West Ham United welcome Manchester City to the London Stadium on Saturday lunchtime looking to extend an impressive three-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.
The Hammers started the season poorly with two defeats, but victories over Wolves (4-0) and Leicester (3-0) turned the tide – and a stunning late 3-3 comeback at Tottenham has shown David Moyes‘ side have real spirit.
As for City, Pep Guardiola‘s side have also found their form following a shock 5-2 home defeat to Leicester, winning three of their four games since and tightening up in defence.
Date, time, and venue
West Ham vs Manchester City is scheduled for a 12:30 pm BST kick-off on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
The match will be behind closed doors at London Stadium with no fans due to being present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
West Ham will be hoping that Michail Antonio (hamstring) and Sebastien Haller (knock) are fit to return, while Said Benrahma is in training and could be available.
City have more injury concerns, with Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, and Benjamin Mendy definitely out.
Kevin de Bruyne is a doubt along with Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
The two sides have met 38 times in the Premier League: City have won 23 times to West Ham’s nine, with six draws.
City dominates recent games with West Ham goalless in the last four League meetings, having been beaten 2-0 at the Etihad and 5-0 at home last season.
Prediction: West Ham 2-4 Man City
The Hammers have an atrocious recent against City, and it’s difficult to see the hosts keeping the visitors at bay. West Ham has been much improved of late, but if they let it turn into a slugfest, City should score a few.
