In the 6th round of the Premier League, West Ham will host Manchester City at home – we evaluated the start of the teams in the new championship and prepared a forecast for this meeting.
In the last round of the Premier League , West Ham really created a sensation. The Hammers played back in the match against Tottenham, losing 0: 3 by the 81st minute! This is the first time in the Premier League that someone has recouped, losing (0: 3) on such a minute. And it happened with David Moyes at the head, who returned to the coaching bench after an illness. Many fans jokingly linked West Ham’s recent successes to his absence.
In five rounds, West Ham earned seven points, ending up in ninth place in a very tight table. In the first two rounds, the Hammers lost to Newcastle (0: 2) and Arsenal (1: 2). However, then West Ham defeated Wolverhampton (4: 0), Leicester (3: 0), and now played back in the match with Tottenham (3: 3). That is, the wards of David Moyes have scored at least three goals for three matches in a row.
Oddly enough, West Ham has no injuries. The only questionable is the participation of strikers Sebastian Alla and Michiel Antonio.
Manchester City are going through a difficult period now, but they are already gradually beginning to recover. “Citizens” after five rounds are in a very unusual 11th position. Josep Guardiola’s wards played four matches in the new league, in which they broke with Leeds (1: 1), lost to Leicester (2: 5), and won Wolverhampton (3: 1) and Arsenal (1 : 0). The gap from the leader is six points.
But Manchester City got off to a good start in the Champions League. The Citizens beat Porto at home (3: 1). Taking into account the League Cup, this allowed Guardiola’s players to bring their unbeaten streak to four official matches.
Manchester City’s squad is still suffering from a shortage of staff. From the good – Sergio Aguero returned. From bad – Kevin de Bruyne flew out of action. He is accompanied in the infirmary by players such as Emeric Laporte, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy. All of them are considered the core of Guardiola’s team. The participation of Nathan Ake is also questionable.
West Ham have scored at least three goals in three Premier League games.
West Ham have not conceded on their field in only 1 of 11 previous matches in the Premier League.
Manchester City’s unbeaten streak has reached four official meetings.
The bet “total over 2.5” has played in eight out of ten last official matches of the “citizens”.
Manchester City have beaten West Ham in all nine of their last head-to-head matches. Last season, the “townspeople” in London destroyed the “hammers” (5: 0), and won at “Etihad” (2: 0).
In six of these nine matches, the MC has scored three or more goals against West Ham.

West Ham has no doubt surprised their fans in recent encounters. However, will David Moyes’ charges be able to oppose something to Manchester City? After all, the “townspeople” are consistently crushing West Ham, regardless of who trains the “hammers”. Manchester City are gradually getting used to the game without the main cage of players, and the owners can hardly expect a weak performance of Guardiola’s charges.
Our prediction – Manchester City will not lose + both teams will score for 1.82 in BC 1xbet
