West Ham – Manchester City

West Ham are currently 13th in the league standings with 12 points and a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats. The Hammers started the new season in a really tough way, but after this Manuel Pellegrini’s team started winning points on a more regular basis.

In their last game the Londoners visited Huddersfield and made a 1-1 draw. Alex Pritchard opened the score for Huddesfield, but Felipe Anderson equalized for the Hammers 15 minutes before the end.
West Ham are currently in a run of three games without a loss, but now it’s going to be very hard for them against Man City.

The Cityzens are currently in a run of four consecutive wins, achieved over Burnley, Tottenham, Southampton and Manchester United.
In their last game City defeated Manchester United at the big derby at the Etihad. David Siva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan scored for the Cityzens, who outperfomed the Red Devils and deserved to win. Guardiola’s boys once again proved that they are the number one contenders for the title.
