Christian Eriksen, Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial continue to be out injured.

Manchester United vs West Ham Prediction

Both teams will come into this game high on confidence after earning victories in their respective games over the weekend, however, Manchester United look in a completely different frame of mind and are operating at a pretty high level.

Moreover, they won a trophy over the weekend and will be looking to continue their upward momentum, thus showing more urgency to get a result.

We think Manchester United will win 3-1 at Old Trafford.
