Erik ten Hag’s revenge

The last time United faced West Ham, they were thoroughly embarrassed on 23 December at London Stadium, with Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus scoring within five minutes of each other to sink The Reds 2-0.

With the club one point behind West Ham in the table, it is a game that could see United jump to sixth in the Premier League as they attempt to catch up to those competing for Champions League places next season.

Ten Hag will no doubt be looking to get revenge over David Moyes come Sunday afternoon after the 2-0 drubbing in December as United look to continue their unbeaten start to 2024.
