Premier League: West Ham vs Manchester City

West Ham vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 23 in Premier League, West Ham host Manchester City at the Olympic Stadium in London. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between West Ham vs Manchester City.

West Ham stand at the middle of the table in Premier League and it will be hard for them to reach the place which leads in any European competition next season, while on the other side they are far from the relegation zone, so I believe that they will stay somewhere in the middle. Despite the fact that they don’t have high ambitions, the match against Manchester City is very important for them and they will be fully motivated to win this game. Big problem for home side is a lot of absences that they face, while on the other side their play-maker Dimitri Payet left the club and joined Marseille few days ago, but they bought Snodgrass from Hull City, so we will see is he able to replace French star. Except him, West Ham brought Fonte from Southampton, so their defence should be better until the end of the season. On the other side, West Ham is in a really good form after they beat Crystal Palace 3-0 and Middlesbrough 1-3, so they hope that can win another game. Team from Manchester could be the big bite for them, but they are playing good and have nothing to lose, so I expect their attacking performance.

Manchester City stand at the 5th position and their performance this season is not at the high level. Before the start of the season they were one of the main candidates for the title, but now they have 13 points less than leader Chelsea. Team from London took an important point against Liverpool at Anfield (1-1) last night, so even if Pep Guardiola and his team win this game, it will be hard to believe that they can win the title. However, visitors want to finish the season in the Top 4 and qualify in the Champions League next season. Bad news for Manchester City could be the absence of their top scorer Sergio Aguero, who is doubtful for this game, but their manager will decide before the match is he ready for this the match against West Ham United. All other players, except Gundogan, who is long-term injured, are ready and they will be fully motivated to win this game, after they failed to take three points in the previous two games. Good news for Man City is that their important defender and captain Kompany has recovered from an injury and should start this game., while Fernandinho is back after suspension.
