Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann tips West Ham to beat ‘exceptionally ordinary’ Manchester United as he claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to oversee a ‘serious rebuild’
Dietmar Hamann believes West Ham United can complete a Premier League double over an ‘exceptionally ordinary’ Manchester United side on Saturday evening.
The game, which kicks off at 5.30pm, will be live for fans to listen to for free on talkSPORT from Old Trafford.
When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer succeeded Jose Mourinho in December, the Norwegian seemed to have turned the club’s fortunes around.
However, defeat to the east Londoners at home will be United’s fifth in their previous six in all competitions – a run they have not endured since 1992.
And Hamann, who represented rivals Liverpool on 283 occasions, believes Solskjaer’s honeymoon period is almost over.
“(Manchester) United look an exceptionally ordinary side at the moment,” the midfielder wrote in his Racing Post column.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has improved results and lifted spirits after the Mourinho disaster, but this is still a team – indeed a club – in serious need of a rebuild.
Recent wins have merely papered over the cracks because their performances haven’t been convincing. West Ham can put the brakes on them.”
The Hammers themselves are in something, with neither the threat of relegation nor the promise of European qualification able to inject much enthusiasm into Manuel Pellegrini’s beleaguered side.
