Man Utd news: Why West Ham players are ‘looking forward’ to playing Manchester United | Football | Sport
Manchester United are on a retched run of away form in the league, not winning on the road in any of their last six outings.
And Wright says the Hammers have plenty of ammunition to cause Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side more problems.
“The players, you look at that [United’s away record],” Wright told Premier League Productions.
“And because it’s Man United and they’re coming to your place.
“You have to look at the way West Ham will play with their 4-5-1, with [Sebastien] Haller up front, with [Andriy] Yarmolenko, with Felipe Anderson.
“They will be putting pressure onto Manchester United in respect of getting the ball in to him, holding it, and really attacking them with pace, at home.
“They’ll be really looking forward to this because I think it’s a game that West Ham will fancy winning.”
“You look at it now and the spine looks pretty good,” he added.
“From goalkeeper, [Lukasz] Fabianski, [Issa] Diop, then you’ve got [Mark] Noble and Declan Rice and now Haller who, for me, I think is very impressive.
“He holds the ball up very well, he looks like he knows exactly where to go.
“I watched him against Wolves and he was brilliant.
“Felipe Anderson, Yarmolenko, they’ve got everything in their armoury right now to cause Man United a lot of problems.
“That’s why, like I say, they will be looking forward to Man United coming there.”
