Manchester United will host West Ham United in what should be an easy three points for David Moyes and the home side. That said, there have been some games earlier in the season where you could have looked at them before the game as am ‘easy three points’, only for United to stutter across the finish line barely with a point or even a defeat.

So far this season, Manchester United have just as many defeats as the whole of last season and find themselves eighth in the League, 10 points behind leaders Arsenal. That said, they are on a good three-game run right now, beating Stoke in the Capital One Cup quarterfinal midweek. A good League result away to Aston Villa last weekend followed on from Champions League progression.

The last two League home games for David Moyes did not go all that well, though, and after losing both and not scoring a goal in either, that means you have to go all the way back to the beginning of November for their last home victory.

Danny Welbeck stepped up last weekend with two quick early goals to see if the Villa threat and now Wayne Rooney should also be back after missing the midweek fixture.

Sam Allardyce and West Ham also booked their place in the semifinal of the Capital One Cup with two goals in the last 10 minutes, reversing Spurs’ lead. That was the second time he masterminded victory against Tottenham on their own patch. I wouldn’t rule out a tough game for the home side again. The key will be early pressure and putting the game away early, just like a week ago against Villa.
