Tip Manchester City - West Ham
Prediction published on November 26, 2021 at 3:20 AM - Modified on November 26, 2021 at 3:23 AM
Manchester City will host high flying West Ham United in the 13th round of matches in the Premier League. The two sides had mixed results in their last league games; City’s 3-0 win over Everton seeing them stay second on 26 points as West Ham lost to Wolves to stay fourth with 23 points. Manchester City are coming from another key win in the Champions League, beating PSG 2-1 to set a run of four straight wins. They’ve scored two or more goals in the four matches and three of them have produced over 2.5 goals. This will be the second meeting between these two sides this season; the first was in the League Cup and West Ham won on post match penalties. Generally, City have dominated this fixture; in the last five meetings, they have three wins.
West Ham United haven't beaten City in regular time the last 13 competitive matches; their last win in this fixture was back in 2015. This is a stat they will be keen to change, and they have the right push, having returned to winning ways on Thursday, beating Rapid Vienna 2-0 away in the Europa League. They will hope to bounce back in the Premier League too, at one of the toughest venues to play. They lost 1-0 to Wolves in the last league game and one quality they bring to this game is in attack. In the last five matches they’ve failed to score in one, and in the remaining four, they’ve scored two or more goals. Three of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and they have just one clean sheet in those five matches.
