Manchester United will face West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend, and the Hammers will be without striker Michail Antonio. TalkSPORT host Jason Cundy thinks the Red Devils will be glad not to face the attacker who has been in spectacular form lately.
Following the Hammers’ 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League on Thursday, Cundy said:
West Ham were brilliant. I’m a Chelsea fan and you are a Spurs fan, let’s show a little respect. I really enjoy watching West Ham play. With David Moyes for the last 18 months, I really enjoyed the West Ham game. “
“It’s a good team, well organized, but Antonio will be a big mistake against Manchester United on the weekend after that red card. I’d love to hear what West Ham fans think about the fact that they didn’t go out on the transfer market and get a replacement for [Sebastian] Haller, who yesterday scored a hat-trick with Ajax, “he added.
“That must be scary for them now that they are not going to play Manchester United at the weekend. If you’re a Manchester United fan, you’ll think ‘thank goodness he’s not playing,’ “Cundy said.
Manchester United will travel to West Ham on Sunday for their fifth Premier League game of the season. Michail Antonio will not be available to the hosts due to suspension. Picked up two yellow cards in the Hammers’ recent league game against Southampton.
