West Ham v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 29th April 2.15pm
The Hammers had a poor collapse at the end of their game against Arsenal last weekend and they probably won’t be looking forward to this one too much. The Hammers go into the weekend six points clear of the drop zone. The Citizens crushed Swansea with a majestic performance at the Etihad last weekend as they look to break some Premier League records.
West Ham v Manchester City Betting Odds*
Man City 1/3, Draw 15/4, West Ham 9/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:58 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers looked on course for a point at Arsenal on the weekend before they collapsed and conceded three goals in the last ten minutes. That snapped at a three-match undefeated sequence of form that they were on (W1 D2). The Hammers have lost just one of their last seven on home soil in the top flight where they have posted a W6 D5 L5 record for the season. Their last two home wins have been with a clean sheet but even finding any way to win this looks to be a stretch. West Ham have taken a clean sheet in 38% of their home games this season but they aren’t likely to shut out City. But can they make an impact themselves going forward? Both teams not to score at bet365 is at even money* (Betting Odds taken at 1:44 a.m. on April 24th, 2018) and perhaps the safest option to roll with. Of the goals that West Ham have come up with on home soil, 60% of them have come in the second half of matches. Marko Arnautovic was on target again in the weekend and he is clearly their best route to goal. West Ham have already lost their other two games played against current top four sides and this is just likely to go the same way.
Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens romped to a 5-0 win against Swansea at home to celebrate their league title success but they want more, they want to set Premier League records. The Citizens have won their last four away games in the top flight, scoring at least two goals in each of those and they were spectacularly good on the weekend in beating Swansea. City have averaged 2.35 goals per away game this season and have given up an average of just 0.7 goals per away game. Manchester City to win to nil at bet365 is at 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 1:44 a.m. on April 24th, 2018). Their top scorer away from home this season is Raheem Sterling with a seven-goal haul so he is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market. Manchester City have won 82% of their away games, that’s what the numbers stack up to and have scored in all but one of their road games. In each of their last five games home and away they have netted at least twice and in the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 2-0 is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 1:44 a.m. on April 24th, 2018). It is party mode for them at the moment but they are still hungry for more.
West Ham v Manchester City Head to Head
Manchester City had a tight squeeze against the Irons earlier this season, winning 2-1 at home thanks to a winner from David Silva seven minutes from time. City are on a four-match winning streak against West Ham in all competitions and are undefeated in five. City have scored at least twice in each of their last five against West Ham, keeping two clean sheets in their last three against them. They won 4-0 at West Ham last season.
Who will win – West Ham v Manchester City Predictions
Man City don’t look as if they have any intention of taking their foot off the gas so expect a performance from them still. They are likely to crack West Ham’s defence easily enough so away win & over 3.5 goals.
