Gary Neville names three key West Ham threats

Gary Neville believes that West Ham are a dangerous side ahead of their clash against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Hammers welcome Manchester United to the London Stadium for a Premier League fixture and the teams are locked together on eight points from their opening five games.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are hopeful they can break into the elite six of English football right now and will need to try pick up positive results against them.

Sky Sports pundit Neville has highlighted West Ham as a big threat and feels they posses some potential match-winners.

He’s named the attacking trio of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Sebastien Haller as danger men.

“You look at Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Sebastien Haller and you can feel that the atmosphere will be hostile for Man United on Sunday,” Neville said on Sky Sports’ Main Event channel (7:20pm, 20 September).


“The reason those players are at West Ham is because they have quality, but they can’t play at the highest level. However, they can play in those one-off games – they can play in moments in matches, and that makes West Ham really dangerous against Man United.”

TBR’s View:

West Ham certainly have the individual talents to beat Manchester United at home this weekend, but they will need the whole team to be on their A-game.

Anderson is a skilful left-winger that that is set to have a fascinating battle against highly-rated full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Meanwhile, powerhouse centre-forward Haller is going to have to try get the better of England international Harry Maguire.

Lanzini is perhaps the one most creative threat for the Hammers that makes them tick and his team have a great chance of winning if he can see plenty of possession.
