Premier League: Manchester City x West Ham, Match Preview, Odds and Predictions(19/05/2024)

To win the Premier League, Manchester City only has to beat West Ham United on the last day of play. They would have won four league championships in a row, a feat never accomplished in the division.

While Arsenal came close, Pep Guardiola's team will probably beat them for the second year running. Tottenham Hotspur, the Gunners' north London rivals, were unable to do them a favour this week as they fell 2-0 to City.

Erling Haaland struck both of their goals against Spurs, giving him 27 goals in 30 Premier League appearances this season.

This weekend, City will take on a West Ham United team that will be saying goodbye to David Moyes. His last game in command, therefore he wants to go on a strong note. Moyes deserves a fantastic farewell since he helped the Hammers win the Europa Conference League title the previous season. They hadn't won a major trophy since the 1980 FA Cup.

Moyes departs West Ham in excellent standing, although without any European football in the next season. We'll see how former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Julen Lopetegui does in his new role.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

With a season-defining 2-0 win against Tottenham in midweek, Manchester City, the hosts, are now only 90 minutes away from creating more Premier League history. Pep Guardiola's team have gone on another incredible domestic frenzy this season, starting Sunday's match at the Etihad with a two-point lead over Athe arsenal. 

With them comfortably in control of winning the Premier League for a record fourth time, the former Barcelona manager ought to have a true celebration atmosphere in his camp. The city has not lost a single domestic game since the beginning of December, even though it was devastated to lose the Champions League last month when it gave up its first European championship. Likewise, Guardiola's team is a landslide underdog this weekend, having won their last nine consecutive games against top-flight opponents.

As for the visitors, even if West Ham may have staged a pivotal comeback at home against Luton over the weekend, winning 3-1, the Hammers have had a great deal of trouble finding any consistency since the start of the year. David Moyes, formerly the manager of Manchester United, could not have asked for a more difficult task with Sunday's trip to the Etihad. 

Just four Premier League wins at the start of the year have allowed West Ham to maintain their reputation for obvious defensive problems. Last seen travelling and suffering a notorious 5-0 thrashing at the hands of London rivals Chelsea, the Hammers have astonishingly let up 12 goals in their last three away Premier League games. Similarly, Moyes' side has lost all seven of their previous visits to the Etihad, so they are up against it.

Our Predictions

Manchester City to win @1.10 on

Manchester City are currently 90 minutes away from creating more Premier League history after securing what should be a season-defining 2-0 victory away at Tottenham in midweek. Heading into Sunday's match at the Etihad with a two-point lead over Arsenal, Guardiola's team is legitimately a landslide candidate. We should have a wonderful party atmosphere in the blue half of Manchester this Saturday, meeting a West Ham team that has remarkably shipped 12 goals in their last three top-flight matches away from the London Stadium.
