Manchester City vs West Ham Match Preview
West Ham manager David Moyes will have a very difficult task when he takes his side to face Manchester City in a bid to end their dreadful run of results. This Manchester City vs West Ham United fixture would be played at The Etihad Stadium on Sunday, December 3, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
City were given a stern test in the midweek with Southampton running them close. They were pushed till the last moment and it required a Raheem Sterling winner in the dying seconds to win 2-1 and grab full points. This followed a 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town and these two results are a proof that Pep Guardiola’s side know how to grind out tough results. With an impeccable record after 14 games (40 pts, W13, D1), the hosts are comfortable at the top with eight points separating them from second-placed Manchester United. But, knowing Pep Guardiola, the hosts will not be complacent ahead of this Manchester City vs West Ham United fixture although they will have one eye on the Manchester derby next weekend.
Moyes’ initiation to the difficult task of keeping West Ham up got off to the worst possible start as the Hammers were hammered down 4-0 by Everton in the midweek. Coming as it did against a side that is struggling for results itself, the loss highlights the magnitude of the task that awaits Moyes. The Hammers stay 18th in the table (10 pts, W2, D4, L8) and are two points away from safety. Not just this game, Moyes has Chelsea and Arsenal in the next couple of weeks making it a very tough start to life at West Ham. They are now winless five matches and that could get extended this weekend.
