Manchester United legends Roy Keane and Gary Neville have dropped their predictions for the Red Devils’ Premier League clash against West Ham on Sunday.
Erik ten Hag’s men are in the hunt for a top-four Premier League finish this season and Manchester United face an uphill battle in securing Champions League football.
The Red Devils have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and the Champions League so far, with United still in contention to challenge for the FA Cup trophy.
United punched their ticket to the fifth round of the FA Cup after the Red Devils defeated Newport County 4-2 at the Rodney Parade last Sunday.
But Ten Hag will know how important it is for United to secure every league win from now until the end of the season if they ever hope to climb into the top four.

Former United manager David Moyes walked away with the last laugh when the two sides met in the Premier League this season.
West Ham defeated United 2-0 at the London Stadium before the end of 2023, with Erik ten Hag keen to avoid a repeat of the result at Old Trafford.
Speaking on the Stick to Football show, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were paired on one team while Roy Keane and Ian Wright were on the opposing team.
“I think Man United are definitely winning that. We’re definitely winning that,” Neville said on The Overlap.
Responding to Neville, Carragher asked: “2-0?”
Both Neville and Carragher agreed on a 2-0 scoreline prediction for United, with Arsenal legend Wright disagreeing with the two Sky Sports pundits.
However, Wright didn’t step in the way of Keane making his prediction for United vs West Ham and the Irishman backed Ten Hag’s men to win on the day.
“I’ll go 2-1 Man United,” Keane said.
United must not fumble against West Ham
United’s season has been a mixed bag so far, with Ten Hag’s men unable to string together a consistent run of results over a period of time.
The FA Cup is United’s last chance of capturing major silverware this season, with a Premier League title challenge having been out of the question for some time.
However, United slipped up against West Ham when they travelled away and Ten Hag will need his men to avoid another potential banana skin moment this season.
United, as Keane and Neville predicted, should walk away with all three Premier League points and will no doubt enter the Premier League clash as the favourites.
