Manchester United to kick off Premier League campaign with win over West Ham

Manchester United suffered only five defeats in the Premier League last season, but 15 draws saw Jose Mourinho's side finish a distant sixth in the table, so the Red Devils will be desperate to kick off this season on a winning note, and they welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

  • Manchester United have won their last two matches against West Ham
  • Romelu Lukaku scored nine goals in his first nine appearance for Everton against West Ham
  • Javier Hernandez is set to return to Old Trafford after joining West Ham

United Red-Hot Favourites

While they suffered an indifferent league campaign, Manchester United ended the season on a huge positive, winning the Europa League, so Mourinho will have his eyes on the Champions League this season, but his intentions will be solely on Sunday's live Sky Sports clash with West Ham, and United have been installed as 30/100 favourites with Sky Bet Bookmakers.

Slaven Bilic's West Ham United finished in 11th place last season, and he will be hoping to unleash new signing Javier Hernandez against his old club, but the Hammers who lost two and drew one of their three meetings with United last season will head in as 11/1 outsiders with BetVictor for this test, while the draw is as big as 19/4 with bet365.

While many will enjoy getting stuck into that draw price, you have to feel that Mourinho's United will fly out of the traps, and with the signing of Romelu Lukaku likely to prove a terrific one, then the Belgian could prove to be the catalyst for a more positive United campaign in the league this year, following the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and you have to feel United can kick off their season, like they have the last two years, with a win.
Match Odds:

Lukaku To Prove Instant Success

Romelu Lukaku netted 25 Premier League goals for Everton last season, and the Belgian superstar will be aiming to hit the ground running on Sunday, and at 100/30 with BetVictor he is a cracking price to open the scoring, and ignite what should be a comfortable success for the home side.

Lukaku has a stunning scoring record against West Ham, as he netted nine goals in his first nine appearances for Everton against the Hammers, so while the likes Marcus Rashford (19/4 with BetVictor) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (5/1) are prominent figures in the betting, with the abovementioned Javier Hernandez the shortest Hammers player at 11/1 with some firms, you can't help but back Lukaku to make a goal-scoring start in this Manchester United v West Ham United clash.
First Goalscorer Odds:

United To Win To Nil

Marcos Rojo is one of the United defenders on the injury list, but they should still have a strong defensive line-up taking to the field, and with West Ham likely to need a few weeks to gel in the attacking third, then the 11/10 with BetVictor for Manchester United to win to nil is a cracking bet in what can be an easy opening day win for Mourinho.
