West Ham United vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting Odds - Premier League Picks
August 08, 2019
West Ham United and defending English Premier League champions Manchester City meet at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon (12.30pm kick off, local time).
The Hammers, with former City manager Manuel Pellegrini as the coach, have made a few decent looking additions to their squad over the summer and will be optimistic going into the new season.
This is probably as good a time as any for the Hammers to be playing the City, with the possibility that they might just catch Pep Guardiola’s team off their guard before they find their best form.
That said, City have already won their first silverware of the new season after beating Liverpool in a penalty shootout to claim the Community Shield last weekend. They also won 32 of their 38 league games last season so, even on their rare off days, they usually manage to find a way to win games.
