West Ham defender John Pantsil has told Manchester United not to expect an easy ride on Saturday in their bid to win the Premier League title.

United need maximum points from their last two games of the season to make sure they finish ahead of Chelsea, with Alan Curbishley's men travelling to Old Trafford for a Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

The Hammers have beaten United in their last three meetings and Pantsil wants a repeat result in order to claim a top-half finish.

"We don't want to go down to 11th or 12th in the league, so every game left is important for the club," he told the club's official website.

"We are going to Old Trafford to do everything possible to get a point or even three."
