Welcome to our West Ham United vs Manchester United predictions and preview. Manchester United will be desperate to win this after their bad performances in recent weeks. As I write this they are hours away from potential elimination from the Champions League. West Ham are just six points away from the relegation zone, and losing this could see them just 3 points away from it. So Manchester United should not expect an easy ride.
