United’s on the road record offers Irons real hope

West Ham have a real chance of qualifying for the Europa League this weekend.

The Hammers are well aware that they need to beat Brighton and hope that Manchester United fail to win on the final day.

United are playing Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.  United winning would mean they finish sixth; if they draw or lose, and the Hammers win we can overtake them for the final Europa cup position.

And United’s away record has been simply terrible this season, under both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

For such a giant club, their performances have been nothing short of woeful.

United have won just six games on the road, the same number as newly-promoted Brentford. They have drawn five of their games away and lost seven.

Their last game on the road ended in a 4-0 defeat to Brighton, and they have not won on the road since February, when they beat relegation-threatened Leeds 4-2.

It would not be a shock at all to see them drop points this weekend.
