Manchester United will welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford for the first time this season. The Red Devils will welcome the Hammers for a very crucial game in the third round of the carabao cup on Wednesday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful that his side proceed to the next round of the Carabao cup when they face the Hammers at Old Trafford.
Apparently, Manchester United defeated West Ham United on Sunday in the English Premier League and will now face the David Moyes' side in one of the most anticipated English tournament of the season. West Ham United will be prioritizing handing the Red Devils a tougher game than sunday's dramatic clash at the West Ham stadium, which ended in a narrow win for Manchester United after late goal from Jesse Lingard denied West Ham United a crucial point at home.
Prior to Wednesday's consecutive clash between Manchester United and West Ham United, certain players will have the opportunity to play after missing out on Sunday's 2-1 win for Manchester United and one West Ham United player has been tagged a threat against Manchester United defenders ahead of Wednesday's showdown at Old Trafford following his return from suspension.
Recalling on Sunday's win at West Ham, we can attest that West Ham United played out the Red Devils without one of their key player due to his one match suspension. The Hammers were arguably weakened by the absence of Michail Antonio who's one of the consistent players from West Ham United this season. Arguably, his presence would have brought lot of problems for Manchester United defence, if he had been involved on Sunday but thanks to his absence and Manchester United took the better of the host team.
Following Antonio's return to action against the Red Devils this Wednesday, we can arguably concur to the fact that Antonio's return would bring a lot of excitement to West Ham United and he could be a bad omen for the Manchester United backline. Judging from Antonio's 2021-22 stats, the attacker has been brilliant and interestingly, Michail Antonio is West Ham United leading scorer of the season and the Hammers hasn't lost a single game with Antonio in the first team this season, what a brilliant record for the talisman.
Manchester United will have to work hard to keep Antonio of the track and hold him back from netting. It isn't gonna be a easy task but with Manchester United squad indepth in the defence, hopefully Harry Maguire could lead the team to a clean sheet win tomorrow whilst handling the captain armband for the Red Devils. Arguably, Antonio remain a big threat for Manchester United ahead of Wednesday's Carabao cup clash at Old Trafford.
