Manchester United vs West Ham: Michael Owen gives his prediction for this tricky fixture


Up next for Manchester United is a home game against the in-form West Ham team at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has done a good job since taking over as the Hammers boss, and West Ham lie in 5th position in the Premier League, and just two points behind fourth place Chelsea with a game in hand.

West Ham aren’t far off from United, as they are 6 points behind having played a game less.

The race for top four also makes this a massive tie for both clubs, and the Hammers have been in good form, with three wins out of their last five.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has tagged this as a tricky tie for United and is predicting a 1-1 draw.

Owen told BetVictor: “David Moyes has been touted widely as a candidate for Manager of the Year and I have to say it’s well deserved. The Hammers are exceeding most people’s expectations and I see this being a very tricky fixture for Manchester United.

“United’s best performances have been on the road this season. At home, overall, they’ve been decent, however, they do tend to switch off.

“It must be noted that Jesse Lingard will miss out due to the terms of his loan deal, so that is a blow for the visitors.

“That said, I still think the Hammers have enough about them to get something, so I’m siding with David Moyes to take at least a point against his former employers.”
