EM – Match previews and how to watch West Ham vs Man Utd on September 19th

0

Manchester United face West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday, in the first of two meetings with the Hammers in just over three days.

David Moyes’ men are our opponents in the third round of the Carabao Cup on September 22nd at Old Trafford, but next is a trip to the capital.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will strive to get back on the road to victory after the disappointment over one last defeat against Young Boys in Europe in the middle of the week.

As our countdown to the game begins, here’s everything you need to know to catch the action, miss Key Man West Ham, and more …

The game starts and will start at 2:00 PM PDT Broadcast live in the UK on the Sky Sports Main Event and the Sky Sports Premier League.
As usual, you can use MUTV to follow the entire set-up of the game and the analysis after the game, as well as the live radio commentary of the game. The program starts at 12:55 p.m. BST.

Solskjaer will provide a more detailed update on his roster during the pre-game press conference on Friday, although Marcus Rashford, Amad and Alex Telles are expected to be missing. Dean Henderson and Phil Jones are on the verge of returning after playing for the Under23s at Arsenal last week, while Scott McTominay was recently pictured in training while recovering from groin surgery. Edinson Cavani has been absent from the last two games due to a problem at Carrington.

West Ham are missing out on recently named Premier League Player of the Month for August, Michail Antonio. The Jamaican international was sent off after receiving two bookings in Saturday’s goalless draw with Southampton and is now suspended from one game. Apart from the injured Winston Reid, who has not played for the Hammers since March 2018, Moyes has no further availability concerns, although the Londoners will have to travel to Croatia for a Europa League game with Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday.

United leads currently in the Premier League due to goal difference with Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton after winning three and drawing one of our first four games. A 1-1 draw in Southampton is our only slip up so far and we are the division’s top scorer alongside local rivals Manchester City.

West Ham led the emerging table after Matchday 2, after impressive wins over Newcastle (4-2) and Leicester (4-1). Ties with Crystal Palace and the Saints ensued, but the Hammers are still undefeated as they try to repeat last season’s eye-catching sixth place. After a difficult settling-in period, the Hammers have turned the London stadium into something of a fortress, with only Manchester City and Chelsea losing fewer home games (four against West Hams five) since the start of last season.

Ronaldo’s return made headlines, but that was an excellent team performance! Take a look at the extended highlights now …

One of these defeats came in December 2020 against the Reds. Productive midfielder Tomas Soucek brought the home side together to take the first half in front of 2,000 Hammers supporters, but United recovered after the break and won 3-1 on goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

This is one of only two wins we have achieved at the London Stadium, the other came in January 2017. Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on the occasion after Sofiane Feghouli’s early red card. West Ham has also beaten us twice at Stratford since opening in 2016, the other game ended goalless.

In Antonio’s absence, new signing Nikola Vlasic could be given a first start. The former Everton man played Southampton for the last half-hour of the weekend and scored in the most recent international break for Croatia. Soucek is always a goal threat from midfield and Said Benrahma is also one to watch out for.

The Algerian highlighted the championship with Brentford, but needed some time after the change last October to adapt to the leading group. The former Nice striker has already improved his 2020/21 goal record and only Antonio, Paul Pogba and Mohamed Salah have scored more goals so far this season.

United are unbeaten in 28 away Premier League games, the longest streak without an away defeat in English league history.

We only conceded 19 goals and conceded 13 goals in this run.

For our last Premier League loss on a Sunday, you’d have to go back to November 2020 – we’ve since won 11 and drew 5 of the high-class games we played on Sunday.
