West Ham welcome Manchester United to the London Stadium for an iconic Premier League meeting. The Hammers continue to remain just above the bottom three even if they have lost only once in the last five games across all competitions. Manchester United continue to go through a huge amount of off-the-field issues with speculation concerning Paul Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Ham were able to snatch a hard-fought goalless draw with Chelsea, although manager Manuel Pellegrini was highly disappointed in the way that the Hammers were unable to put away the excellent the chances that came their way.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho suffered back-to-back disappointments against his former players, as United drew 1-1 with Wolves – managed by Nuno – in the league and went on to lose on penalties to Derby County – managed by Frank Lampard – in the League Cup.
The recent game between these two clubs produced a goalless draw at the London Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

The hammers may be at 4.00 to win the game but it is not an attractive choice. Manchester United are given a substantially short 1.85, which does not appeal to us, to win the game. The situation around West Ham is improving after a disastrous start, while Manchester United are no better than they were a few months ago when Jose Mourinho was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The lack of form coupled with too much focus on the squad is likely to help West Ham take a point from the game, as per our preview.

Manchester United win odds: 1.85
West Ham win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester United have not been decisive going forward this season while opposition have been able to find a way past a defence that has looked devoid of confidence. West Ham are slowly improving but the team has been able to get some positive results owing to great hard work. Pellegrini needs his players to put in another great shift this weekend. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester United have the quality to exploit any opposition but infighting within the squad coupled with uncertainty surrounding the manager is likely to result in a disoriented performance from the Red Devils. West Ham are also not in a strong position to score some goals, although the return of some key players certainly helped matters. Still, our total goals prediction would choose a low scoring game with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
West Ham still have a lot of players on the sidelines which will leave the hard-working Michail Antonio to lead the line. He will be assisted by the likes of Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko, who missed a glorious chance against Chelsea. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Antonio.
