United Look To Hammer The Hammers

Tag: Match Preview @ 4:38 pm

Manchester United welcome West Ham to Old Trafford on Wednesday night looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.The Red Devils head into the game off the back of Saturday’s 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, a win that sent them top of the table after Manchester City were held to a 0-0 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
