The Red Devils of Manchester against east London’s finest is always a fixture to set the pulse racing.
Manchester United and West Ham are not the happiest of bed fellows. Just ask Paul Ince.
The two teams meet at Old Trafford on Saturday it what will certainly be a hotly contested encounter and – until the last couple of years – it used to be a fixture in which the Hammers occasionally prospered. Remember Paolo di Canio making Fabien Barthez look like a plonker in the FA Cup back in 2001 or Carlos Tevez’s winner that kept them up in 2007?
Avram Grant’s men have had a stinking start to the season having garnered no points from their first two matches and, with Chelsea waiting for them in two weeks time, things could get worse before they get better. But, as the old adage goes, football is a funny old game and after United themselves underwhelmed in their 2-2 draw at Fulham last weekend anything can happen.
