Reason For Manchester United vs West Ham Betting Tips

Manchester United returned to competitive action for the new season in midweek as they contested the UEFA Super Cup against Champions League holders Real Madrid. As many predicted, they did come off second best against the unstoppable La Liga giant, but they held their own for a lot of the tie and only lost 2-1 in the end.

Now Jose Mourinho gears up for the new Premier League season as he looks to challenge for the title with Manchester United. He’s made significant moves in the transfer market to bridge the gap too, bringing in Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, and Victor Lindelof for a significant wedge of cash.

Lukaku got off the mark competitive with a goal against Real Madrid on Tuesday, and he managed three pre-season goals as well. Considering he got an impressive 25 league goals for Everton last season and will enjoy arguably better service this year, he looks a prime candidate for top scorer this year. Backing him to open his account on Sunday at 8/11 looks the best choice for our anytime goalscorer predictions.

West Ham fell back down to earth last season after a very impressive campaign in the 2015/16 season, but Slaven Bilic has been working on fixing their problems over the summer. He has brought in Marko Arnautovic and Chicarito, the latter of which could prove bargain of the season for just £16 million. He is likely to face off with his former club on Sunday, and given that the Hammers scored in 15 of their 19 away days last season, I think they will be able to find the net here.

West Ham’s problem was at the other end of the pitch though. They conceded 33 goals on the road last season, and it seems highly unlikely that they can keep a Manchester United side who scored in all but three of their home games out. This makes odds of 11/10 for Both Teams to Score look very good value for money, so we’re backing that as our main prediction.

West Ham did tend to hold out until at least half time last year, and only went into the break behind in 21% of their away games. Manchester United were winning at half time in just 42% of their home games as well, so odds of 11/4 for a Draw/Manchester United Half Time/Full Time result look good value alongside a 2-1 correct score predictions at 17/2.

Tadas – Man United

“I believe the Red Devils will easily start their season on the right foot by winning against West Ham. With the likes of Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Rashford and Mata (who is fresh from injury and should be featuring in the game), I don’t see them scoring less than 2 goals at home. These first 3 points are very important for the campaign and for their morale. Lukaku should be very motivated to do his best on his debut in EPL wearing a red shirt. If we look at the Hammers, they managed only one win in their pre-season tour, which does not look very promising. Yes, they were friendlies but given the fact that they were mainly playing against much weaker sides, shows that they still lack consistency and desire to win. That does not mean they are not able to score goals. They are, but they tend to either let their lead slip or they can’t comeback from the difference that the opposing team has accumulated. I see quite a few goals in this match since both teams have improved their front line (Lukaku and Chicarito) and the way history shows us these teams tend to find the net on both sides. I am certain that Man United’s opening game at home will be a win.”

Score prediction: 2-1 Man United
