West Ham vs Manchester City: prediction for the English Premier League match

West Ham take on reigning champions Manchester City in the first round of the new Premier League season. What to expect from this fixture? Look out for our prediction below.

West Ham United

West Ham have become much stronger in recent seasons - new sponsors allowed to spend more money on transfers, which led to better results and more interesting football. Last year, the team had a very successful European campaign - the Hammersovercame Lyon and Sevilla to reach the semifinals, where they lost to Eintracht. In the English Premier League, West Ham were fighting for a top-four finish, but ended up in 7th place with 56 points from 16 wins and eight draws. 

In the last two pre-season friendlies, Davis Moyes' charges drew against Luton Town (1:1) and Lens (0:0). In the summer, West Ham spent 112 million on transfers. The club bought Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo for 36 million, Nayef Aguerd from Rennes (35 million) and Maxwel Cornet from Burnley (20.7 million). 

Manchester City

Manchester City confidently qualified from their group in the Champions League, but after beating Sporting CP and Atlético Madrid, the Sky-Blues yielded to the eventual champions Real Madrid in the semifinal match.

Pep Guardiola's team had an almost flawless Premier League campaign, securing 93 points from 38 games and scoring 99 goals while conceding less than once per game on average. In the first official match of the new season, the reigning Premier League champions lost to Liverpool (1:3) in the Community Shield match.

Tonight, the visiting team will be without Laporte and Mendy.

There is a number of new players at West Ham who are yet to establish a relationship with their teammates. We think that the Hammers will need a few weeks to pick up form. Man City won 7 of the last 10 head-to-head games, and should prevail in the upcoming fixture. 

Second bet — Manchester City to win by 3 goals

Prediction: Manchester City to win by 3 goals
