Manchester City v West Ham Betting PredictionsPublished August 25, 2016
Manchester City have played four and won four this season. It’s an impressive start to the season. Yet it feels as though they’re still finding their feet. Scary. Sergio Aguero is banging them in for fun and his supporting cast are impressing in some high-scoring wins. We anticipate another big victory this Sunday when West Ham visit the Etihad. There will be goals. Oh yes, there will be.
We know how good the Hammers can be on their day, especially away from home. But their performances thus far have been riddled with silly errors. Michail Antonio scored their first goal at the Olympic Stadium in the win over Bournemouth last weekend a week after giving away a penalty at Chelsea. He’s the kind of hot-and-cold player that could capitulate in this match.
City can still be a little vulnerable at the back so it wouldn’t be a bad bet to go BTTS. We’re going to be a little bit safer and stick with the overall goal count pick. The Hammers should be boosted by the return of Dimitri Payet too. The playmaker hasn’t started in the EPL yet this season.
