Manchester City started this season amazing and they want to continue with good performance against West Ham and take another three points. In the first round they beat Sunderland 2-1, while last week they took three points from Stoke City beating them 1-4. Meanwhile, Manchester City qualified in the group phase of the UEFA Champions League after they eliminated Steaua Bucuresti beating them again, this time 1-0 upfront their supporters. Pep Guardiola made very good atmosphere in team and they want to continue with victories. Last season, home side failed to beat West Ham in both matches, so they will be fully motivated to win this game. In the next round they will play against city rivals Manchester United, so three points today is very important for them. Kun Aguero, who scored 6 goals in 4 matches in all competitions, is in the great form. He was rested against Steaua and will be fresh for the clash against team from London.

West Ham didn’t make the good start of the season and the match against Manchester City doesn’t come in the right moment for them. Visitors lost in the first round against Chelsea 2-1, but they have improved their performance and beat Bournemouth 1-0 last week. Meanwhile, they played in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League against Astra and unexpectedly lost 0-1, so we will not watch them in Europe this season. They know that Man City are big favorites to win this game, so one point from this match would be huge for them. Big problem for West Ham could be the fact that they have many problems with injuries. Last season they have managed to beat City at Etihad, but it will be hard for them to repeat that success.

Team News

Home side bought new goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, but he will not debut on this match. Gundogan, Iheanacho, Kompany, Sagna and Sane are out. On the other side, visitors will be without Ayew, Caroll, Cresswell, Feghouli, Henry and Sakho, while Payet is doubtful, but he should be in the first eleven.

West Ham: Adrian; Byram, Collins, Reid, Masuaku; Noble, Kouyate; Antonio, Payet, Tore; Valencia.

Manchester City vs West Ham Prediction

Home side are favorites to win this game, but the odd for home win is very low, so the better betting option is to bet on goals. I expect open match between Manchester City vs West Ham and many goals. Odd for 3 or more goals is not impressive, but it should be easy winning bet.

Manchester City vs West Ham Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.50 (Bet365)
