Manchester City vs West Ham
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-Off at 12.30 UK
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester.
Manchester City will be looking to continue their amazing streak of results on Saturday afternoon when they host West Ham United in the first game of the Matchday No 26 in Premier League.
The Citizens won as many as 13 on the spin in the league, a streak that has catapulted them ten points clear at the top of the standings. It would now take a miracle to happen for Pep Guardiola’s machinery not to win the title come May.
Nevertheless, despite the mentioned advantage, Manchester City do not seem to be slowing down at all. They will go into this weekend’s tie with the Hammers as clear favourites to win, although the visitors have been on a good run of their own lately.
David Moyes has done miracles with this West Ham outfit this season. The Hammers currently hold the fourth position in the Premier League ladder, sitting two points above Chelsea and as many as five points ahead of the defending champions Liverpool.
Manchester City vs West Ham Head-to-head
- West Ham are one of the rare teams to have held Manchester City to a draw this season. They managed to fight their way to a 1-1 draw when the two sides met each other in the first part of the campaign.
- The Citizens have won eleven subsequent clashes against West Ham beforehand.
- Interestingly, none of the last two H2H clashes saw three or more goals scored.
Manchester City vs West Ham Prediction
The Hammers have also done well defensively of late. They won three and drew one of the last four league matches conceding just two goals in the process.
Based on the last couple of H2H games and the teams’ recent defensive form, we are tempted to back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 2.37 here.
