West Ham United v Manchester United 17:30

– Last season’s repeat fixture ended, West Ham 2-0 Man Utd

– West Ham took 4 points off Man Utd last season

– The last 2 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS

– West Ham have lost just 1 of their last 6 home league games vs Man Utd

– 5 DRAWS in the last 11 league head-to-heads

– Both teams scored in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads

– Both teams DIDN’T score in 3 of the last 4 repeat fixtures

Both West Ham and Manchester United will be buzzing after winning their last Premier League games and with just a point between them in the league at the start of week 11, we should be set for a decent match.

West Ham saw off Villa 2-1 last time out and sit on 17 points after 10 games, while United are on 16 having played a game less (9 games) so are right in the mix of things too.

The match betting ahead of this game sees West Ham at 3.60, the draw 3.60 and Man Utd at 2.00.

Last season’s repeat fixture saw West Ham win 2-0, so that will give Hammers fans something to cling to – while, in fact, the Londoners took 4 points off United last season in the league.

Having said that, we normally have tight encounters when these two meet – the last two have seen Under 2.5 goals, while even though both teams have scored in 3 of the last 4 overall head-to-heads you might want to go carefully here as 3 of the last 4 repeat fixtures saw both teams NOT score.

We have seen a lot of DRAWS too, when these sides have played – 5 of the last 11 match-ups have ended all-square, but it’s also worth pointing out that West Ham do have a decent home record when facing United at home – the Hammers have lost only one of their last 6 when playing the Red Devils on their home patch.

Looking at the scoring markets – West Ham’s Antonio will be popular at 7.50 (1st) or 3.00 (anytime), while last weekend’s two-goal hero for United – Cavani – is sure to be on many shortlists at 6.00 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime).

Overall, it looks a fascinating match and a win for either side would be huge in moving them within touching distance of the top teams. But it’s also a tricky game to call, so with 45% of the last 11 games between then sides ending with the sides sharing the points, then the DRAW at 3.60 looks a nice option and hopefully one that will give us a run for our money.
