Manchester City -1000

TV: NBC

In the English Premier League, Manchester City are set to play against West Ham at Etihad Stadium in Manchester. 

Manchester City were defeated in their previous outing as they lost 2-0 away from home against Tottenham. While the result was disappointing, Manchester City were the stronger team for most of the match but they were reduced to 10-men during the second half which resulted in the momentum of the match changing. It has been a poor season for Manchester City as they have failed to compete with Liverpool for the Premier League title. That being said, the Champions League is still a tournament that Manchester City could win and they will hope to return to winning ways so that they are in good form. 

On the other side of the coin, West Ham United have struggled this season and are currently in the relegation zone. At the moment, West Ham United have 24 points from their 25 games. In their previous match, West Ham United only managed a 3-3 draw at home against Brighton. It was a poor performance by West Ham United as the team only managed 35% of the possession at home. Robert Snodgrass played well but the rest of the players were poor. West Ham are desperately in need of points but I see them struggling against Manchester City. 

West Ham United and Manchester City played each other earlier in the season at London Stadium. The match was won 5-0 by Manchester City. 

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. Despite recent results, Manchester City have still been playing good football and the team is significantly stronger than West Ham United. There is a big gap between the two teams and I see Manchester City winning 3-0 or 4-0. The over 2.5 goals seems like a good wager since I see Manchester City scoring 3 or more goals.
