Latest Man Utd v West Ham live stream, betting odds and match preview as Manchester Utd look to get back to winning ways this afternoon (KO 15:00).

Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United desperately need a result at home to West Ham when the pair meet in a few hours.

United managed to throw away a two goal lead at Leicester City last Sunday, meaning the Reds still have just one win this season.

Ander Herrera made it 3-1 in the second half to put United in a seemingly brilliant position; however Leicester fought back in style.

A David Nugent penalty and an Esteban Cambiasso volley made it 3-3, before Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa earned Leicester the victory of the season.

West Ham themselves won at Upton Park for the first time this season, beating Liverpool 3-1 in their best display of the campaign.
