West Ham vs Manchester City 23 Jan 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

USA TODAY Sports

Manchester City are coming off a big win and will have high hopes that they can continue this good form as they travel to London where they will face West Ham in what is set to be a good game. Both teams are exciting to watch and it should be a game filled with plenty of goals and entertainment.

West Ham are a team in good form and although they lost to Newcastle last week, they will be confident that they can turn things around with the help of their superstar player, Dmitri Payet. This team is so much better with the French superstar around and now that he is back from injury, Hammers supporters are starting to believe again. That being said, they will be facing some tough opposition this weekend and I think it will be a little too much for the Hammers.

Manchester City, as we all know, are filled with superstars all throughout the park. They will go into this match confident and that will be good for the Sky Blues as they look to take first place. I think that they will cruise home here but statistics show that they will concede. Kompany is still out and without him, that backline is not very steady so I expect a few goals to be leaked at the back.

As far as betting is concerned, betting on the result is not a good play since City will win but we are not getting good odds and taking a handicap with the team on the road is not profitable. That is why taking both teams to score is the best option here. Kompany is out so City will probably not keep a clean sheet and I am almost certain that City will score so that is a good bet in my opinion. 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
