After 36 games this season, United have won 24, drawn five and lost seven, scoring 67 and conceding 28 return, The Reds now hold the second best defensive record in the Premier League this year. With a points tally of 77, while United are 17 points adrift of the newly crowned Champions, United do hold a five-point advantage over Liverpool in the race for second. As for their recent form, although United are coming off the back of a loss, they do hold a stellar record against West Ham, United have only been beaten by the Clarets once in their last 17 meetings.
