Manchester United v West Ham Betting Preview, Odds & Tips
- Date: 13/04/19
- Time: 17:30
- Venue: Old Trafford
West Ham are in limbo now they have passed that relegation and fourteen points from the drop zone with a possible eighteen to play for, so effectively safe unless a bizarre turn of events were to occur.
Manchester United suffered a narrow defeat in the quarter final of the Champions League and have a 1-0 deficit to rescue in the Nou camp. United are under pressure to keep pace with a top four place, not wanting to put all their eggs in one basket and should have enough depth for some rotation against a West Ham firmly in 11th position, so how motivated are the Irons coming into this with a handful of games left?
Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are both suspended meaning Marcos Rojo or Matteo Darmian will be in contention to start
Scott McTominay and Fred are odds on to retain their spots although if Nemanja Matic is passed fit could be an influence.
Alexis Sanchez could make the bench, but Ander Herrera is side-lined for the new two resulting that options are open for Lingard and Anthony Martial to start on pending Ole’s final selection.
Javier Hernandez is 50/50 after Monday’s game, but will want to face a previous club Manchester United this weekend.
Issa Diop should return to the starting eleven and is in good shape to contend for his place back
Potential Manchester United Starting XI: Gea, Dalot, Smalling, Lindelof, Darmian, Fred, McTominay, Pogba, Martial and Lukaku
Potential West Ham Starting XI: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Balbuena, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Arnutovic, Lanzini, Anderson and Chicharito

Manchester United have been effective at home most of the season and have demonstrated this with being undefeated in their last thirteen at Old Trafford. With the options open to Ole’s Red Devils, they will need to pull off a performance if they are to make the Champions League Semi Finals stage.
My thoughts are on where United’s priorities are, and my conclusion is, that if they have no choice but to win. With no guarantees of making the Champions League next season, the top three is reachable, with all of their counterparts above all involved in their respective European campaigns.
West Ham, however could put up some resistance, seeing that they have kept score lines down on the road, despite failing to score, which could keep the corner count down.
I speak of corners, and this is the area I am leaning towards. I see United have not covered this particular handicap in nine from fifteen games at home, whereas on the road, the hammers have restricted this in nine from sixteen on the road including four of the last six in 2019. Manchester United in the last six have passed the +4 handicap on three of the last half dozen at Old Trafford, but factoring in the Champions League, perhaps Manchester United will look at working smarter to take a narrow win.
