Manchester City welcome West Ham to the Etihad in this Premier League match – City know a win is paramount here to keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the table.   

Predictions

Man City are neck and neck with Liverpool in the Premier League table and the Reds are coming off a massive game with fierce rivals Manchester United. Any slip up between now and the end of the season would allow City to take the upper hand in the title race.

West Ham are comfortably in mid table but were winless in their last four Premier League games going into this weekend – and lost 4-0 the last time they played the Blues in November at the City of London Stadium.

Man City have a busy schedule coming up with the Carabao Cup Final and a Champions League Round of 32 Second Leg game against Schalke sandwiched in between matches against the Hammers, Bournemouth and Watford. Manager Pep Guardiola might rotate his squad with those matches in mind.                                                           

West Ham are relatively safe from relegation but a good bit off the pace for a Europe League Qualification spot and are also out of the FA Cup after losing 4-2 to AFC Wimbledon and have nothing left to play for this season. A City win, 3-0, looks to be on the cards.

Betting Tips

Man City to win to nil                                                        

Man City have won all but one of their home games in the league this season, their only defeat was a 2-3 loss to Crystal Palace in December – and have conceded just twice in their last four at home.                                      

Total goals under 3.5 at Evens

West Ham have only found the back of the net once in their last four games on their travels in the Premier League and that might be why the bookies are offering a massive 22/1 for a win for the visitors. That lack of goals though plays into an under 3.5 goals in the game bet.

Statistics

Head to Head

In the last 100 meetings between the sides in all competitions, Man City that have won 51 times to West Ham’s 33 and there have been 16 draws – Man City have won the last six meetings both home and away between league and cup.  

Stats

  • West Ham are winless in their last five games in all competitions and have won just four times on their travels in the Premier League – against Everton, Newcastle, Fulham, and Southampton respectively.
  • Man City have recovered from their blip in December where they lost back to back games in the league for the first time since December 2016 – other than a loss away to Newcastle at the end of January the Citizens have won 13 times since losing to Palace and Leicester.   
  • West Ham will be hoping to somehow repeat the score line from the last time they beat City at the Etihad – which was a 2-1 win in September 2015 thanks to goals from Victor Moses and Diafra Sakho.
  • Man City will be out to get the job done here to keep them in the hunt for winning back to back Premier League titles – their recent goal scoring record over the Hammers of 21 goals scored in the last six meetings between the sides would make a 3-0 win not too unlikely.
