Writing in his predictions blog he hands the Hammers a 2-1 win and still doesn’t over-fancy United as a team.
He said: “It’s a hard place to go. Even though the Hammers were poor at Liverpool last week, I think they have got a really good chance of winning this game.
“Van Gaal is a good talker, that’s why he’s not getting a hard time, and to be fair they’re in the top four. That’s what they were looking for this season, a bit of stability – but this game is not a foregone conclusion.”
West Ham are currently eighth in the top flight and could do with a victory to climb back towards the Champions League places.
