Manchester United have won their last seven league matches against West Ham and scored 21 goals in those games to the Hammers’ three.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have gone unbeaten in their last 31 Premier League home matches against promoted clubs, stretching back over 11 years since a 2-1 defeat by Bolton Wanderers in October, 2001.
Bolton were then managed by current West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, while Kevin Nolan was on the scoresheet.
Wayne Rooney has scored seven goals in the last four league meetings, including a hat-trick as United overturned a 2-0 half-time deficit to win 4-2 in the most recent meeting in April 2011 at Upton Park. There have been four penalties scored in those two games – two by each side.
West Ham have made 16 visits to Old Trafford in the Premier League, but have won there just twice, in December 2001 and May 2007. The latter victory ensured their Premier League survival.
The Hammers knocked out holders United in the League Cup quarter-finals in 2010-11.
United have won six of their last seven Premier League matches.

Ten of United’s league goals this season have been headers, more than any other club in the division.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have scored in each of their last 55 Premier League home matches since the 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa in December 2009. It is the longest home-scoring streak in the top flight since a 75-match run by Wolves from 1956 to 1959.
This match is being staged on the eve of Ryan Giggs’s 39th birthday.
West Ham have won just one of their five matches against clubs in the top half this season.
