Letting a lead slip twice, squandering a penalty and conceding an 89th minute equaliser against Fulham last Sunday left Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson raging, especially as his side missed out on the title last season by a solitary point.
But the Red Devils are a team that never dwells on a bad result and, on paper, West Ham seem ideal opposition as Ferguson's side look to play catch up on Chelsea's goal difference that already stands at +12.
Manchester United may rest Paul Scholes and draft Michael Carrick or Ryan Giggs into central midfield. Wayne Rooney returns after missing the match with Fulham and will partner Dimitar Berbatov in attack.
West Ham are likely to opt for a five-man midfield, so striker Frederic Piquionne could give way to midfielder Radoslav Kovac. Matthew Upson should return to the side after missing the Carling Cup game against Oxford with a facial injury.
Hammers boss Avram Grant faced an insurmountable challenge when he replaced Paul Hart at crisis club Portsmouth last season, but on the evidence of West Ham's first three games of the season, he has another serious job on his hands to install faith in a team that he says carry a lot of "psychology problems."
The Hammers are already off to their worst-ever start to a Premier League season and captain Scott Parker admitted he is "dreading" the thought of Saturday's trip to Old Trafford. If that wasn't bad enough, they then face Chelsea, Stoke away and Tottenham.

Bebé was raised in an orphanage, having spent part of his childhood living on the streets. He was given the nickname by his older brother, which means baby in Portuguese. He is the son of Cape Verdean immigrants and is now the third player of Cape Verdean descent to play with United; the others are Portuguese international winger Nani and former Swedish international Henrik Larsson.
Bebé had previously lived at the Casa do Gaiato shelter. During his time there, he and seven other residents of the shelter were invited to play for the CAIS team in the 2009 European Street Football Festival in the Bosnian town of Foca.Despite Bebé scoring 40 goals in six matches, CAIS did not progress beyond the second group stage of the tournament.
It was alleged that Bebé had participated in the Homeless World Cup, but these reports were found to be false. He was considered for selection for the national homeless squad after his performance in the European Street Football Festival, but he ultimately did not play in the tournament.
On 11 August 2010, only five weeks after he signed for Vitória de Guimarães, Manchester United agreed an undisclosed fee with the Portuguese club for the transfer of Bebé. The fee was reported to be around £7.4 million, believed to be the value of the buy-out clause in the forward's contract. It was also reported that Real Madrid and Benfica were interested in him. Bebé was recommended to Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson by Portugal national team coach Carlos Queiroz, Ferguson's former assistant. Ferguson only met him the day before the transfer. On 12 August 2010, David Gill stated that Bebé will not be sent out on loan and that he will join up with the first-team squad to prove himself and to learn English. The transfer was completed on 16 August, following Bebé's medical and the submission of the appropriate paperwork, and he was unveiled to the media at a press conference the following day, along with fellow new signings Javier Hernández and Chris Smalling.

United were held to a 2-2 draw but looked poised to join Chelsea at the top of the Barclays Premier League when Nani stepped up for an 86th-minute spot-kick, but his attempt was saved by David Stockdale and Brede Hangeland nodded home the equaliser with a minute to go.
Ferguson admitted United, who were missing Wayne Rooney because of a virus, had slipped up and he told MUTV: "When you get the opportunity to seal the game with that penalty you should be taking it. I thought Ryan should have taken the penalty. It was a missed opportunity and it galvanised them, got the crowd up and they scored the equaliser in the end."
He added: "When we got that second goal I thought 'we've escaped here'. But to miss a penalty kick to make it 3-1, you're throwing two points away there I'm afraid.
"You don't want to be dropping silly points and we dropped silly points. We can't escape that.
"In the last game we played against Tottenham at home Ryan scored two penalty kicks and Nani was on the pitch the same day."
Paul Scholes capped an ominous start for United when he powered home a low 25-yard drive in the 11th minute with Fabio Capello watching from the stands.
Reports suggest Capello may appeal to Scholes for a second time to end his international retirement and the midfielder's influential first half only served to highlight his potential value to England.

