Manchester City may be sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table but they have been made to work very hard for their last six points with late goals needed for wins over Southampton and Huddersfield Town. Nevertheless their form in the Premier League has been truly outstanding this season with forty points out of a possibly forty-two and an eight point gap separating them from the rest of the chasing pack after the opening fourteen matches. Looking at all competitions, the Citizens have gone nineteen matches without defeat and it is hardly a surprise to hear pundits claiming that Pep Guardiola’s men could be emulating the ‘Invincible’ Arsenal team of thirteen years ago.

It hardly need saying that we fancy City’s chances against West Ham United this weekend, the visiting Hammers struggling through some utterly dreadful form at the moment and showing no signs of any improvement following the appointment of David Moyes as manager. Just one goal and one point have been taken from Moyes’ three matches in charge and they head into Sunday’s fixture on the back of an emphatic 4-0 defeat to an Everton side which had been pretty woeful prior to this win.

Moyes claimed that there were positives to be taken from his side’s latest defeat although the fact remains that West Ham conceded four goals and scored none against a side which in their previous two outings had conceded no less than nine. We don’t see any positives there. Indeed there is absolutely nothing at all to suggest that things will be any better against a Manchester City outfit which is loaded with top-quality talent in all areas and it could prove to be an emphatic defeat of biblical proportions for the visitors this weekend.

West Ham will almost certainly park the bus and it will be a case of perseverance for the home side, although they will certainly find gaps to exploit and we’ll be looking once again to Raheem Sterling to take advantage of any holes in the Hammers’ armour. Sterling followed up his late winner against Huddersfield by scoring in the sixth minute of stoppage time against Southampton to earn his side another three points and with the bookmakers going 10/11 that he scores in a City win this weekend, it’s clear where our money is going on this match.
