West Ham United and Manchester City face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at London Stadium.
West Ham United comes into this game playing well and they currently sit with 7 points on the season which puts them in 9th place in the standings. West Ham has won two of their last three games in the EPL with the only draw coming in their last game. In that game against Tottenham, West Ham was down 3-0 but they scored three goals in the last ten minutes and pulled out a draw. That type of comeback has to give them a lot of confidence heading into this game. Over the last three games, West Ham has scored ten goals. In this game, West Ham can't fall behind and keep playing with fire. If West Ham could get the first goal early, that would go a long way in helping them come away with a victory.
On the other side of this matchup is Manchester City who haven’t been as dominant as they probably hoped and they currently sit in 11th place in the standings. Manchester did have a midweek game in the Champions League against Porto, a game they won 3-1. Manchester City’s last game in the Premier League was against Arsenal, a game they came away with a 1-0 victory. In that game it was Raheem Sterling who scored the goal. In this game against West Ham if they come away with a victory, the one thing they can’t have happen is to let their foot off the gas. This is a West Ham that has proven they will continue to fight no matter how many goals they are down.
West Ham United is a scrappy team and they are going to keep this game close in this one. Look for West Ham’s offense to put at least one goal in the back of the net which makes West Ham +1.5 the play.
