West Ham vs Manchester United prediction

West Ham United and Manchester United face each other in the FA Cup replay at Boleyn Ground. A place in the FA Cup semis is at stake and it remains to be seen if the Hammers are capable of claiming yet another major scalp in the 2015/2016 campaign.

Ten-game unbeaten run

West Ham United have been producing outstanding performances this season ever since Slaven Bilic took over the reins. The Hammers have been established themselves as a nightmare for the top-table sides and they are certainly capable of making life difficult for Manchester United in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay. West Ham are on a ten-game unbeaten run in all competitions and they head into the game following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Arsenal in the Premier League. Slaven Bilic’s troops have been scoring goals for fun of late and a man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Andy Carroll, who scored a hat-trick in the 3-3 draw with Arsene Wenger’s troops. It has to be noted that West Ham are undefeated in last three encounters against Manchester United.

James Collins, Diafra Sakho and Alex Song are all sidelined with injury, but coach Slaven Bilic has no other selection worries ahead of the visit of Manchester United. Andy Carroll should keep his place in the starting line-up.

Heavy loss at White Hart Lane

By beating the likes of Sheffield United, Derby County and Shrewsbury Town Manchester United set up a meeting with West Ham United in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, with Anthony Martial’s late goal securing the replay for the Red Devils. As things stand now, Louis van Gaal’s men are unlikely to book their place in the Champions League, meaning that they will give their best to save the season by winning the FA Cup trophy. The Red Devils head into the game against Slaven Bilic’s charges following a heavy 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur and it has to be noted that they could have suffered even heavier defeat at the White Hart Lane. Aforementioned attacker Anthony Martial should keep his place in the starting XI and the French attacker is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back line in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay at Boleyn Ground.

Captain Wayne Rooney could make his return against West Ham United, but Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger remain in the treatment room. Full back Matteo Darmian is widely expected to return to the starting XI.

Quick Facts

  • West Ham shared the spoils with their rivals in each of their last four games
  • Hammers are undefeated in last 16 home games at home
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in previous three meetings between the two teams
  • Manchester United suffered three defeats in last four away matches
  • Red Devils recorded their last win at Boleyn Ground on 22 March, 2014

West Ham vs Manchester United betting tip

All eyes will be at Boleyn Ground when West Ham United and Manchester United face each other in the FA Cup replay. As I have already mentioned, the Hammers are tough to beat at home and seeing that the Red Devils were totally outclassed by Tottenham in their last league game, I am tempted to put my money on the capital club this time out.
