The Red Devils centre-back doesn’t think a win is guaranteed for his side at Upton Park.
Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic expects it to be a difficult game when his side travel to east London to take on West Ham on Wednesday.
After United’s 0-2 win against Stoke City on Sunday, Vidic’s side only need seven more points to secure a record 20th league title, with many believing they can pick up three of those points at Upton Park.
However, the centre-back is not so sure it will be such an easy ride for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men and has sent a warning out to his team about the physical nature of the Hammers.
“They play in a similar style to Stoke – we’re going to have long balls and set pieces to deal with,” Vidic was quoted in the Guardian.
“You think you’re almost winning there [winning the title] but you have to win the games.”
This warning will probably not phase the 31-year-old as the Serbian has a reputation as being something of a hard-man at the heart of United’s defence.
Yet Vidic has found his chances in the Red Devils team limited by injuries this season, with the defender playing in just 20 matches in 2012/13 and starting less than half of his side’s Premier League games.
Vidic has now played three back-to-back league ties for Ferguson’s side though and United have not conceded a single goal in that time.
Therefore it could be a low-scoring match at West Ham on Wednesday, with Sam Allardyce’s side liking to keep a compact defence that doesn’t leak many goals, before playing the ball up to the towering Andy Carroll.
