Having tightened up at the back since their opening day thrashing, Al Hain-Cole expects the Hammers to hold strong against Solskjaer's men

West Ham have the chance to move three points clear of Manchester United in the Premier league table when the sides meet at the London Stadium on Sunday.

The Hammers have recovered from their opening 5-0 defeat at Manchester City to take eight points from the subsequent four games, leaving them with a points total that is bettered by only the top two.

West Ham vs Manchester United latest odds

Having won two and lost just one of their last four home games against this opposition, they are available at 5/2 (3.50) with bet365 to pull off an impressive victory here.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are also on eight points after last weekend's solid 1-0 win over Leicester, and are 11/10 (2.10) favourites to come out on top in this one.

The guests have drawn each of their last three away matches in the league, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them being held to another stalemate.

West Ham vs Manchester United  team news

Michail Antonio and Winston Reid are both long-term injury absentees, while Arthur Masuaku is suspended after getting sent off in the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last week.

Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are long-term absentees, with Luke Shaw, Daniel James, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial all doubtful due to minor injuries.

Manuel Pellegrini's team has certainly tightened up at the back since leaking five goals on the opening day of the season against his former club, conceding just twice in five matches and none in the most recent three.

They will therefore back themselves to hold strong against a Red Devils team that has found the net just four times in six league games on the road, and is missing a number of key attacking players.

West Ham vs Manchester United predictions

In fact, odds of 6/5 (2.20) look particularly generous on no more than two goals being scored for West Ham's fifth game in six, as well as Manchester United's ninth in 11 in all competitions.
