Can the Irons end Man United's long unbeaten run away from home? Predicting West Ham's first 5 Premier League result

Well, the new season feeling has arrived and West Ham finally know who they will face after the Premier League fixtures were released.

So, just who are the Hammers facing across their opening run of fixtures?

Well, in this piece, we will be predicting the outcome of the Irons’ first five Premier League games.

David Moyes and his team can count themselves lucky after they were handed a favourable opening set of fixtures.

The first five sees them face Newcastle United, Leicester City and Crystal Palace in August.

West Ham set for great start to the season after Premier League fixture release

Well, the opening game of the season will see Moyes searching for some revenge.

It’s a replay of the opening day of last campaign, but, at St James’ Park. The Geordies came to the London Stadium and comfortably beat the outfit 2-0 tha.

However, the fortunes couldn’t have been more different throughout the season. West Ham qualified for Europa League whilst Newcastle battled relegation for much of the year.

With how well the likes of Tomas Soucek, Vladimir Coufal and other stars are performing at Euro 2020, it seems last season’s form has carried on.

For that reason, West Ham should start the season off with a win.

The second game is at home to Leicester, who despite being in the top echelons of the division ended the season on a dampner.

Brendan Rodgers’ men threw away Champions League football on the final day. They may well enter the season far more cautious as they travel to the division’s second-best home record from last term.

The game won’t be easy, however, the east Londoners should win in a tightly fought encounter.

Crystal Palace at home is the third game and with the Eagles yet to appoint a new manager, and a raft of players’ future still unconfirmed, West Ham should win.

Southampton away is followed by Manchester United at home in two extremely tough games.

The Saints started the season well last year and will be tough to beat. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were third by December, having lost just three league games. A score draw seems the most likely result in this encounter.

There’s no knowing what Manchester United will turn up in east London come September 18th. However, their away form last season was sensational as they remained unbeaten throughout the whole campaign.

This should end up being Moyes’ first defeat of the season.

The Premier League fixtures have been fairly kind to West Ham. And it’s easy to see the club starting the season on fire.
