Premier League

Odds: 1.72

Without a doubt, Manchester United will be the favorite at home. However, West Ham United can definitely cause trouble. The London club has recently no problems with performance and the Mancunians on the eve of the game will miss four defenders at once.

Manchester United

Having been defeated in the FA Cup semi-finals, Manchester United are now able to concentrate fully on getting into the top four. Leicester have already lost 0: 3 in this round. Now Manchester United and the Foxes have not only an equal number of points, but also the same goal difference.

This means that if Manchester United can defeat West Ham, Leicester in the next game will need not only to beat the Mancunians, but also to do it with a score of at least more than a goal difference. That is why, Manchester United is extremely interested in shooting as many goals as possible in the upcoming match.

Manchester United's loss to Chelsea became the first one out of 20 official matches. After the break the “red devils” gained cruising speed in the Premier League. In the last five matches, Manchester United defeated Aston Villa (3: 0), Bournemouth (5: 2), Brighton (3: 0), defeated Crystal Palace (2: 0) and drew with Southampton (2: 2).

In addition, Manchester United have a few injured. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team has Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe in the infirmary. The participation in the match of Luke Shaw is in question. Compared to the situation the Mancunians had before, we can say that the team has no serious staffing problems.

West Ham

Two wins in a row helped West Ham to protect themselves from relegation. Mathematically, the Hammers can still get into the Championship. But for this they need to lose 0: 8 or so and Bournemouth or Aston Villa should win their matches with about the same score. That is, David Moyes did save the London team and can add this season to his asset. Although the Scotsman hasn't had a successful seasons since Everton.

In the last five matches, West Ham have earned ten points, which helped the Hammers to break out of the relegation zone. Moyes' players beat Chelsea (3: 2), Norwich (4: 0) and Watford (3: 1), drew with Newcastle (2: 2) and lost to Burnley (0: 1). Prior to this finishing spurt, West Ham had only earned five points in ten bouts.

There are practically no injured in the Hammers. Ryan Fredericks will not be able to play and the participation of Robert Snodgrass is in question. The latter is a more serious loss.

Prediction

Manchester United are definitely on the move. A defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals should spur Solskjaer's team even further. Another thing is that West Ham will be fresher. However, the tournament motivation, together with the lack of such motivation among the Hammers, makes Manchester United the clear favorite of the meeting.
