What Trueform says for Man City vs West Ham
Manchester City remain on course for a historic quadruple after Sunday’s EFL Cup success on penalties and will be looking for a routine Premier League win over West Ham.
The Blues have won six straight head-to-head meetings, netting 23 goals and conceding just three in those fixtures.
Those stats make 9/10 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game a percentage pick for our initial Man City vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City won the first of the four trophies they are in contention for this season when getting the better of Chelsea in a shoot-out after a cagey contest at Wembley.
Kevin De Bruyne believes a clean-sweep would be “almost impossible” but this is a good chance to pile the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the table.
“We are going to try to win as many games as possible, obviously,” said the Belgium midfielder. “And if you do that, you must be considered the best team ever, because nobody has done it.”
On the downside, Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte could both face spells on the sidelines after being withdrawn with injuries.
That could make the Blues a little more vulnerable at the back and West Ham have bagged a consolation goal on their last three visits to Etihad Stadium.
Looking at the Man City vs West Ham odds, there is plenty of appeal in 13/10 for a home win and both teams to score.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Laporte, Otamendi, De Bruyne, B Silva, D Silva, Fernandinho, Zinchenko, Sterling, Aguero.
Laporte and Fernandinho join centre-back John Stones (groin) and striker Gabriel Jesus (hamstring) on the sidelines.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham have recovered well from a trio of defeats at Bournemouth, Wimbledon and Wolves, drawing with Liverpool and Crystal Palace before beating Fulham 3-1.
The Hammers enjoyed some good fortune against the Cottagers when Javier Hernandez cancelled out Ryan Babel’s early opener with an equaliser that should have been ruled out for handball.
However, United took full advantage, with Issa Diop and Michail Antonio adding further strikes at London Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini is now looking forward to taking on his former club, although he does not feel City will be affected by Sunday’s gruelling encounter at Wembley.
“Two or three injuries for them will not change their squad,” said the Chilean. “We have played with eight or nine injuries all season, so it won’t be a factor.”
We agree and are adding 19/2 for a 3-1 home victory to our Man City vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Diop, Anderson, Snodgrass, Noble, Antonio, Rice, Hernandez.
Manuel Lanzini is set to be on the bench again, having made his first appearance of the season as a sub against Fulham after recovering from a torn ACL.
Fabian Balbuena and fellow defender Winston Reid remain missing, along with long-term absentees Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Carlos Sanchez.
