United have looked shaky at the back, conceding six goals in their last six matches and are yet to hit top form so far this season. The defending champions were lucky to register a big win over Portsmouth in their last game with the hosts putting up a strong fight and only some excellent keeping from Tomasz Kuszczak kept them out from scoring more goals.
Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick, while Ryan Giggs grabbed a late goal as United beat Pompey 1-4. Kevin Prince-Boateng scored for the home side. The win kept them in the second spot on the league table with 31 points from 14 games; still five points adrift of Chelsea. The absence of Rio Ferdinand is proving to be a big worry for manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The manager is also worried about the lack of support for Wayne Rooney and could buy some players in the January window.
Meanwhile West Ham pulled themselves out of the relegation zone with a 5-3 win over Burnley. Goals from Jack Collison, Junior Stanislas, Carlton Cole, Guillermo Franco and Luis Jimenez nullified a brace from Steven Fletcher and another goal from Chris Eagles to give the Hammers some succor. The win took them to the 17th spot with 14 points from 14 games.
Manager Gianfranco Zola is under pressure, but is handling it well. He may be forced to sell some players in January in order to beef up his squad. For this game Mathew Upson is out with a hamstring injury, while Alex Diamanti is battling a hip issue.
