Manchester United face West Ham in Round 3 of the the English Football League Cup on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils have won their last four over the Hammers, so I am backing them to win and see over 2.5 goals. Man U snuck past Wolverhampton in a 1-0 win away from home, before trouncing Newcastle 4-1 at home in Cristiano Ronaldo’s return. 

This form was short-lived as they suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League. Though, they quickly returned to the winners list with a 2-1 win away to West Ham in the league on Sunday. Ronaldo scored his fourth goal since returning to Man U while Jesse Lingard nailed the game winner a minute from the final whistle. 

Striker Marcus Rashford will miss the match with a shoulder injury, while fellow forward Edison Cavani will also be sidelined due to injury.

West Ham have enjoyed a bright start to the season. The Hammers were held a scoreless draw against Southampton, before recording a historic 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League. A narrow 2-1 loss to Manchester United followed, with midfielder Mark Noble missing a late penalty. Said Benrahma gave West Ham the lead in the 30th minute.

West Ham boss David Moyes is expected to make several changes and rest players after a congested opening few weeks.

Verdict

Manchester United have an impressive record over West Ham and have plenty of goalscoring options. I’m tipping them to win and over 2.5 goals.
