Man City VS West Ham

Preview

Manchester City and West Ham face off at Etihad Stadium on this match of the 33rd round of the Premier League.

The Citizens are going through a rough patch with 4 losses on their last 5 matches, their last win against the modest WBA. They are currently the 4th placed team with 61 points.

West Ham come into this match riding a 1-1 home draw versus Stoke. On their last away match they faced off against Leicester having lost 2-1. They are currently the 9th placed team with 43 points.

As expected, the head to head history favours the home team. City has won 5 of the last 6 matches between the clubs.

Analysis of Manchester City

Manchester City is facing a slew of important absences for this match. Bony, Boyata and Jovetic will not play with Kompany also doubtful.

Although their last exhibitions have been subpar, City is known to have a demolishing presence on the pitch with well above average players on all positions.

City should adopt for this match a 4-3-3 tactical setup with Jesus Navas, Silva and Aguero (who scored 2 on their last match against Man United) up front.


Confirmed Lineup: J. Hart, E. Mangala, P. Zabaleta, M. Demichelis, A. Kolarov, Y. Touré, Jesús Navas, David Silva, Fernando, S. Agüero.
Coach: F. Lampard, M. Pellegrini.

Analysis of West Ham United

Valencia and Sahko will not be playing for West Ham due to injury. As such we expect that the visiting team will change its tactical setup to a 4-3-3 formation where Carlton Cole will be the danger man.

The mid field is the most dangerous weapon of Allardyce’s team. With great solidity and combative spirit together with above average technical quality, they are a force to be reckoned with.

We expect Villa to adopt a more direct style of play for this match. As such it is likely that their big man up front will be seeing a lot of action.


Confirmed Lineup: Adrián, J. Collins, C. Jenkinson, W. Reid, A. Cresswell, C. Kouyaté, M. Noble, A. Song, S. Downing, C. Cole, E. Valencia.
Coach: S. Allardyce.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be for both team to score at least once. Based on the statistical analysis and the way both team value the offensive dynamic over the defensive side of the game we are expecting a lot of clear goal opportunities for both sides.
