Previewing West Ham vs Manchester City and Manchester United vs Arsenal
Date: April 29, 2018
Kevin De Bruyne’s thunderbolt was the undoubted highlight of Manchester City’s 5-0 win over Swansea on April 22 as the Premier League champions put further gloss on their impressive campaign. They continue to close in on the 100-point barrier and with just four games left, they can still achieve their target.
With plenty still to play for, Manchester City are expected to beat struggling West Ham at the London Stadium on April 29.
The Citizens have been keeping plenty of clean sheets along the way and Both Teams to Score? No will be heavily fancied in this game. It is priced at Evens with Ladbrokes.
West Ham were competitive against Arsenal for the majority of the game but conceded three late goals and were heavily defeated at the Emirates on April 22. They are scrapping for every point and with remaining games against Manchester United and Everton to come, they will be desperate to keep things tight here.
Arsenal’s Dismal Away Form Likely to Continue at Old Trafford
Considering Arsenal’s recent form on the road, it’s unsurprising to see Manchester United priced up as odds-on favourites for this clash at Old Trafford. They are heavily fancied to collect all three points here.
Jose Mourinho’s side can be backed at 4/9 and will be expected to prevail against the travel-sick Gunners. Arsene Wenger’s side also come off the back of a tough Europa League fixture against Atletico Madrid. They were defeated in their last Premier League game which followed the European competition when they went down 2-1 at St.James’ Park.
It’s not necessarily expected to be a high-scoring game between the pair and Under 2.5 Goals could be the value pick at 6/5 with Ladbrokes.
Romelu Lukaku is in excellent goalscoring form and the striker is priced at 11/10 to score anytime in this fixture.
