Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming clash between West Ham United and Manchester United.
The Hammers are currently sitting in 15th place in the Premier League table following their disappointing defeat to Manchester City in the midweek. The Red Devils, meanwhile, are 5th on the table after the 1 - 0 defeat to Brighton on Thursday.
The Hammers will be eager to grab points to avoid relegation, while Erik ten Hag's side will be hoping to have a successful game in order to finish in the top four and secure a place in the next season's Champions League.
The meeting between the two clubs will take place on Sunday, May 7, 2023. Ahead of it, Merson shared his thoughts, predicting a 1 - 1 draw for the two sides.
"Manchester United have been terrible away from home this season. They played alright against Brighton, but the seagulls were better in the second half and scored a deserved stoppage-time winner to secure all three points at the Amex Stadium," the pundit said on Sportskeeda.
"I think this game will end 1-1, but I still fancy Manchester United to secure a top-four finish this season and return to the UEFA Champions League. As for West Ham, I don't see them getting relegated and they also have the UEFA Conference League semi-final to look forward to, so the 2022-23 season could still be memorable for the Hammers."
