Aiming to stay in the European race, Manchester United and West Ham will lock horns at Old Trafford in what promises to be an enthralling Premier League clash on Sunday.

While dominating the first half of the midweek clash, the Red Devils unexpectedly displayed a completely different face in the second 45 minutes, allowing the Wolves to even the score at 3-3, but Manchester's gem Kobbie Mainoo resolved the winner with a fantastic strike in deep stoppage time for a wild 4-3 victory. Three points pocketed during a sizzling visit to the Molinex Stadium kept the European dreams alive for Eric ten Haag's men, now eight points behind fifth-placed Aston Villa, which holds the last ticket to enter the continental club scene.

Since the start of the new calendar year, West Ham has neither savored the sweetness of victory nor suffered defeat, settling instead for sharing points in their third consecutive Premier League outing, all thanks to James Ward-Prowse's precision from the penalty spot to salvage a point in a hard-fought 1-1 draw against resilient Bournemouth. The fair share of points at the London Stadium on Thursday extends David Moyes' team's drought without success into the new year, encompassing five competitive outings, but they remain well-positioned to compete for European berths, sitting in sixth place with a seven-point gap from the Champions League spots.

Manchester United vs West Ham United Betting Tips: BTTS

Separated by just one point, a victory for Man Utd could see them leapfrog over West Ham in the standings to claim the sixth spot, but with both teams enter Sunday's contest with equal chances of success, we fancy goals in both nets. Even though Erik ten Hag deployed the best possible defensive quartet midweek, he observed a less-than-ideal situation in the backline as Wolves slotted three balls past Andre Onana, making it the sixth match in the last seven competitive appearances where the Red Devils conceded a minimum of two goals. 

West Ham, despite still in search of their first victory in 2024 (D4, L1), will fancy their chances to capitalize on the defensive lapses of the Sunday hosts to etch their name on the scoresheet, having netted precisely two goals in all but one of their last six Premier League away fixtures. While Manchester's attack appears well-oiled, stringing together two consecutive competitive matches with four goals, the main concern lies in the defense, which has managed only one clean sheet in the last 10 affairs at Old Trafford. The first head-to-head clash of the term went to the Hammers, who hammered Man Utd on their home turf in a routine 2-0 win, but now the Red Devils will be looking for cruel revenge, which could lead to an exciting split of points between the evenly matched sides.

Manchester United team news

Despite Lisandro Martinez limping off with minutes to spare before the full 90, MUFC head coach Erik ten Hag reassured the faithful fans that the Argentine defender did not renewed his injury.

While there's a chance Sofyan Amrabat could be ready for Sunday's Premier League clash with the Hammers after Morocco's shocking AFCON exit, the Red Devils will have to cope without the injured Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, and Anthony Martial.

Meanwhile, Vest Ham will be without the crucial offensive figure Lucas Paqueta for at least another month due to a calf injury, while the seasoned striker Michail Antonio is on the verge of a comeback after returning to training following a knee issue.

Algerian winger Said Benrahma, whose loan move to Olympique Lyon fell through at the last moment of the winter transfer window, will certainly not be an option for Sunday's clash due to the suspension he incurred in the FA Cup in mid-January, while key defender Nayef Aguerd is expected to rejoin the main squad after returning from AFCON.
