Manchester United - West Ham Prediction and Analysis
One of the most interesting 1/8-final pairings in the FA Cup tournament is that between Manchester United and West Ham.
This match comes just days after the Red Devils won their first trophy after a six-year wait on Sunday.
Namely, it was the League Cup.
It is true that this is the lowest of all races on the Island.
But the triumph will also give a psychological advantage to Erik ten Haag's players.
Who have chances of success in 4 tournaments this campaign.
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is having an unforgettable season so far.
He single-handedly turned things around for the Red Devils on numerous occasions. And has scored 25 goals in 31 appearances so far this campaign.
Certainly Rashford's form will be a worrying sign for West Ham's defensive line.
Considering that he scored important goals on several occasions and in matches against the top teams.
So I've added it to this combined match prediction of mine.
Because I have no doubts at all about Man United's success here.
Manchester United won first trophy, dreams of 3 more
On Sunday, the Red Devils won the title for the first time in 6 years.
Erik Ten Haag was under the scanner for a long time. As the Ronaldo saga had also made the manager a bit vulnerable.
Thus, the only thing that could give Ten Haag time for quiet work was the trophy.
Now the Flying Dutchman won the Carabao Cup.
And it has certainly been rehabilitated in the hearts of fans at the Theater of Dreams.
But their dreams don't stop there. As their favorites have a chance of 4 trophies this season.
West Ham are fighting for their survival in England's elite
West Ham are trying to find their form in the Premier League.
Currently sitting 16th there, David Moyes' side are just 2 points clear of the relegation zone.
Having won just 2 of their previous 12 games in England's top flight.
But both wins were at home.
When it comes to their away games, their football statistics are tragic (1-3-8).
West Ham have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches (3-2-1)
Meanwhile, the Hammers played two FA Cup games and won both without conceding a goal.
The team's midfielders, however, have not shown much effort this season.
And this was one of the reasons why the Londoners could not stand up to the big teams.
Moyes and his boys will certainly be looking for a magical performance to win this big encounter.
Especially after West Ham beat Nottingham Forest 4-0 on Saturday night in a Premier League game.
