West Ham v Man Utd Odds: Reds favourites for third round tie

West Ham v Man UnitedClick here for an in-depth betting preview of the West Ham v Man Utd match on Wednesday 17th April 2013.

There is an all Premiership affair in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening as West Ham take on Manchester United in the day's second live game. The fixture evokes memories of Paolo Di Canio's famous winner in this corresponding fixture 12 years ago and the Hammers will be hoping to emulate that 1-0 win this weekend.

Sam Allardyce's side go into the match as a tempting 4/1 chance in the latest match odds with William Hill, who make United 4/6 odds on favourites at Upton Park. It should be an intriguing match and West Ham might have a sniff of a chance if Sir Alex Ferguson opts to rest some of his key men on Saturday.

Ferguson has seen his side cruise to the top of the Premier League table and open up a seven-point lead so far this season and Robin van Persie has been in inspired form. The Dutchman has 21 goals to his name already and he is 11/4 favourite to score first, although he, along with Michael Carrick and Patrice Evra, might be rested for this weekend's game.

It means Shinji Kagawa, who is 11/2 to be first goalscorer with Hills, could get a chance to impress after coming back from injury recently, while Javier Hernandez, 7/2 to score first, might be given another opportunity to enhance his claims for a regular starting place after scoring 12 goals this season.

The form of Hernandez has been a key reason for United winning eight of their last 10 matches, although the Reds remain defensively suspect, with both teams scoring in seven of their last 10 away matches. They tend to give the opposition a few chances in matches and Sam Allardyce will be hoping his side can take advantage in this West Ham v Man Utd tie.

The Hammers beat Norwich 2-1 last time out as they recorded only their second win in nine matches. Mark Noble was on the scoresheet for the fourth time in his last seven appearances at Upton Park and he is a tempting 6/1 to score anytime. The fact Noble is West Ham's penalty taker ensures he is always a player to watch in their matches.

However, West Ham, who are currently 11th in the top flight, have lost five of their last eight games and they are struggling to cope with injuries. The loss of Andy Carroll and Mo Diame have been huge blows and it might have been tempting to back West Ham if those two had been fit.

United are on a roll though and they could prove too good, with the Reds currently 7/1 to win by a 2-1 correct scoreline. Both teams have scored in nine of the Hammers' last 10 at home but they might struggle to beat this United side, who have made a habit of popping up with late goals and a goal to be scored between the 86th minute and full-time on Saturday can be backed at 21/10.
