Betting prediction: Manchester City 2-0 West Ham

Though the prediction may lend to the assumption that Manchester City may run out comfortable winners, West Ham United should prove to be tricky customers on the day. City’s record at the back this season is impressive, however, so it would not be surprising if they earned yet another clean sheet while continuing their winning run of late.

Manchester City vs West Ham: Recommended bets

Correct Score: Man City 2-0

Maybe a little bias considering my overall prediction, but it is mostly rooted in the fact that City genuinely seems unbeatable recently, but also untroubled along the way. West Ham has performed exceptionally well compared to last season, but even better sides than them have not stood toe-to-toe against City this term and lived to tell the tale.

Goals Over/Under: Under 2.5

West Ham is in good form of late; in fact, they are third in the form table and are one of the better scoring sides in the Premier League of late, but, again, City is City. West Ham also has not been brilliant at the back recently, allowing over a goal per match in the last six, which is something that could be exploited by Pep’s men, while being as resolute at the back as ever.

Manchester City vs West Ham: Match preview

It was a very Manchester City-type performance midweek when Pep Guardiola’s men ran out 2-0 winners against Marco Rose’s Borussia Mönchengladbach on Wednesday. Goals on either side of halftime from Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus confirmed City remain in the driver’s seat after they held Die Fohlen to just three shots over the course of ninety minutes in a comfortable result.

The result is exactly what City fans would have wanted, but also Pep as well as continuity at this point of the season is absolutely vital. Still in the hunt for a quadruple this term, continuing to string results together in a relatively comfortable manner is imperative if City are to make sure it does not all fall off its hinges. Results – and competitions – are all connected and it is very easy for one poor result in one to spill over into the rest. But where others may struggle, City should be able to power through on the back of incredible squad depth that should be able to bear the burdens of trying to win everything on offer in one season.

Kevin De Bruyne was not brought off the bench against Gladbach and yet City still coasted to a comfortable result; with the Belgian playmaker fully rested for the West Ham match. Few sides in Europe would be able to rest their best player in the Champions League and still walk the result. Much the same can be said about the fact that City spent a portion of their season with him unavailable and yet they are still as dangerous.

You do not go on a run of nineteen straight wins across all competitions on a fluke. Manchester City is the real deal, and while it is doubtful that the winning run will continue for the remainder of the season, it may be that they have to be their own worst enemy for them to have the breaks applied to their campaign.

West Ham do not need to change a thing; results speak for themselves

David Moyes and West Ham United keep on rolling in the Premier League, defying quite a few who continue to expect them to fall off and regress to the mean. Posting a record of 7-2-1 in their last ten league outings, with their only loss coming at the hands of a temporary blip of Liverpool coming good, should be enough for many to dispel the notion that maybe the Hammers are somehow not where they belong on merit.

It is true that there are some underperforming sides that – on a “normal” year – would be ahead of a side that did not finish that far ahead of a relegation spot during 2019-20. Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Everton are all expected to be ahead of West Ham both in terms of what each side has on offer in their respective squads but also given who is on their touchline. Perhaps the sweetest thing about the season the Hammers are perpetrating is the vindication of a manager in Moyes who when at Everton was lauded for his time there, but heavily (and perhaps unfairly) criticised for his time at Manchester United. He struggled while at Real Sociedad as well, and the same can be said of the Glaswegian during his horrific period at Sunderland and his first spell at the London Stadium.

But what Moyes is guiding the Hammers to, who are on pace for their best finish in the Premier League since 1992-93, has a similar feel to the successful seasons he had on the touchline at Goodison Park. Eight top-seven finishes during his eleven-year spell at Everton, including four appearances in European competitions, while playing a brand of football that highlighted the strengths of his players to their maximum was a highly successful platform that he built in the blue-half of Liverpool.

Similar can be seen in London this season; it’s not about being expansive or possession for possession’s sake, but how do you get the best out of a collective bunch. Jesse Lingard’s recent comments about his period of settling while on loan from Manchester United and enjoying his football speaks to the simplicity being shown in the type of football Moyes wants his team to play. All that matters is consistency, and that is something that only a few clubs in the Premier League can boast over the course of the entire season. If little changes on that front, there is a real chance the Hammers can dare to dream about European nights next term.

Manchester City team news vs West Ham

Nathan Aké remains the only absentee for Pep Guardiola as City returns home after a successful European midweek.

Pep may rotate some of his team for the clash against West Ham given the depth at his disposal, but City was comfortable against Borussia Mönchengladbach and could rotate in the second-leg, allowing for City to deploy their best XI against a tricky West Ham.

West Ham team news vs Manchester City

Angelo Ogbonna and Arthur Masuaku are the only guaranteed players unavailable to David Moyes, while Andriy Yarmolenko is a doubt for selection.

Moyes has little incentive to change the team that beat Tottenham 2-1 last weekend and could very easily keep the same team.
