West Ham vs Man. United by Marinos
West Ham after last weekend heavy defeat at home to Swansea (1-4) ended a streak of 10 games that they were undefeated and also,ended their own hopes of a Champions League place,West Ham now has to win both of the remaining games and the teams above them to loose points in order for them to get a ticket to next years Europa League competition.
There is no time for tears tonight for West ham(8-7-3 @ home )as they are in a must win situation,emotions and motivation for the win are sky high,this season the only team ""from the top 9 of the table"" that escaped with a win from Boleyn Ground is this years Champions ,Leicester(4-3-1).
The only absentee for West Ham for this game is the goalie .
Man Utd is coming to this match after a cynical away win at Norwich (0-1) and top-4 fate is in their own hands after Manchester City's draw with Arsenal this past weekend ,their form consists of 5 wins in the last 6 games and only one defeat in the last 11 matches in all competitions .
Man Utd is as well in a must win situation as if they win they will take lead in the table over their city rivals M City for the run of the 4th spot that leads to next years Champions League qualifiers .
Recent history is in favor of Man Utd as in the past 14 meetings for the Premier League against West Ham United they did not loose a single game (11-3-0) and 12 (7-5-0) games in all competitions.
Another important stat for this game is ""Manchester United have averaged 2.19 points from Premier League games played on a Tuesday (P43 W28 D10 L5), the best rate of any side in the competition"".
For tonight's game Man Utd will not have the help of Marouane Fellaini who is suspended , Matteo Darmian and Anthony Martial is a doubt .
This is a game of high importance for both teams ,West Ham wants the win as this is the last game in their home ,they are after the 6th spot which gives a ticket to Europe for next season and also wants revenge for the defeat in the semi-final of F A Cup (a game were Man of the match was David de Gea) and Man Utd wants to save a not that good of a year by getting a ticket to next years Champions League (they also made it to the F A Cup FInal and might end up with a trophy after all ).
I believe we will see a strong game with goals ,due to the facts of this game a think we we will have a fast start and if a quick goal occurs from any side it will open the game for good .
I will not choose a side as both teams for me have equal chances for the win,but i think this game starts from 1-1 and someone will win (a draw here most likely will be catastrophic for both teams),therefore i'll go with "" both teams to score and over 2.5 goals"".
