Manchester United vs West Ham Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday was the start of the new season 2017/18 of the English Premiere League! A traditional duel is on the first day of the game. The record champion Manchester United will receive West Ham United at Old Trafford. Both clubs want to make the rather sobering pre-season forget and this year full. Although Manchester were able to win the Europa League in the previous season, they also qualify for the Champions League this year, but a sixth place in the league does not meet the requirements of the Red Devils. West Ham United finished the 2016/17 season in eleventh place, which was also an unsatisfactory result for the club. Both teams were able to land well-known players in this transfer window and laid the foundation for a successful season.
The two direct duels from the previous Ligasaison ended with a win for Manchester United and a draw. In the League Cup the two clubs met in the quarterfinals. The game ended with a 4-1 win over Manchester United. In the last 15 direct matches, West Ham went just one time as the winner. The results of the last years clearly speak for the club from Manchester. Especially the home game underpins the favorite role of the Red Devils. Out of the 56 direct duels in Old Trafford, Manchester went 40 times as the winner of the place, the Hammers could only win eight away games so far.
Manchester United :
Some United want to have a word in this season when it comes to the Premiere League title. Most recently, the title was awarded in 2012/13. Accordingly, the club strengthened itself with high-profile players. First and foremost, the striker is Romelu Lukaku. The bullish attacker changed by 85 million euros from Everton to the Red Devils. In addition, José Mourinho committed his old companion, Nemanja Matic. The defensive midfielder changed by some 45 million euros from the archrival Chelsea to Manchester. A further 35 million made the United bosses loose for Victor Lindelöf from Benfica Lisbon. The 23-year-old Swedish national player is considered to be one of the most promising domestic defenders in the near future. In addition to these obligations, however, there was also a significant departure. The club icon Wayne Rooney had no future in Manchester and moved to his youth club Everton.
The preparatory games went through for Manchester United. So the Red Devils tested against the Spanish top clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona. The game against Madrid ended with a 1-1 draw, against the Catalans they lost with a tight 1-0. A win was won against Valerenga IF Oslo and Sampdoria Genoa. The first grade was in the Supercup against Real Madrid, where the winner of the Champions league met the winner of the Europaleague. The winner of the Royal Class Real Madrid earned a 2-1 victory against Manchester.
West Ham United has been a big success in this transfer window. The Hammers strengthened themselves with well-known players and therefore want to play this season around the European places. The most expensive transfer was Marko Arnautovic. The 28-year-old offensive player switched from the Ligakon competitor Stoke City to the Hammers and broke two records. Arnautovic is not only the most expensive new entry in the 122-year history of West Ham, but also the most expensive Austrian footballer of all time. In addition to Arnautovic, the Hammers also signed the striker Chicharito from Bayer Leverkusen, the English team goalkeeper Joe Hart and the lawyer Pablo Zabaleta from Manchester City. The team of coach Slaven Bilic has thus improved qualitatively in all team parts.
The results of the preparatory games were rather sobering. Only against Fulham the team won 2-1. The two test matches against Werder Bremen ended with a 1: 0 defeat and a 2: 2 draw. In the last match, the Hammers beat Manchester City 3-0.
