In the fifth round of the FA Cup, Manchester United will host West Ham United. The game is being played by the hosts right after they won the Carabao Cup final, lifting the trophy after defeating Newcastle 2-0 at Wembley. In all competitions in 2023, Man United has only suffered one defeat, which came in the Premier League against league leaders Arsenal. West Ham enters the match having won the previous weekend. They defeated Nottingham Forest 4-0 at the London Stadium, a victory that allowed them to escape the relegation zone.
However, Manchester united has four wins and a draw in their last five games across all competitions, while West Ham has two wins and two losses. In the last five games between Manchester united and West Ham, the Red Devils have four wins and a loss. In their last eight encounters across all competitions, Man United and West Ham have only split their victories. This season, Ten Hag's team has averaged two goals per game across all competitions, and there is little reason to believe that this match will depart from the pattern given how dominant the Carabao Cup champions are against West Ham.
The Starting Xi That Could Give Man Utd The Win Against West Ham.
Goalkeeper: David De Gea.
Defenders: R. Varane, L. Martinez, T. Malacia and A. Wan-Bissaka.
Midfielders: Casemiro, Fred and Bruno Fernandes.
