Manchester Untied will be aiming for a second victory at Old Trafford this week when they welcome a tricky West Ham side on Sunday.
The Hammers enter the match fresh off a victory over Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League, a triumph in continental competition.
The Red Devils, who are currently sixth in the Premier League rankings, will enter this weekend’s round of games just one point out of first place. They have also played one fewer game than both Tottenham and Newcastle United, who are currently third and fourth, respectively.
Since their 2-1 loss to Brighton on the opening day, United has gone unbeaten in front of their own supporters. With impressive wins over Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham all coming at home, they will be confident going into this match, especially given that West Ham hasn’t won at Old Trafford in the Premier League since 2007.
After losing their first three domestic matches this season, the Hammers fell to the bottom of the Premier League standings following a 2-0 home loss to Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Irons have truly thrived so far this season in Europe, winning each of their five Europa Conference League games—a streak that continues on Thursday night.
The Hammers won the EFL Cup last season, with Lanzini once again scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 triumph, so they will know they are capable of taking something away from Sunday’s match, despite prior Premier League trips to Old Trafford being mainly unproductive.
