Manchester United will be hoping to leapfrog West Ham in the Premier League table when the sides meet at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Ralf Rangnick’s men are two points adrift of their fourth-placed opponents going into the weekend, having played one game fewer.

Manchester United vs West Ham latest odds

Beaten 1-0 by Wolves in their last league home game, Man Utd are available at 17/20 (1.85) with bet365 to bounce back with an important victory here.

However, West Ham have already won on this ground this season in September’s Carabao Cup clash and are available at 3/1 (4.0) to come out on top once again.

Just one of the 10 league games at this ground this season has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on this one finishing up all-square.

Manchester United vs West Ham first goalscorer

Cristiano Ronaldo is 10/3 (4.33) favourite to open the scoring against a team he has fired past six times in eight previous encounters, with Mason Greenwood priced at 6/1 (7.0) after his goal at Brentford in midweek.

Top scorer Michail Antonio is the visitors' 13/2 (7.50) favourite to break the deadlock, although Jarrod Bowen looks a better bet at 10/1 (11.0) following four goals in his last three fixtures.

Manchester United vs West Ham preview

While the Red Devils will have been delighted to score three goals and take maximum points away to Brentford, Ivan Toney’s late goal means they have now gone five league games without a clean sheet.

This defensive fragility is likely to be tested by David Moyes’ men, who have not failed to score in seven games in all competitions - hitting the net 15 times in that run.

However, the visitors have also kept just one clean sheet and conceded 11 goals in their last six league matches, making a high-scoring game seem likely.

Manchester United vs West Ham tips & predictions

Indeed, odds of 20/21 (1.95) look like solid value on over 2.5 goals being scored and both teams getting on target for Manchester United’s fourth league game in five and a fifth in six for West Ham.

All odds correct at time of writing.
