West Ham vs Man United live streaming: Watch Moyes and Rooney on March 22, 2014

March 22, 2014 By Abdullah Zubair
After a successful European outing Man United will now return to Premier League action where they face West Ham United at Upton Park.

Preview: United in buoyant mood after European win

A timely hat-trick from talismanic striker Robin Van Persie saw Man United secure qualification to the last eight of the Champions League. The result followed a series of poor performances which saw United lose ground in the race for a top four finish as well as being knocked out from both the domestic cup competitions.

The Red Devils now chase an unlikely dream of finishing the season as the champions of Europe and as things stand only winning the competition may guarantee David Moyes’ side a place in the competition next season.

 

If United are to achieve that they need a lot of performances like the one at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Olympiakos had one foot in the Quarter-Final of the competition after securing a 2-0 lead at Greece in the first leg. However a valiant display by the Red Devils spearheaded by last season’s top scorer Robin Van Persie aided by a game changing save from goalkeeper David De Gea ensured United keep their hopes of a silverware alive.

However it is imperative that United do not lose focus now and keep the momentum going. They now turn their attention to a competition they won last time out but have failed miserably in their attempts to retain the title. United are currently 7th in the league table and trail arch rivals Manchester City who occupy the final Champions League spot by 12 points. It is also worthy to mention that the Citizens have played two less games than the Red Devils and for Man United to finish in the top four might seem delusional thinking at this point.

However that is no reason for David Moyes’s men to give up and they will be looking to produce a much better performance than they did in their last Premier League outing when Liverpool thoroughly dominated the Red Devils at their own ground.

Whereas United have fared poorly at Old Trafford this season, their away performances have been more reassuring. Man United have won both their last two away league games, a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace was followed by a 3-0 thrashing of West Brom. Further to this the Red Devils have also not conceded in their last three games away from home, but will have to do without their captain Nemanja Vidic who after receiving his marching orders in the match against Liverpool will serve suspension.

West Ham on the other hand have mounted a terrific comeback and are likely to avoid relegation this season. However the Hammers did suffer a setback in their last two Premier League meetings in which they failed to notch a single point.  A 1-0 loss away to Everton was followed by a 3-1 loss at the Britannia Stadium and the Irons will definitely be glad at the prospect of returning to their home ground a venue where they have won both of their last two matches.

Despite failing to record a victory in the last game against Stoke, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce expressed his delight on record signing Andy Carroll returning to the score sheet.

"Andy scored last week which was good but unfortunately it meant nothing, apart from meaning a lot to him," he said.

"It gets him on the way and we're hoping he can continue that.”

The former Bolton manager also spoke of the stiff challenge in the bottom half of the table and claimed that 38 points might be enough for his team to avoid relegation.

"We don't put any great value in the table because our aim is always to obtain more points than games played.”

"We know full well that we've got a little bit more to do. I think probably about 38 points will keep you up but there's still 10 teams in it."

Allardyce will however have to produce a special performance out of his players, for West Ham have not recorded a win over their counterparts at home since 2007. United comfortably won the reverse leg played in December at Old Trafford when goals from Welbeck, Januzaj and Ashley Young allowed United to race to a 3-1 victory over the hammers.

West Ham will have to do without defender Joey O'Brien who will continue to nurse his dislocated shoulder whereas Marco Borriello’s calf injury will also keep him out of the tie. David Moyes will be sweating over the fitness of striker Robin Van Persie who suffered a knee injury following his heroics against Olympiacos. Defensive duo Chris Smalling (hamstring) and Jonny Evans (groin) are also expected to remain on the sidelines for Saturday’s clash.
