Mourinho Starts The Grind
Huge expenditure shouldn't disguise the fact that Man Utd will resemble a classic Mourinho outfit more than ever this season.
After the drama and excitement provided by Arsenal And Liverpool on opening weekend, get ready for a more mundane afternoon in the company of Jose Mourinho.
Last season at Old Trafford the most common scoreline was 1-1 - seven times in the Premier League - so expect a Jose target to be turning the majority into 1-0 & 2-0 home victories. Indeed, the hosts only scored more than two on two of 19 occasions.
We can back a 1-0 or 2-0 Man Utd win against West Ham at best odds of 13/5 with BetVictor.
Romelu Lukaku may have grabbed the summer headlines but trust that Nemanja Matic may prove an even more significant signing. The Red Devils will be sent out to grind out results at any cost, and we can prosper if we don’t expect too many fireworks.
The Hammers may have some interesting new additions but the absences of Antonio, Lanzini, Carroll and Sakho will still be felt at the attacking end of the park on Sunday.
