David Moyes hopes his West Ham United can take advantage of his weary former club when the Irons visit Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday (start time 3:15pm ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Moyes hasn’t managed a team to a win over Manchester United since August 20, 2012, when his Everton side beat United 1-0 at Goodison Park to open the season.
United boasts five wins and two draws against Moyes-managed teams since then, with the boss even running the Old Trafford set during the stretch.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils haven’t lost a Premier League match since Jan. 27, and that’s the side’s only loss dating back to Nov. 1. There have been eight draws in the mix, but West Ham will want a win to pull within three points of the second-place Red Devils.
The Irons hold a match-in-hand on United.

Man United may be weary given its injuries and its Thursday 1-1 draw with AC Milan. West Ham blanked Leeds on Monday and has only lost to the big boys (and Newcastle) in Premier League play. We’re going to give them the nod here, especially with Marcus Rashford a doubt for the game. Manchester United 1-2 West Ham United.
