MUN vs WHU Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Manchester United vs West Ham United EFL Cup Live Score September 23


MUN vs WHU Dream11: Manchester United take on West Ham United in the third round of EFL Cup. The two sides met in the league on weekend in a pulsating match. Cristiano Ronaldo was on the mark yet again as he cancelled out Said Benrahma’s opener. Ole Gunnar Soskjaer’s substitutes worked wonders as Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard combined for what seemed to be the winner. However, more drama was in store as the Hammers were awarded a late penalty. Mark Noble was subbed on to take it but David de Gea made a splendid save to secure three points for the Red Devils.

Captain Options

Edinson Cavani might impress in his first full start for the Red Devils. The Uruguayan has great off-the-ball movement and is a classic poacher.

Michail Antonio’s presence would be crucial for West Ham. The Hammers are a different side whenever Antonio plays.

Differential Pick

Anthony Martial might start this game and will have a point to prove. After playing as a striker for much of last season, he will be starting down the left wing where he is the most dangerous.
