WHAT’S OUR RECORD LIKE AGAINST WEST HAM?
Historically, the Reds have a mixed record against the Hammers. Of the 141 previous competitive meetings, we have won 66, drawn 31 and lost 44. There have been 46 encounters between the clubs in the Premier League era, with the Reds winning 28 times to West Ham's six, while there have been 12 draws. Last season, United suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat to the Hammers at the London Stadium. Our last win away to the Hammers came in 2017, when Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were on target for the Reds, earning us a maiden victory at the east Londoners' new home at the first attempt.
The Hammers endured a challenging start to former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini's tenure as manager, losing their opening four league games of the season. Their form picked up during the autumn, thanks to a run of four straight league wins at the start of December. In the new year, West Ham earned a memorable 1-0 win over Arsenal and held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw – both at the London Stadium. A strong finish to the campaign saw Pellegrini's men win their final three league games, helping them cement a 10th-placed finish with 52 points – the same number of points that the team above them, Leicester City, recorded. The Hammers exited both domestic cup competitions at the fourth-round stage, going out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and then the Emirates FA Cup following a surprise 4-2 defeat at League One outfit AFC Wimbledon.
