West Ham vs Man United: Premier League preview and prediction

The fixture will be the first top-flight league game to be held at a ground based in Tier 2 of the Government’s coronavirus restrictions since the national lockdown ended on Wednesday, meaning 2,000 spectators will be allowed to attend. 

The Hammers will be hoping to give them the ideal welcome by keeping up their excellent recent form, arriving on the back of three successive wins. 

United, meanwhile, were beaten by PSG in the Champions League in midweek, but had picked up a confidence-boosting win in the Premier League last weekend thanks to a terrific comeback from 2-0 down against Southampton. 

West Ham vs Man United prediction: 2-1 home win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have won three in a row in the league but their first-half display against Southampton suggests an in-form West Ham side could get at them. 

West Ham vs Aston Villa is scheduled for a 5:30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, December 5, 2020.

The match will be held in front of a limited crowd of 2,000 fans at the London Stadium.

TV channel: Monday’s match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League. 

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via SkyGo and the Sky Sports app.

Michail Antonio is back from injury but was substituted at half-time on his return against Aston Villa last weekend so Sebastian Haller could get the nod, while Said Benrahma is pushing for his first Premier League start after another impressive cameo.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be without Marcus Rashford after the forward was forced off with a shoulder problem in the defeat to PSG, though Odion Ighalo made his return as a substitute in that fixture to boost the Norwegian’s attacking options.
