Manchester United face West Ham United in the Premier League at the London Stadium this evening. United are unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions, winning their last five Premier League matches in their chance to break into the top four this season, which is still looking very likely at this moment in time. United and the Hammers have met twice already this season – both at Old Trafford. Their league encounter finished 1-1 with the Hammers taking the lead inside the first two minutes of the match and Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalising to rescue a point for United. The two teams then faced each other three days later at Old Trafford again, this time in the EFL Cup with United winning 4-1 – taking the lead inside the first two minutes themselves, with an equaliser coming ten minutes before the break through former United Academy striker Ashley Fletcher. In the second half, United ended the London club’s hopes of earning a semi-final place in the cup with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial both scoring twice in the victory. Jose Mourinho will be looking for more of the same in the first match against the Hammers at the London Stadium with a sixth Premier League win on the cards.
