Live Premier League
I've got a secret to admit.
I backed Manchester United to win the Premier League this week at 20/1. I've now had two bites at them for the title, also at 20/1 (staked in July - read here why) and this one. There is a possibility I'm throwing good money away but United remain an elite side when all is clicking. Win their game in hand and they are two points off top spot.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have rekindled the hot form from last season where they consistently took points off their top-four rivals and beat Manchester City home and away. A win at West Ham would be their fourth Premier League victory in a row and their ninth convective away success. A few areas still remain a concern, Anthony Martial I'm looking at you, but United are showing an ability to break down low-block defensives now with Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and of course Bruno Fernandes adding guile to an electric attack.
West Ham have actually played quite poorly in their last two home games with Fulham and Aston Villa - they won't get away with such sloppy performance levels here. Away win.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 0-2 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
- West Ham have won their last two Premier League home games against Manchester United - they've not won three in a row at home against the Red Devils in the top-flight since a run of four between January 1974-December 1977.
- After a run of 11 wins in 12 Premier League games against West Ham (D1) between 2008-2014, Manchester United have won just three of their last 11 against the Hammers in the competition (D5 L3).
- This will be just the fourth Premier League meeting between West Ham and Man Utd with the Hammers starting above the Red Devils, following a 0-0 draw in August 1998, and 2-1 wins for Man Utd in August 1995 and September 2014.
- Manchester United have won each of their last eight Premier League away games, their longest winning away run in their league history. The Red Devils are looking to win their first five games on the road in a single league campaign for the first time since 1985-86.
- West Ham have scored the opening goal in five consecutive Premier League games, their longest such run since March 2006 (also a run of five). Only in April 2002 have the Hammers previously scored the opening goal in more consecutive matches in the competition (a run of seven).
- Manchester United have won more points from losing positions than any other Premier League side this season (12), coming from behind to win all four of their away games so far in 2020-21.
