BBC pundit Chris Sutton is taking on Ski Sunday presenter Ed Leigh for this weekend's Premier League predictions.

Sutton's prediction: 1-0

Well, Manchester United won the World Cup again on Thursday night, judging from the reaction to their last-gasp 4-3 victory at Molineux.

Seriously, though, it was a good win and fair play to them for the way they got it - they certainly needed it.

West Ham beat them at the London Stadium before Christmas but I am expecting a different outcome at Old Trafford.

I am not expecting it to be a very open game because Hammers boss David Moyes will not set up that way, but Manchester United will find a way through.

Ed's prediction: 1-2

Despite the best efforts of Erik ten Hag, Manchester United have lacked team spirit, cohesion and a sense of unity at times this season. They have shown they can link up on the pitch and all play well, but there always seems to be something around the corner that unhinges them.

So, I am going with West Ham here. They have got Mohammed Kudus back from the Africa Cup of Nations and he can make the difference.
