City’s Rampant Home Form Faces Hammers’ Scoring Streak

Key Stats
– Manchester City have won their last 13 home games across all competitions.
– West Ham have scored in 12 consecutive matches.
– City have scored a whopping 27 goals in their last six home games, averaging 4.5 goals per game.

Manchester City will host West Ham United in a highly anticipated Premier League affair, with the Citizens keen to keep their control over the title race. The Citizens are coming into this clash in fantastic form, which is even more impressive at home, where they have won their last 13 games across all competitions.

West Ham, on the other end, are still involved in the relegation battle but are heading north in good spirits, having recorded positive results lately and managed to score in 12 consecutive games. I do expect this to be a very open match in which we should see a few goals.

Injuries and Absences Create Uncertainty

Kevin De Bruyne missed City’s recent win at Fulham due to injury, and the Belgian might not be available even in this match. Nathan Ake has also been out for the last three games, and at the moment of writing, it is not clear if he will feature against West Ham. The Hammers have some worries of their own, as they will be travelling without Gianluca Scamacca and Kurt Zouma.

Man City To Win Both Halves, West Ham Over 2 Cards & Man City Over 6 Corners

Despite the potential absences, which do bring some uncertainties, it is difficult to predict anything other than a solid Manchester City win. Pep Guardiola’s men have been impressive and have scored 27 goals in their last six home games, averaging 4.5 per game.

West Ham have made some progress, especially in front of goal, but the gulf in quality between the two teams is huge, and I do expect the Citizens to be leading already in the first half and increase the margin in the second half.

We should play this option as part of a bet builder with William Hill, with the second selection being West Ham to have over 2 cards.

With the Hammers trying to stop the skilled City players, you can expect they will have to resort to some fouls. Moyes’ team is already averaging 1.2 yellow cards per game, and it is plausible that this will increase at the Etihad Stadium, reaching at least 2.

The last selection of the bet builder treble is Man City over 6 corners. Pep Guardiola’s team is known to dominate possession both at home and away and create plenty of scoring opportunities.

I do expect the same to happen on Wednesday night as City need the three points for the title race, and since they already have an average of 6.4 corners per game in the Premier League, it is likely they will have at least 7 in this home affair.

Goal-fest Expected as Both Teams Have a Point to Prove

As City’s unstoppable home form meets West Ham’s impressive scoring streak, I do foresee an exciting, goal-heavy encounter. A 3-1 win for the hosts seems plausible, also considering West Ham’s recent defensive woes and City’s attacking qualities. In the second half, we expect City to lower the tempo a bit, as with the Champions League semi-final looming, Pep Guardiola might be tempted to withdraw some key players if City secure a comfortable lead.
