Manchester City vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
City really loves making other teams’ existence miserable. Their current target is Liverpool, and their objective is to foil Reds’ bid for their first league title in almost three decades. This coming after preventing Jurgen Klopp’s side from going after the Golden Premier League trophy, for going a whole season unbeaten.
As has always been the case with Pep Guardiola’s sides, the Manchester team has delivered when it mattered the most. Right now, they have cut the lead at the top to just a single point, and just some match-days back the lead had the potential to increase to almost up to ten points. But not under Pep’s watch. Never.
West Ham is giving Watford and Wolves intense competition, in their attempt to consolidate themselves as the major players in the Premier League after the traditional top-six. The objective will face a stern test this week, as they are on the road, against one of the best teams in Europe. The fact that their recent away form has not been hot, might also work against them.

Manchester City vs West Ham Prediction
By far, and by a distance, this City side has been one of the best Premier League teams of all time. They are frighteningly consistent and devastating against any opponent, and especially at home. Right now, they are on a six-match winning streak and won 19 of their last 20 fixtures. At home, they won their last seven ties in a row and won 19 of the last 21. They have also scored two or more goals in their last 17 appearances in front of the home crowd.
Get a load of this – the combined scoreline for their last six home fixtures is 33-1. On top of this, they have found the back of the net in 43 of their last 45 overall games.
Moving to face-to-face meetings, the team has won the last seven straight encounters. At this venue, they won nine of the last ten. They also managed to register two or more goals in nine of their last ten appearances at the Etihad.
West Ham, on the other hand, is winless in their last five away matches and lost four of those. They also conceded in their last six in a row, and in 17 of the last 19. Four of their last five had them let in at least two or more goals.
The team from Manchester is an overwhelming favorite for this game, and as such, should record a win of that stature.
