With seven Premier League games remaining until the turn of the year and the season’s halfway stage, we take a look at how we think Manchester United will fare up until the start of 2016.

Watford (A), Nov 21

United haven’t conceded in their last four Premier League matches, and they will be confident of picking up a positive result ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road.

Despite the goals also seemingly drying up, we fancy Louis van Gaal’s to take the three points back to Manchester.

Shoot Says: Win

Leicester (A), Nov 28

The Foxes are currently a point above the Red Devils after an incredible start to the season, and it will certainly be a very interesting match at the King Power Stadium.

If Jamie Vardy scores against Newcastle next weekend, he will be on to break Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record against United which could be intriguing. We think the spoils will be shared though.

Jesse Lingard could be set for an extended run in the first-team.

West Ham (H), Dec 5

After the two away matches, United welcome West Ham to Old Trafford, and they will certainly be wary of their visitors.

The Irons have already won at Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Crystal Palace this season, but we don’t see them taking anything back to East London here.

Bournemouth (A), Dec 12

The Cherries have been hit with a number of unfortunate long-term injuries, and it is really affecting their form – they have lost five of their last six games.

We see United bringing back a comfortable three points from their trip to the south coast, as they look to keep in touch with Manchester City and Arsenal.

Shoot says: Win

Norwich (H), Dec 19

Louis van Gaal then faces another struggling side in the Canaries, and while Alex Neil will want his side to be solid on the road, a trip to Old Trafford is never an easy task.

We expect United to give their supporters an early Christmas present, and it could get ugly for the visitors from Norfolk.

Stoke (A), Dec 26

United then have two tough matches in the three days over the Christmas period – beginning with a trip to Stoke.

The Potters always seem to raise their game when one of the top teams visits the Britannia, and we don’t either side coming out on top here.

Shoot Says: Draw

Chelsea (H), Dec 28

Jose Mourinho’s side may have started the season poorly, but with a favourable looking run of fixtures to come, we’re expecting them to pick up a little in the next few weeks.

The match between the two teams at Old Trafford will certainly be an interesting one, and we’re backing them to take a point apiece.

Shoot Says: Draw

Points: 39
League Position: 3rd
