PL Match Preview : Manchester United vs West Ham

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Jose Mourinho recorded his biggest managerial win in exactly 12 months when Manchester United thrashed Feyenoord 4-0 on Thursday but his side must now transfer that form into the Premier League where it really counts.

West Ham are in an awful place and should really be there for the taking for United on Sunday. However, Slaven Bilic’s side have a good recent record against United and most notably beat them 3-2 in their last ever game at Upton Park last season.

How their fans wish they were still playing there and not at the London Stadium.

United have only won one of their last six league matches and need to get back to winning ways in order to avoid losing further ground on their title rivals. They are already nine points behind Chelsea and cannot afford to lose more points.

The last two matches between these two sides at Old Trafford have ended in draws, but United really have to put West Ham to the sword this weekend. Only Hull (27) have conceded more goals than the Hammers in the Premier League this season and United should be looking to inflict further misery on Bilic here.


PL Match Preview : Arsenal vs Bournemouth

Arsenal have now drawn each of their last three matches in all competitions after battling to a 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in midweek. Arsene Wenger needs to get his side back on track to avoid slipping off the pace with the league leaders any more.

They are three points off Chelsea but they could be further behind by the time they play on Sunday.

Bournemouth pulled of a 1-0 win away to Stoke last time out to end a winless run of three matches.

They have lost 2-0 in both of their encounters with Arsenal in the past and, with key players unavailable this weekend, they will struggle to avoid defeat again.

Arsenal – Arsene Wenger is reportedly planning to give Alexis Sanchez a winter break in order to keep him fresh, which means others could profit in advanced areas this weekend.
