September 21, 2021
football predictions

Just a few days after they played in the Premier League, these two sides will play again in the third round of the EFL Cup at Old Trafford. Thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo, and Jesse Lingard’s goals, Red Devils won the last encounter 2-1, but it was one rather exciting game, where both sides had their chances to win. While many think that EFL Cup isn’t a highly respected competition for major Premier League clubs, we feel that fans will see one interesting game tonight.

Manchester United

Surely, Manchester United fans can be finally happy with their board, as this season, they finally look like a serious contender for one of the top places in the Premier League. The Red Devils signed Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer, and after the first five rounds in Premier League, they have 13 points. For this game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will rotate a bit and rest to his leading players, but his squad is very deep, and no doubt that starters will be in competitive mode.

West Ham United

After some fantastic performances at the start of the season, West Ham is now in three games without a win streak. Also, West Ham has European games this season, and they managed to get an impressive win against Dinamo Zagreb. Keeping in mind that David Moyes’s team had some injury problems, we think that they are much better than position on the table shows at the moment and that they beat every PL team when they have a good day.

Team News

As we already suggested, both managers are expected to rest to the most valuable players so that Manchester will start without Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford. On the other hand, Moyes can’t count on Winston Ried, but without any doubt, he will rotate his starting eleven.

H2H Comparison and Trends

These two teams played 126 times in the past, and Manchester won 62 times, with 30 draws, while West Ham won 34 games. The last four games won Manchester United, while the last Hammers win came in the 2019 season.
