What Trueform says for Man City vs West Ham

The gulf in class between Manchester City and West Ham is there for all to see in our Trueform ratings and few will be betting against the Blues claiming a 13th straight Premier League win.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side have now kept just one clean sheet in their last five games in this competition, so teams are finding ways to get at City’s defence.

We reckon that makes 6/5 for a home win and both sides to score the way to go in our Man City vs West Ham betting predictions.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

Raheem Sterling’s 96th-minute stunner helped us to land a trio of winning bets in our preview of Manchester City’s defeat of Southampton, including 9/2 for the England ace to bag the last goal.

The scenes of sheer jubilation at Etihad Stadium emphasised how Guardiola has built a strong unit determined to maintain their big advantage at the top of the table.

“I think all the supporters create some special moments,” declared the Spaniard. “In the last breath, in the last second, we enjoyed the situation, so you have to celebrate it.

“What happened in the locker room with all the staff, all the people, how happy they were, that’s why our job makes sense. To enjoy these kinds of situations.”

That was a second straight 2-1 success for City, but more goals will be expected against opponents who have conceded a division-high 19 times on the road this term.

The Blues bagged 12 in three league and cup wins over the Hammers last term and this time we like 19/10 for David Silva to strike at any time for our Man City vs West Ham betting tips.

Silva was given a rest when only introduced as a late substitute in midweek and will now be keen to celebrate his new one-year contract extension by hitting the target.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham have only picked up one point from their last four games after being beaten 4-0 at Everton on Wednesday, with David Moyes having to endure an unhappy return to his old stomping ground.

However, it must be noted that Aaron Creswell hit the bar and Manuel Lanzini had a penalty saved when the Hammers were only two down.

Moyes read the riot act to his players after that loss and looked ahead to the City clash by stating: “I think I have got to hope that this is where ‘you never know what happens in football’ comes in!”

We’re willing to give West Ham another chance to show that the spirit displayed in a previous 1-1 draw with Leicester was not a false dawn.

Looking at the Man City vs West Ham odds, 5/1 for Lanzini to make amends for that spot-kick miss is tempting, with the Argentinian having bagged a goal and an assist in his last four appearances.
