In fairness, even the most optimistic and passionate West Ham fans will have been shocked by their side’s fighting spirit in recent weeks, the Hammers following on from a hugely impressive 3-0 win at Leicester City by drawing 3-3 with Tottenham Hotspur, a game in which David Moyes’ men were three goals down at one point.
The East Londoners have banged-in no less than ten goals in their last three Premier League outings, the first four coming against a decent Wolverhampton Wanderers side which could offer nothing in reply. West Ham boss David Moyes may well be more surprised than most given his relative lack of success in recent years, however the Hammers’ excellent run will certainly be most welcome.
A huge challenge will come West Ham’s way this weekend when Manchester City come to town, however there is nothing to suggest that the home side won’t be showing the same fighting spirit which has given them some excellent results.
The main area of concern is West Ham’s leaky defence, the rearguard leaking seven goals in their last three competitive outings. This is an area which Moyes will be eager to improve upon and City will certainly have little difficulty in finding a way through at some point. Nevertheless Pep Guardiola’s men have kept clean sheets in just two of their seven games across competitions this season and as such, we envisage the Hammers also adding to the scoresheet.
Hard to Call
This should be an easy game to call, however this is far from the case. City are understandably favourites but the 7/1 on offer for a Hammers victory doesn’t really make that much sense given their recent showings. We wouldn’t be surprised were City to win this match but to be fair we would be far from shocked were the Hammers to clinch three more points.
Perhaps the safest way to approach this match is to avoid the outright market completely and back goals. This has a goal-fest written all over it with both sides showing plenty of attacking flair while far from solid at the opposite end. With that in mind, we’ll be backing over 3.5 total goals in what has the makings of a thrilling encounter.
