Arsenal-owned West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson looks ahead to Sunday's Premier League clash against Manchester United.

West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson has told the club’s official website that the side can win against Manchester United at the weekend.

London outfit West Ham will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday, when they take on United at home.

Sam Allardyce’s side will head into the clash at the Boleyn Ground on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in the league on Saturday.

The defeat has seen the Hammers slip down to eighth in the Premier League table with 36 points from 23 matches, six points behind fourth-placed Southampton.

Meanwhile, United find themselves third in the standings with 43 points from 23 matches, and are picking up points without playing exceptionally well.

Winning at home against Louis van Gaal’s side will not be easy, but Arsenal-owned Jenkinson, who is on a season-long loan deal at West Ham, is confident of doing just that.

“We have a massive game again on Saturday,” the 22-year-old told West Ham’s official website. “Man Utd are coming into a bit of form and they have some great players but we're a very strong side at home. It should be a great game and one we're looking to come out on top of.”

Can West Ham win?

On paper, United should be considered favourites despite being the visitors.

The Manchester outfit have a very good squad with a number of world-class players, although they are underperforming at the moment.

United will head into Saturday’s encounter on the back of two competitive wins in a row and unbeaten in four.

However, West Ham are strong at home and should be confident of picking up at least a point.
