Man. United vs West Ham by FP

Louis Van Gaal faced fresh criticism this week from former players and pundits alike as his team continue to underperform and his training methods are again being called into question. Rumour has it that his training sessions are boring, repetitive and his players hate them - nicknaming them 'groundhog day'. His players certainly seem scared to take a risk in case they lose the ball, which leads to a lot of backwards and sideways passing and plenty of possession but little by the way of clear goal scoring chances.


West Ham had a good start to the season but are now performing to expectation - they should be a 10-12th placed team come the end of the season. Manager Slaven Bilic has overseen a few good results, but his team are unpredictable and have turned in a few bad performances over the last few weeks - their last four matches have seen two defeats (4-1 to Tottenham, 2-0 to Watford) and two draws (1-1 with West Brom, 1-1 with Everton). Interestingly their two defeats were away from home, with the two draws at home.


West Ham are always capable of scoring with players like Zarate and Lanzini in the line up but are likely to be without strikers Sakho, Valencia and Payet which may blunt their attack slightly. With the negativity surrounding Manchester United at the moment I think people are now in danger of actually underestimating the Red Devils and the players they have at their disposal. They are going to view West Ham as a team they can attack and it would not surprise me at all if they hit a few goals here. Rooney is out injured - which is not a bad thing considering his recent form and his absence may actually improve Manchester United. Martial is overdue a goal and if they get an early goal then United could well relax and put on a show to ease the tension at the Theatre of Dreams.


My betting tip is for over 2.5 goals in the match. The recent stats say otherwise so I may be called foolish - indeed only one of Manchester United's last six games have seen over 2.5 goals - but I always trust my instinct. I see goals in this match.

I think I agree on this one FP. What does everyone else think to over 2.5 in this game?

I won't bet this one, too risky for me.
On juve was a good bet in the very last moment I decided to put 200eu DNB and 150eu on juve to win. I am 1500eu up now in 1 week just with good previews.

My next and saver one is liverpool to beat newcastle in combination with marseille draw or win against liberec (They can't face a lose otherwise they will be out of the europa league)

This 2 bets gives an odd of 2 and is pretty sure (bet €700)
