Manchester City had a lot of unpleasant moments in the last round of the Premier League. At first glance, the blues had a near-total advantage throughout the White Hart Lane match, but they eventually conceded a 0-2 loss. City played for most of the second half with 10 men due to the red card of the Ukrainian national Zinchenko.
Guardiola footballers can justify themselves again with a lack of chance after creating plenty of goal situations in front of Tottenham’s net and also hit the posts twice. The style of the Spanish manager is already quite predictable, at least for most of English teams. He already declared himself a fixed term of 5 years, as a City manager, and this period is already running out.
In today’s match, the „citizens“ have nothing to play for but victory. In doing so, the result should be eloquent enough to reassure most of their loyal fans. In the Sunday Premier League game, they meet at their stadium the tough West Ham squad, who are likely to be getting everything they could from Etihad.
The City has a certain advantage in their matches with hammers, and the London team has a poor away form as well. In my opinion, David Moise’s players can steal something from the Etihad Stadium due to the obvious problems the „citizens“ experience in their midfield. The Hammers have always been capable to win against high flying teams.
The last clash between City and West Ham ended with a tiny victory for the Manchester team. This result can also happen in today’s match, but mind the qualities of Londoners who will fight for every point of their upcoming matches till the end of the season.
My prediction is for a minimum City win, with the most likely result could be 2:1 or 3:1. You can also count on more than 2.5 goals scored in the match.
