West Ham can dream of a big result when hosting Manchester United on Saturday, but the Red Devils will be reeling from the defeat they incurred in the Champions League.
Premier League 2020/21 season
Date: Saturday November, 5th
Kickoff: 18:30 pm
Venue: London Stadium
West Ham will get a chance to make it four league wins on the bounce when United come to town, with Fulham, Sheffield and Aston Villa all having fallen to them during that run.
Angelo Ogbonna and Jarrod Bowen were their heroes last time out, scoring either side of a Jack Grealish goal for Villa as the Hammers moved up to fifth on the standings.
A win here will provisionally take them as far as third on the table and having won their last two league home games against this opposition, they get a chance now to make it three in a row for the first time since December 1977.
Manchester United’s come-from-behind 3-2 victory at the St. Marys made it eight successive league wins on the road for the first time in the history of the club.
Edinson Cavani came off the bench to ignite a fightback for the Red Devils, scoring twice and assisting another as they claimed the victory at Southampton.
The loss to Paris Saint Germain last time out in midweek is a momentary setback, but another win at the London Stadium would see them win their first five away games of a league season for the first time since the 1985-86 season!
With up to 2,000 fans reportedly set to be welcomed back to a Premier League game for the first time since March, expect a tensed affair here.
Michail Antonio is rated as doubtful yet after missing the Villa game last time out.
Andriy Yarmolenko should return from Covid, but will make do with a place on the bench.
Luke Shaw is a doubt with a hamstring.
Marcus Rashford pulled up with a shoulder injury against PSG but could return here.
West Ham have been drawing at half time and winning at fulltime in their last three Premier League games.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Man Utd’s last four away games in the Premier League.

David Moyes will be intent on upsetting his former side, and West Ham are great value to continue their recent impressive patch. They are a huge 13/5 for a victory but we’d rather be opposing the goals in what should be a tight game.
Under 2.5 goals (11/10 for odds) appeals on that front, and is our pick from this encounter.
