Man United v West Ham Preview
Man United’s Form
Man United have been consistently `inconsistent this season, which has seen them knocked out of Europe, out of the League Cup and 7th in the league and in reality out of any potential “title race” with their sole opportunity for success remaining being the FA Cup as the pressure pounds on ten Hag with the in coming INEOS putting his long-term future in a precarious position.
Thursday Night, brought us another dramatic night in the life of Man United Football Club, despite dominating the early stages of the game and jumping into a 0-2 lead through Rashford and Hoijlund and another sub-goal from McTominay, Wolves (helped by questionable refereeing) pegged United back to 3-3 in the 95th minute before Mainoo came up in the 97th minute to win them the game.
United had 21 shots, an XG of 3.34 and also multiple disallowed goals against Wolves that suggest the re-additions of the likes of Casemiro and Martinez in the side help their overall shape. Another victory here would see them leapfrog West Ham in the table.

West Ham’s Form
Remarkably from one manager who is constantly under pressure (ten Hag) it’s a similar story for David Moyes, despite guiding them to a Europa Conference League success last season and them currently sixth in the league with unbeaten with 9 points from their last 5 league games.
Thursday Night saw them host Bournemouth, but even though they fell behind through a Solanke finish in the 3rd minute they fought back to earn themselves a draw following a Ward-Prowse penalty in the 61st minute. 1-1 was a fair result though with The Hammers 9 shots amassing an XG of 1.39 to Bournemouth 9 amassing an XG of 1.20.
West Ham with a victory here would put them 4 points ahead of Man United in 7th place and in a strong position to target those above them in the coming weeks, especially Aston Villa and Tottenham.

Key Players To Watch
Luke Shaw – Man United
Luke Shaw with his defensive accumuen and ball-playing ability is crucial to the style of play that ten Hag is trying to implement in the club and with Martinez back available Shaw is likely to move to LB having filled in at LCB in recent times.
Likely to come up against Kudos on the RW his 1.88 Blocks (96th percentile), 2.72 Clearances (80th percentile) and 1.57 Aerials Won (88th percentile) will be crucial along with his comfortability on the ball during the build-up play.
Mohammed Kudus -West Ham
The West Ham RW has been brilliant since signing from Ajax at the end of the summer playing 24 Games scoring 9 goals and providing 1 assist across all competitions since signing from Ajax.
Expect the goals to continue with his Non-Penalty Goals Per 90 of 0.58 in the 99th percentile it shows he gets in the correct areas for higher probability chances. Another key area of his games is his elite dribbling ability with his 2.95 Successful Take-Ons Per 90 in the 86th Percentile for attacking midfielders and wingers.
Man United v West Ham Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Man United 3-1 West Ham
While United grabbed victory by the skin of their teeth against Wolves, nevertheless it was a victory that they deserved following a performance which showed more positive signs than negatives (although things remain far from perfect)
West Ham under Moyes are notoriously difficult to beat and they have had their opponents number in recent encounters with two wins from their last two in head-to-head games.
I think United win this one benefiting from a new sense of stability with all their returning players.
