Manchester United Vs West Ham United Preview, Predicted Lineups, Team News, Key Men And Odds

After a long wait, Premier League football is back in action. Jose Mourinho’s first season didn’t go down well as Manchester United found themselves confined in the midst of draws and injuries. However, redemption time has come as the Red Devils will entertain West Ham United in their first match of the new season.

After winning the Europa League and EFL Cup last campaign, expectations have levelled up and the Portuguese gaffer will be looking to aim higher this season.

“The Special One” has been particularly splendid in his second season through out his career as at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea again the Portuguese gaffer has done the trick and he will be under the pressure to deliver.

West Ham have shaped up pretty well with a number of signings with the addition of Marko Arnautovic and former Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez. The Hammers had a disappointing season and Slaven Bilic needs to get things right this time around to get back the trust and support.

Predicted Lineup And Injury News

West Ham United

Key Players

Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku

The price tag attached to this player would be very hard to ignore. Lukaku showed his touches in the preseason and also opened his account against Real Madrid in the Super Cup. His physical play and pinpoint finishing would make it tough for the Hammers.

West Ham United


Back in his old hunting ground. The Mexican is known for his spontaneous display inside the opponent box and Bilic is hopeful the striker would answer all the questions with his goal scoring skills.