His elder brother Jack, who was also in the World Cup-winning team, was a former defender for Leeds United and coach.
He began to play for United's first team in 1956, and over the next two seasons gained a regular place in the team, during which time he survived the Munich air disaster of 1958. After helping United to win the Football League in 1965, he won a World Cup medal with England in 1966 and another Football League title with United the following year.

Cleverley, 20, was the star performer in the under-21 victory against Uzbekistan last night. This result followed a deluge of criticism for the conveyor belt of talent after the senior team's flop at World Cup 2010.
The Bradford-raised player says the talent is in place to replace the old guard.
"People are a bit harsh to say there is no talent coming through," Cleverley said.
"It is there. A couple of times we have had the problem the first team has and we just don't gel.
"When you look at the players; Walcott, Welbeck, Rodwell, Wilshere. The talent in the squad is unbelievable.
"A few of those lads have played Champions League and European football. They also have plenty of Premier League games under their belts.
"The fact Wilshere is in the senior squad just shows it can be done."
Cleverley has recently received a huge boost after Sir Alex Ferguson declared he wasn't releasing him on loan this term. This followed successive stays at Leicester City and Watford, and he can't wait to stake a claim for a place in the Red Devils side.
"I do feel one game at United is worth five somewhere else," Cleverley added.
"Federico Macheda is an example. He has had a limited number of games but he has done well and made a name for himself.
"There are advantages and disadvantages to going on loan.
"I would have got more games somewhere else but training with this quality of players every day is a huge advantage."

Charles Martin Edwards was born 24 july 1945 in Adlington, Cheshire, England. At thirteen, he failed the entrance exam for Stowe School, his parents' first choice, and went to Cokethorpe instead. He left at 18 with six O levels and no A levels. He was the chairman of Manchester United from 1980 until 2002. He now holds the position of honorary life president at the club.
He was elected to the Manchester United board in March 1970. He became chairman in March 1980 on death of his 65-year-old father Louis, the previous chairman. When the Football Association voted to allow football clubs to have one paid director, he became Chief Executive and paid himself an annual salary of £30,000.
During the season when Edwards took over as chairman, United finished runners-up to Liverpool in the Football League First Division, but had not won the league title since 1967 and had not won a major trophy at all in three seasons of Dave Sexton's management. At the end of the 1980-81 season, United finished eighth in the league after seven successive wins at the end of the season. Manager Dave Sexton was looking set to be offered a new three-year contract, but the deal was never signed and Edwards sacked Sexton after four trophyless seasons as manager.
Edwards then began the hunt for a new manager. There was talk that he would appoint Lawrie McMenemy, who had guided Southampton to a shock win over United in the FA Cup final five years earlier, as successor to Dave Sexton. It was also rumoured that United were interested in recruiting Brian Clough, once a league champion and twice a European Cup winner with Nottingham Forest, but Edwards insisted that he would not be approaching Clough about the job vacancy. He instead turned to Ron Atkinson, whose impressive West Bromwich Albion side had qualified for the UEFA Cup three times in four seasons with top-five league finishes, reaching the quarter-finals on one occasion. Atkinson accepted the offer, and soon after this appointment, Edwards made the funds available for Atkinson to bring in Albion's midfielder Bryan Robson for a national record fee of £1.5million. This national record would remain unbroken by English clubs for six years, and Robson went on to be one of the club's greatest ever players.
Edwards enabled United to break the national transfer record twice in 2001 when they signed Dutch striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Argentine midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron, but he was forced to resign as Chairman in 2002, after allegations of using a prostitute on an official club business trip to Switzerland. Despite this, he continued to represent the club at FA and UEFA meetings.
He still remains at Old Trafford as honorary life president and sits on the club's football board alongside Sir Bobby Charlton. He sold his 6.7% share in the club to new investor Harry Dobson in 2003.
