Soccer – Manchester United vs. West Ham

Manchester United vs West Ham UnitedManchester United will start their premier league campaign against West Ham United

Manchester United is a team capable of winning the Premier League this season. The Red Devils will have home field advantage in this match.  The addition of Romelu Lukaku is going to help out. He will step into the role that Wayne Rooney had before being transferred.

The big summer signing really feels like it’s creating a huge jump for the Devils. They are favored by a goal and a half against a West Ham team that figures to be better than it was last year when it was threatened by relegation for most of the term.

West Ham United F.C. has some problems at the back right now that need to be fixed. The team has played two games in the preseason. One match was a 3-3 draw against Altonaer FC von 1893.  The other match was 3-0 loss to Manchester City.

Manchester United was in good form this preseason. They played well in the International Cup of Champions. However, when they played a top notch team in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid, the club was beaten 2-1 and was never really in the fixture. Manchester United isn’t going to blow a lot of teams out by three goals, but it’ll win a lot of matches and play a lot of unders. This could be the day that Lukaku gets his first goal for his new team on the grandest stage. Even with the Hammers having a terrible defense, the under still feels like the right play to us. We give the edge in this match to the Red Devils.

This Barclays Premier League action from Old Trafford will take place at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, August 13, 2017. The match will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
