West Ham vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium, London.
A team in the bottom tier of the Premier League hosts probably one of the best teams to ever play in the English top division, Manchester City, proudly guided by Pep Guardiola.
Pep and team are thoroughly enjoying their domination over other teams in the league and are busy with building a dynasty. Guardiola, the man with the Midas touch, is transforming City into one of the most feared sides in Europe. Despite losing Kevin Du Bruyne to injury, they have barely slowed down, and it’s all credit to the wonderful system the bald genius has set in place.
City comes after recording one of the most dominating victories in a Manchester derby. The scoreline was 3-1, but it was really the way the match was played that broke Red Devils’ hearts. United was barely able to touch the ball, and by the time the match ended, Raheem Sterling was vowing the home fans with some fancy step-overs, much to the dismay of Juan Mata.
West Ham had to settle for a draw against the relegation-threatened Huddersfield, and even the draw was a tough one. Huddersfield was leading from the sixth minute before West Ham got a lucky break in the 74th minute of the proceedings. The match ended 1-1.
