This weekend at the Transfer Tavern our punters get a chance to watch two of the sides who have hugely underachieved so far this season, as West Ham face off against Manchester United.
Slaven Bilic’s side have been so underwhelming compared to last term where they were able to gain the reputation of beating the ‘bigger’ teams, earning victories over the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City.
This fixture last year was a moment of history for the Irons, as they played and beat Manchester United in their last ever game at the Boleyn Ground, with Winston Reid scoring the winning header that gave so much optimism coming into this campaign.
Now, the Irons are really under the cosh, sitting just one place above the relegation spots. Super Slav’s Army have been unlucky in recent games, including the recent game with Tottenham.
Leading Spurs 2-1 until the 89th minute, the east London drinkers propping up the bar were forced to watch their side lose 3-2 after two from Harry Kane.
Man Utd themselves have been underwhelming compared to the investments made by the club in the summer window. This game could be the Hammers’ best chance to prove they can still come good this term.
With that, we feel that this starting West Ham XI can shock United this weekend
