transfer window, such as Arnautovic, Chicharito and goalkeeper Hart. They have very decent squad, but we will see are they capable to avoid defeat against Manchester United. Visitors last time beat Manchester United at Old Trafford 10 years ago, so it’s hard to believe that they can win this game, but one point would worth as three. Chicharito will play against his ex club, so it will be interesting to see him in the attack along Arnautovic.
Home side miss Rojo, Shaw and Young. On the other side, visitors will be without Antonio, Carroll, Kouyate and Sakho, while Cresswell and Lanzini are both doubtful.

Manchester United vs West Ham Prediction

West Ham have very good squad, but it will be hard for them to avoid defeat. I expect interesting match between Manchester United vs West Ham and believe that home side will finish the job in the first half-time.
