Premier League preview: Manchester United vs West Ham


Manchester United will return to action in the FA Cup fifth round as they take on West Ham United at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have defeated Watford and Liverpool to progress thus far, while the Hammers have got the best of Stockport County and Doncaster Rovers to reach this stage of the tournament.

The Red Devils were flying high when they destroyed Southampton 9-0 but they couldn’t continue their brilliant form against Everton on Saturday.

United failed to secure full points to reignite their title race with Manchester City, despite taking a 2-0 lead in the first half. The Toffees struck back after the interval to level the scores at 2-2, but the home side looked on course for victory when Scott McTominay popped up with a 70th-minute goal.

However, the Old Trafford fans were left disappointed when Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the leveller in the 95th minute of the game to make sure the spoils were shared.

The Manchester side will now turn their attention to the FA Cup which they won the last time in 2016 following their 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, West Ham were also not very convincing last weekend and suffered a goal-less draw against Fulham in the top-flight.

David Moyes’ side have enjoyed an impressive Premier League campaign so far and are currently just a point behind fourth-placed Liverpool, having secured 11 victories from 23 matches.
