Manchester United and West Ham United face at Old Trafford, in a match for the 1st round of the Premier League. The home team makes its debut in the top-flight as they won both home and away last season matches against the Hammers with a 6-1 goal aggregate. Also, they have a lot of quality and potential since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. They have strengthened over the summer, bringing in Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, and should be closer to the title this time around. However, West Ham was one of five teams to score first against Man Utd at Old Trafford last season, and with their improved front line stand, they should have a decent chance again. Yet their defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. Overall, they had a season of transition last term, finishing 11th, and have no excuses this time around. They have spent wisely over the summer, and should improve for that, but have been dealt a tough first match. This should be an entertaining, high-scoring game.
