West Ham vs Manchester City
West Ham will host Manchester City in the 13th round of England Premier League.
West Ham are in the second part of the table at 13th place and with Manuel Pellegrini ahead they earned 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. Not so positive stats before a home game against the champions of England for the last season. Also in the last round they avoid a defeat against Huddersfield- you know the situation in the club is not going ok, when you can't beat maybe the worst team in Premier League for this season. To make the things even worse- West Ham have a long list of missing players- Robert Snodgrass is suspended, Ryan Fredericks(d), Winston Reid(d), Manuel Lanzini(m), Carlos Sanchez(m) and Andriy Yarmolenko(f) are all out, while Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere are major doubts. So, players like Arnautovic and Anderson are the main reliable players to make the miracle happen and West Ham to take something from this game.
On the other side are Manchester City. Yeah, it's true they have a CL game against Lyon in a few days, but this team is so dominant in both domestic league and CL, so missing points against a team like West Ham in injury crisis will be a big surprise. They have excellent players in all lines and the missing players are the same for a long time- Bravo(GK), Mendy(d), Mangala(d), Kevin de Bruyne(m) and this time together with Bernardo Silva(m). Still with attacking players like Aguero, Sterling, Mahrez and Sane+ midfield line- David Silva, Fernandinho and Gundogan we can expect goals and again goals by Pep Guardiola's team. Their defensive line looks also very solid and with Ederson as a keeper it's not surprising they received only 5 goals from the start of the Premier League.
H2H Manchester City are ruthless against West Ham- win after win in the last six games, including 3 times away from home in London with 0:5, 0:4 and 1:4. Will be a surprise for anyone to say I am going with -1.5 AH for the guests here, even they have CL game against Lyon after a few days? City are too good for West Ham right now!
