West Ham will be out for revenge when they travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash.
The Hammers suffered a 2-1 Premier League defeat against this opposition at the weekend, conceding late on before missing an injury time penalty.
Manchester United vs West Ham latest odds
However, West Ham can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) with bet365 to put that behind them by pulling off a morale-boosting victory here.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are unbeaten in 17 home games against this opposition and Man Utd come into this clash as clear 9/20 (1.45) favourites to extend that run with another victory.
The sides needed extra-time to separate them when they met here in last season’s FA Cup tie, and you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them remaining all square after 90 minutes once again in this one.

Edinson Cavani will face a late fitness test as he hopes for a first start of the season, although Alex Telles, Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo are all ruled out.
Michail Antonio should return up front after missing Sunday’s clash through suspension, while summer signings Alphonse Areola and Alex Kral will be hoping to make their debuts.
Manchester United vs West Ham preview
While David Moyes will be particularly keen to put Sunday’s disappointment behind him after his ill-fated decision to bring Mark Noble on for the late penalty kick, his team’s record at this ground does not inspire much confidence.
With a first victory at this ground since 2007 seeming unlikely given their opponents’ form and star-studded squad, West Ham will at least back themselves to pose a significant threat with Antonio back leading the line.
Indeed, the 31-year-old was sorely missed during Sunday’s match at the London Stadium, having started the season in excellent form with five goals to his name from five appearances.
Manchester United vs West Ham tips & predictions
With the Red Devils having failed to score just once in their last 25 fixtures in all competitions and able to field an exciting attacking line-up even while resting Sunday’s starters, odds of 9/4 (3.25) seem generous on them coming out on top in a match featuring goals at both ends.
