West Ham claimed an unlikely win at the Etihad Stadium last season but lightning will not strike twice when they take on Manchester City later today.
I’m still smarting after two near misses yesterday. Bournemouth were denied at the death by Crystal Palace and Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed over the bar in the early stages at Hull and found the side netting with a backheel attempt to scupper a first goalscorer bet.
Hopefully City can get me back on track today but West Ham will be seeking a response to their Europa League exit.
However, the Hammers’ injury list is a long one with Andy Carroll, Andre Gray, Aaron Cresswell and Sofiane Feghouli among their absentees.
They have managed to score in both of their Premier League outings to date this season and City’s defence was breached by both Sunderland and Stoke so we should see goals on Sunday afternoon.
comeon! also offer a multi bet exact score market and the 13/5 on either a 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 victory for City also appeals.
West Ham’s Michail Antonio has found the net once this season and if the visitors are to find the back of the net he’s a likely candidate to grab the goal. The 26-year-old is 17/4 to score at any time on Sunday and that could be worth some consideration if you’re looking for a West Ham goalscorer.
