Manchester United and West Ham United square off on Sunday, with Hammers manager David Moyes making a return to his old stomping ground following an unforgettable midweek thriller. The Red Devils showcased arguably their finest performance of the season, initially taking a comfortable two-goal lead against Wolves, and were up 3-1 before defensive lapses allowed Wolves to pull back two late goals.
However, an injury-time stunner from rising star Kobbie Mainoo clinched a dramatic win for United, providing a significant morale boost and lifting them to seventh in the table, just a point shy of West Ham, who had a less eventful midweek, settling for a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth in a rather lacklustre match.
West Ham, maintaining sixth place, have found themselves in a rough patch, drawing four of their last five matches and showing signs of a mid-season slump.
Manchester United enter this match as the clear favourites, at 4/5.
Rasmus Hojlund, having scored against teams like Aston Villa, Spurs, Newport County, and Wolves in his recent outings, is finding his stride. He’s priced at 9/5 to score anytime.
James Ward-Prowse, fresh from scoring his second penalty in consecutive games, is at 11/2 to score at any time during the match.
Manchester United, despite not being the dominant force they once were, have shown glimmers of returning to their classic, attacking play, especially highlighted by their recent win. Facing a West Ham team currently not at their best, United will be looking to build on their newfound momentum.
