If you were to single out some teams that have been disappointing in the Premier League so far this season, you would surely think of Man United and West Ham.
The first, because Mourinho is always expected to produce a title challenge, yet he finds himself far from it, and the latter, because they’re a lot closer to relegation than European places.

FT Result: Man United 1.45 or 9/20 Draw 4.75 or 15/4 West Ham 7.50 or 13/2
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.70 or 7/10 Under 2.10 or 11/10
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.90 or 10/11 No 1.90 or 10/11
Man United’s season isn’t going as most people would expect. They are struggling in the Europa League, not sure of qualification before their last encounter of the group, and only sit 6th in the Premier League with 19 points.
The general impression their football leaves is that they “almost” produce what’s necessary – just like in last week’s encounter against Arsenal, where they dominated the game for 88 minutes, just to concede in one of the last attacks of the game.
Home games against non-top 6 clubs are now must-wins for the Red Devils, who seem to be looking at Champions League participation rather than a title challenge.
Meanwhile, West Ham aren’t looking great either. Although it seemed like they might pick up pace at one point during the season, they’ve now failed to win their last 3 games and are sitting 17th, just one point above Hull.
Their season and form is going from one disappointment to another, but their last game was truly hectic – they were leading Tottenham 2-1 away from home only to concede twice in the last 4 minutes, to turn a splendid win into a stunning loss.
Manchester United vs West Ham Betting Tips
Good ideas are bets like “both teams to score” and the home team to score at least once, while also considering Mata, Ibrahimovic or Antonio as possible goalscoarers.
Also, we expect at least 3 or 4 yellow cards in the game, especially since United are missing Smalling and Bailly, their top central defenders.
