Traditionally, each Premier League weekend ends on Sunday with the last 2 games. This weekend, we will see West Bromwich taking on Middlesbrough before the last clash of the day, the game between Manchester City and West Ham.
The two European participants are keen to continue their good form in the domestic league, with West Ham clearly putting more emphasis on their league games than their European ones. Will it be enough to return with points from the Etihad Stadium?
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds & Tips – Man City vs West Ham
Their record so far isn’t very encouraging. A small 1-0 win against Bournemouth and a 1-2 defeat against Chelsea, coupled with some very bad European outings (losing Europa League group stage qualification against Romanian minnows Astra) show that the team is far from its top form.
The players haven’t found their momentum yet and the squad looks nothing like the one that battled for top-4 last season. Fatigue will also play an important role in their next game, many players spending the full 90 minutes on the pitch on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Guardiola’s side are on a high, winning all their games this season. They sit top of the Premier League with a 6-2 goal difference and won both legs against Steaua Bucharest in Champions League qualifications, even after resting more than half a team on Wednesday.
Aguero, Silva, and De Bruyne are set to start again versus West Ham and will surely be looking to produce the attacking football they are so famous for.
Due to the circumstances written above, we back Guardiola’s side to win this game. Home ground advantage plus their current good form should prove too much for West Ham.
If you’re looking for safer bets, look at City to score, and if you’re looking for high odds, we fancy a City to win & under 3,5 goal game. 1-0 or 2-0 are our favorite scores since West Ham will probably put up a decent fight in defense.
Result/Total Goals – Man City & Under 3.5: 2.20 or 6/5
