Premier League – Manchester United Vs West Ham: Now or never!!!

It used to be that playing at Old Trafford is a sure thing of – winning. But since the new era under David Moyes, Manchester United is ‘toothless’ playing at home. Losses to West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Newcastle United are enough prove that the fear factor for teams visiting Old Trafford is no longer in existent. Therefore the game against West Ham United will be another one to can cause further anxiety for all Manchester United’s fans.
While the win against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup is good for building the confidence and maintaining the winning momentum for David Moyes’ beleaguered team, this match will now be considered one of the most important for Manchester United. This is the time where the gap to the leaders can be close down. Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool are all having tricky fixtures in the coming hectic fixtures. With the unavailability of Robin Van Persie, Michael Carrick and possibly Wayne Rooney, the rest of United’s squad must rise to the fact that there are the champion, every single one of them, and they must play like one – it is now or never.
It is interesting to see if David Moyes can motivate his starting XI to play like champions. Basically that is the only requirement Moyes has – after all this squad won the Premier League by a hefty margins last season and the only change is the manager. It is down to Moyes now.
