West Ham vs Manchester City Prediction and Match Preview
Saturday, August 10 – 07:30 EST – Olympic Stadium
West Ham kick off their 2019-20 campaign with one goal in mind, to achieve a better position than last season. We believe that the task will be more complicated after losing their star striker Marko Arnautovic. The Austrian international was transferred to Shangai SIPG for a £23 million fee. On another note, the Hammers managed to finish off last season with three consecutive wins to place themselves in the top half of the table. They will look to build on that momentum on Saturday, but it won’t be an easy task against Manchester City.
Speaking of which, Manchester City started the new season in the best of ways. Fresh off their Community Shield victory over Liverpool, their main intention will be to capture a third straight Premier League title at the end of the season. The team reinforced itself with the additions of Rodri and Joao Cancelo. Furthermore, they have shown their dominance when facing West Ham in the recent meetings. Manchester City has won 7 consecutive matches against the Hammers. In 4 of these matches, they managed to score at least 4 goals. Additionally, they have managed to win 8 consecutive season openers. We’re expecting more of the same on Saturday, as we believe that the reigning champions will start off their season with a dominant performance.
