Manchester United’s renaissance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still going strong. The legendary Norwegian strike has transformed the Red Devils into a formidable team. After taking the wheel just before the New Year, Solskjaer won 10 of his first 13 matches as United’s manager. This includes the stunning comeback against PSG in the Champions League, with United setting up a clash with the mighty Barcelona.
Currently sitting comfortably on the sixth position on the PL table, Manchester is facing West Ham United at home in the next round of the Premier League. It will be a true test for Solskjaer’s troops which will probably depend on how the team plays against Barcelona in the CL. West Ham United is not in the same league as Man U, yet they’re a tricky side that could beat anyone. What makes the match even more exciting is the reason that West Ham won the last clash with Man. United in the PL, defeating the Red Devils back in September 3-1 at home.
At the moment, United is hitting its stride under Solskjaer. Encouraged by great performances from Rashford, Lukaku, and Pogba in recent months, the team will surely want to win this match and overtake Arsenal on the fifth spot. The Gunners are currently sitting two points ahead of the Red Devils, but this could all change this coming weekend.
There’s no question that United will do everything in its power to win this game. They need the win to keep the pressure on Arsenal, Tottenham, and even Chelsea on the third spot. United’s dreams of a new title were shattered under Jose Mourinho, but Solskjaer has revitalized the team, putting it in position to fight for a CL spot. The H2H record is also in favour of Manchester, so this match will most likely end with a home win for the Old Trafford heroes.
If you ask us, Manchester United has this one in the bag. Bookies are giving the Red Devils odds of 20/49 to win the game with West Ham standing at 13/2. A Manchester win isn’t going to give you a solid return, while West Ham’s odds are too high. But, check the other markets – there are some great odds up for grabs.
