West Ham United v Manchester City Preview, Premiership, Saturday 23rd January 2016

West Ham have been in great form recently having lost just one of their last nine league matches played and that defeat came last time out away against struggling Newcastle United 2-1 and it will be interesting to see how the players respond in this tough looking fixture at home to Manchester City come Saturday evening.

Manchester City have also been in good form lately having lost two of their last nine league matches played, but Manuel Pellegrini’s side head into this game unbeaten in their last five and with a convincing 4-0 victory at home against Crystal Palace last time out and Sergio Aguero now back firing on all cylinders the visitors will be confident of extending that run.

West Ham United Team News:

The hosts have a number of casualties for this game with Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll and Manuel Lanzini all out with respective injury related problems. James Tomkins is also unlikely to feature as he struggles with a knock but Joey O’Brien is in contention to start this one having returned back to the squad.

Manchester City Team News:

The visitors also have some key players missing with Vincent Kompany, and Samir Nasri both still receiving treatment for long term injury problems. Fernandinho returned back to training with the squad this week having missed the last three games and Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfried Bony are also both close to a return.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

281 Goals have been scored in the previous 92 matches played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.05.

122 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 45 matches played between the two clubs at the Boleyn Stadium which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 2.71.

Both sets of statistics seem to suggest that this game should see between at least 2 or 3 Goals scored on Saturday evening and betting markets such as Both Teams to Score, Total Match Goals 2 or 3 and Over 2.5 Goals all look good options for this match.

West Ham United v Manchester City Match Betting Odds Market

West Ham United are currently a best price available of 22/5 with with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account and this does look a bit overpriced considering they have home advantage and have won their last three games at home on the bounce.

The Draw has not happened in either of the previous five meetings played, so some people might argue that one is definitely overdue and with both teams having been in good form recently it could be a wise move to get something on this game finishing all square as your main cover bet at a current best price of 3/1 with SkyBet – Bet £10 & Receive £40 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account.

Manchester City are the clear favourites to win this game on Saturday evening and are a current best price of 8/11 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account and with a comfortable 4-0 win last time out, many people will also see this as great value, although for me it does look a bit short considering their recent form.

West Ham United v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

West Ham will be confident of keeping their home form going in this game as with victories in their last three matches at the Boleyn Stadium on the bounce and unbeaten since a 4-3 defeat to AFC Bournemouth back on the 22nd August last year, the hosts definitely look overpriced at their current odds on offer and do look great value in this game.

However, with Manchester City having trounced Crystal Palace 4-0 last time out and Sergio Aguero and David Silva now back in the squad and making things happen City do look a much better side than they have done in quite a few weeks and the players confidence will obviously be very high about their chances in this match.

These two sides have not battled out a draw in any of their previous five encounters over recent season’s and we have to go back to 3rd of November 2012 to find the last time a game did finish all square, but with both sides in very good form at the moment I can possibly see this one ending up in a draw and this also looks good value at the current odds on offer.

Onto some predictions then and with a game that could so easily swing either way, the safest option from a betting point of view does seem to be the goals market and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip has been tough to decide on but I have opted for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero to continue this goalscoring record in front of goal and grab the first goal of this match as with two to his name in that 4-0 victory against Palace last time out he looks a good choice.
