Man Utd betting preview with Betway

Betway betting preview

A new year brings renewed optimism.

And with that West Ham United welcome Jose Mourinho's Manchester United to the London Stadium firmly intent on kicking-off 2017 with a bang.

Both sides come into the game in good form but it's The Red Devils who are favourites to clinch the three points on Monday evening.

West Ham are 17/4 to win, while United are 8/11 to come out on top. A draw is 13/5.

Recent history suggests that goals will be in the offing as the last goalless fixture between the sides came in 2015.

You can back both teams to score at 3/4 while 'Over 2.5 Goals' is priced at 4/5.

West Ham have not lost to United in the league since September 2014 and memorably beat the Mancunians 3-2 in the last ever game at the Boleyn Ground in May last year.

A repeat of that scoreline is 33/1 in our 'Correct Score' market.

The Hammers' recent defensive solidity will be tested by Zlatan Ibrahimovic who scored in the majority of his appearances in December.

A deft Ibrahimovic header cancelled out Diafro Sakho's early strike when the sides played out a 1-1 draw in the league in late November. Another 1-1 result is 6/1.

Manager Slaven Bilic will be keen to test his side against Mourinho's again, with the Croat having only lost once in three league games against United.

The opening goal could prove crucial in the game and West Ham are 9/5 to score first, with no goal available at 10/1.

Mark Noble, Michail Antonio and the returning Andy Carroll have all chipped in with goals in recent weeks as the Hammers enjoyed their best month of the season in December.

Bilic's men score the majority of their goals in the second half and you can get 21/20 for the Hammers to score against United in the second 45 minutes. A West Ham goal in the opening half is at 13/8.

With the attacking talent available to Mourinho, West Ham will have to keep things tight at the back to come away with a positive result.

Buoyed by the performances of Winston Reid and Cheikhou Kouyaté, West Ham are 4/1 to keep a clean sheet while a Hammers win to nil is 13/2.
