Manchester City vs West Ham (By: Saconex)
England Premier League
Man City (2) vs West Ham (10)
Man City are coming from winning the League Cup vs Chelsea (6). Guardiola will probably rest some players here, question is who. Total record is 21-2-4 with 74-20 in goal difference. They are the highest scoring team of the league and 9 of their 14 home matches this season ended up with over 3.5 goals total. Delph & Mendy both reported doubtful. Also Jesus, Stones, Fernandinho & Laporte reported injured.
West Ham are coming from winning for the first time in 5 matches, when Fulham (19) lost by 3-1. Its hard to predict this team, taking in mind how unstable they are. Total record is 10-6-11 with 35-40 in goal difference. They are in other words in the race for a Europe spot, placed 4 points behind Watford (7). No new missings for the guests, still missing Balbuena, Reid, Yarmolenko, Wilshere & Carlos Sanchez.
* 9 of 10 last meetings ended with a minimum of 3 goals total
* Man City won the reverse fixture by 0-4 back in November
I expect this one to end with plenty of goals, probably both ways. Man City is well known for their strength in attack, and this West Ham defence are lacing goals. The guests will probably get their chances as well, and with good attacking players up front ready they should be capable of scoring as well. Also taking in mind the history record between these two, so overall I like the value we get on this one.
