The Red Devils have bounced back well from last month’s back-to-back defeats to Manchester City with Marc Skinner’s side having recorded consecutive wins against Leicester City and Reading. They have a three-point cushion in their race for European qualification.
Ahead of Manchester United’s fixture at West Ham United, FAWSL Full-Time have been reviewing the statistics for previous meetings between the two clubs. Here are four facts which relate to this fixture.
Goalscorers have moved on
The two clubs have both gone through transitions since last season’s meetings in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. Eight goals were produced across the two games but six of those goals were scored by players who are no longer on the books of West Ham United or Manchester United. Alessia Russo is the only one of last season’s goalscorers to still be with the same club.
Old Trafford history made
Manchester United’s home fixture against West Ham United last season saw The Red Devils take to the field for the very first time at Old Trafford. Manchester United won that match 2-0 thanks to second half goals from Lauren James and Christen Press.
Another classic on the cards?
Two of the three Barclays FA Women’s Super League meetings between West Ham United and Manchester United have produced five or more goals. The first meeting in 2019/2020 saw West Ham United win 3-2 at Rush Green while last season’s fixture in East London finished 4-2 in Manchester United’s favour. This fixture has a habit of producing fireworks.
Late goals are a theme
Five of the 11 goals scored in West Ham United’s home clashes with Manchester United have been netted in the 80th minute or later. This fixture has produced late drama in the last two seasons and expect the same this time around with both sides looking up in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between West Ham United and Manchester United at The Chigwell Construction Stadium kicks-off at 7.30pm on Wednesday evening.
