Cristiano Ronaldo was back this week, having been deliberately not selected by manager Erik ten Haag against Chelsea in the league game. He thanked his manager with the final goal against Sheriff. Before that, Diogo Dalot and Marcus Rashford had found the back of the net. And that the defense behaved excellently and did not let the guests create anything in the meeting. Manc Utd "tightened" their defense a lot from the game when their city rival gave them 6 goals and when they conceded two goals in Nicosia. In the Premier League, they have been a difficult team to beat, since the derby loss against champions Man City . Victories over Everton and Tottenham have been interspersed with good performances in cross matches against Newcastle United and Chelsea. There have been so many different goalscorers for the club. Which really shows the breadth there is. Midfielders Fred, Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes have been brilliant. West Ham started the season horribly with 3 straight defeats. Over time the game has gotten better and victories have come. Last, Bournemouth was beaten 2-0 at London's Olympic Stadium, after goals from Kurt Zouma and Said Benrahma on penalties. West Ham won despite both goals being very controversial. Manager David Moyes has good players such as Jarrod Bowen, Declan Rice, and Gianluca Scamacca at his disposal. But it was Manuel Lanzini who netted the match's only goal against Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League. Although West Ham's efforts have improved over time, they weigh a little too lightly against an in-form Man United. At Old Trafford they have beaten Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham this season. West Ham risks following the same path to destruction. Man Utd has been looking very good lately, and now that all the noise surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo has died down, I think they will manage to beat the visitors from London today.
