Manchester United might have Cristiano Ronaldo although they might not have things their own way at the London Stadium despite the fact that Michail Antonio will be missing for West Ham. The striker was sent off at St Mary’s last weekend and will be suspended for the clash against the Red Devils which is clearly a negative for David Moyes’ side after starting the season so strongly.

West Ham won their opening matches against Newcastle and Leicester, scoring four goals on each occasion. However, draws against Palace and Southampton have followed, with the bookies making them the big outsiders to claim a victory and it might be that Andriy Yarmolenko is deployed as the central striker in the absence of Antonio.

We think Manchester United are trading at short odds to win this clash based on the fact that they struggled to a 1-1 draw away to Southampton and were somewhat fortunate to land a win at Wolves in their last game on the road. It will be interesting to see what shape they’re in after a Champions League clash against Young Boys.

On the flip side, West Ham will have returned home from a long trip to Croatia and it could well be that participating in the Europa League has a knock-on effect when it comes to their domestic form. Moyes doesn’t have a lot of squad depth and we’ll take them to scramble a point in this clash.
