Pundit: West Ham United must 'stop the revolution' at Manchester United on Sunday
We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium…
West Ham can “stop the revolution” at Manchester United if they repeat their Anfield heroics at Old Trafford on Sunday, says Frank McAvennie.
The Hammers lost 1-0 to Liverpool (19 October) through a Darwin Nunez header, but Jarrod Bowen missed a penalty and West Ham turned in a great performance that was deserving of more than a defeat.
With a trip to sixth-placed Manchester United at Old Trafford up next on Sunday, McAvennie feels a similar performance will see the team be successful if Moyes is able to field a strong team, with the players likely to be up for it because it’s the type of game these players want to play in.
“We went to Liverpool and we should have got a draw at Liverpool, if not more. Bowen missing a penalty, that won’t happen at Old Trafford,” he told West Ham Zone.
“You’ve got to get that confidence in you to go and do that [win at Old Trafford]. I’m hoping it’s a good game.

“It will be interesting. We’ll see how it goes. Get the best team you can out on Sunday and put a stop to the revolution at Manchester United. Put them in their place.”
“That’s the kind of games you want to play in. You want to play in the Champions League, but you want to play games at Old Trafford too, my God. Or at Anfield. St James’ Park. What an atmosphere.
“You want to go there and use that atmosphere, even though it’s against you, use it and make a negative into a positive. That’s what good players do.
“So hopefully the boys can go there on Sunday and get a result, that would be nice.”
