Manchester United vs West Ham Prediction, Betting Tips, Preview & Live Stream Info ahead of this week’s EFL Cup fixture.
Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United host West Ham United for the second time in the space of a few days on Wednesday. The two met on Sunday in the Premier League, and ended up drawing 1-1.
This time, both teams will look to secure their place in the next round of the EFL Cup. Manchester United are under immense pressure after a poor start to their season, and Mourinho cannot afford to crash out of the competition just yet.
Old Trafford will be expecting the Red Devils to bounce back with a win against the Hammers, and it should be a fiery contest. The home side have drawn four league games in a row for the first time since 1990, and Wednesday’s cup game is a great opportunity for them to get their season back on track.
José Mourinho will be without some of his best players for the crunch clash against West Ham. Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are suspended. Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling are still sidelined with injuries. Smalling and Bailly have been the best defenders at United under Mourinho, and the duo will be a huge miss for the home side. Fellaini and Pogba have done better than the other United midfielders, as well, and will be missed.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Rojo, Blind, Shaw; Herrera, Schneiderlin; Martial, Rooney, Mata; Ibrahimovic
