West Ham News and Form

The Hammers produced a home record of W9 D4 L6 last season in the top flight. It wasn’t a bad run from them at the end of the season either as they lost just one of their final nine home fixtures (against Everton). However, if you break it down, it was their home games against the top sides in which they had the most problems.

West Ham were W2 D3 L3 in their home games against the other top ten finishers, failing to score in five of those games. The Irons scored an average of 1.7 goals per home fixtures, while they struggled at the back with a clean sheet in just 21% of fixtures.

Six of West Ham’s nine home wins the last term were by a margin of at least two goals. It was a pretty steady season from the Hammers under Manuel Pellegrini. They did need a little something extra up top. They have added Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller to that end, so should be a little sharper.

Haller comes in as the club’s record signing at £45 million. They do have that poor record though against Manchester City that they have to shake off. It would be some start to the season if they could pick up a win. At the worst, it’s one of the toughest games out of the way early on.

West Ham v Manchester City Head to Head

The Citizens won 4-0 away at West Ham last season

Eight of the last nine meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
City have four clean sheets in their last six against the Hammers

Manchester City News and Form

The Citizens will begin their quest for more domestic success. It was a clean sweep of the league title, EFL Cup and FA Cup for them last season. It’s a pretty high bar that they have set for themselves. Will they start the new season with three points? Last season they started away from home against Arsenal and took a 2-0 win.

Manchester City went undefeated in their first seven away games of last season, winning five of those. Their overall away record last term was W14 D2 L3. The Citizens won their final seven away games on the bounce.

They averaged exactly two goals per game on their travels and that was only half of it. Their defence was so good, earning a clean sheet in over half of their away games and conceding just 0.58 goals per road game. City won 53% of their away games to nil.

The Citizens finished the season with an eleven match scoring streak away from home. Of the fourteen road victories that they earned, all but four were by a margin of at least two goals. One more stats for them, City were leading at the half time break in 12 away games. Of the four losses they suffered all of last season, three were away from home.

Who will win – West Ham v Manchester City Predictions

City looked a little bit spent in the second half of the Community Shield, so because of that, we’ll back West Ham to get on the scoresheet at least. It looks to have been a positive summer by the Hammers. But City should control enough for the game to walk away with the three points.
