FA Cup: West Ham vs Manchester City

West Ham vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 1/32 finals of the FA Cup, West Ham host Manchester City at London Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between West Ham vs Manchester City.

West Ham have improved their performance after few poor results in Premier League and managed to win three games in a row, but after that they lost in the last two games. Their priority is to improve their games in league, but it doesn’t mean that they are not interested in the FA Cup match against Manchester City. In the last round of Premier League, West Ham played against Manchester United and lost 0-2, but despite that loss they played very good on that match and created few good chances, but after Feghouli was sent-off, it was very hard to secure their net. Home side didn’t lose against Man City in the last two matches upfront their supporters, so they will try to beat them and go through in the next round. If the match between West Ham vs Manchester City finish without winner, the next match will be played at Etihad and there will be very hard for Slaven Bilic‘s men to make something, so they have to attack City from the first minute and eliminated them, but visitors have amazing attack, so it won’t be easy.

Manchester City don’t shine this season in Premier League, so it will be hard for them to win the title, but there are many matches left until the end of the season. Their have improved their performance and won 4 of their last 5 games, so they want to beat West Ham and stay in a race for FA Cup trophy. Good news for Pep Guardiola is that their main striker Kun Aguero back in the squad after he served 4 matches ban, but he didn’t start the match against Burnley for unknown reason (Many fantasy football managers were disappointed by his decision). He had started the second half-time and helped his team to get three valuable points by scoring the goal. Visitors are interested in this competition, so they will probably play with the strongest possible lineups and try to win this game and avoid the second game with the same rivals. Manchester City beat the same rivals 3-1 at Etihad, in the first part of the season in Premier League, but this game will not be easy for them.
