Today’s flight will be focused on the upcoming contest between West Ham and Manchester United. The home team will be looking to put a dampener on Man United’s recent return to form while maintaining their unbeaten streak. The Red Devils seek to stay on top – something they have not been able to do for a long time. I’ll start the engines, let’s investigate.

The current constitution

Flying Start for the Hammers

Although most of the headlines coming into this match may be focused on Manchester United’s return to form and to the top of the league, West Ham have shown a galactic improvement over last season. This year’s Premier League efforts got off to a rocketing start with an exciting 4-2 win over Newcastle and – in part thanks to a captain’s medal-worthy performance by Michail Antonio – looked even better in their 4-1 win over Leicester.

They seemed to hit the breaks a little in dual draws against Crystal Palace and Southampton, but they remain unbeaten and, in my opinion, a potential asteroid field for Manchester United.

Ronaldo Ignites Sparkle in Manchester Squad

They announced their return to the Premier League with a dominant 5-1 victory over Leeds, highlighted by a phenomenal Bruno Fernandes hat trick – before falling back to Earth with a 1-1 draw against Southampton. That’s the same side that tied up West Ham in their last outing.

Just as concerning for the Man United crew was their early close calls against Wolves, despite a very tough 1-0 win. The recently resigned Ronaldo was the focus of many singing fans. But they would have to wait until their 4-1 follow up against Newcastle to see what the Portuguese legend was capable of, alongside a general return to form for the team.

Head to Head

If I am to simply run the numbers through the ship’s computers for my Premier League betting tips UK, what you end up with is a clear advantage for Manchester United. They won the last three games and have an overall winning margin of two dozen games.

However, West Ham maintains the ability to surprise. They did so in 2019 and 2018, winning 2-0 and 3-1 in the Premier League. They even won in a 3-2 thriller in 2016. That means that for the majority of the last five years, the Hammers have bested Manchester United at least once in the Premier League – meaning you’d need space madness to count them completely out.

Our Betting Tip for Today

While West Ham certainly have the potential to upset Manchester United here – and I think they will put up an excellent fight, with both teams looking likely to score – my prediction is that Manchester United will emerge victorious.

Manchester United to Win in Back-and-Forth Contest

Everything from their recent performances and the historical stats tell me that Manchester United are likely to walk away the winners here. I would have been tempted to go for a draw in my Premier League betting tips UK for today, but history tells us that these games tend to have decisive winners – and that is no knock on West Ham. They’ve performed admirably this season so far and have bested United in the past.

However, with what we have seen from the Red Devils against Newcastle – particularly with Ronaldo’s performance – I have to give them the final captain’s nod. I would say though that if you’re looking to enhance your odds, then including both teams to score too could be a quality bet. Man United have looked defensively vulnerable in parts of every game so far this season, and the Hammers are certainly talented enough to take advantage of that and bring them a conceding goal – if not, in my opinion, likely overall victory.
