Man City v West Ham betting tips: Confident City face Cup conquerors

| 27.11.2021

Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League game

Manchester City proved too good for PSG once again in midweek but face another tough test on Sunday as we pick out some Man City v West Ham betting tips.

The 2-1 victory on Wednesday night secured City’s place in the last 16 of the Champions League as group winners and their focus now returns to the pursuit of Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Sunday’s match, which is not being televised, kicks off at 2pm at the Etihad Stadium.

Man City v West Ham match odds

City will be full of confidence following Wednesday night’s result and have an extra 24 hours to recover from their European exertions than West Ham.

Pep Guardiola’s men produced a superb response after falling behind to a goal from Kylian Mbappe against the run of play early in the second half.

Raheem Sterling levelled just after the hour and substitute Gabriel Jesus popped up to claim a deserved winner for a team missing three of their most inventive players in Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden.

That was a fourth straight win in all competitions and City are 3/10 to extend that streak but their defeat at home to Crystal Palace last month will give hope to 10/1 underdogs West Ham.

The Hammers’ four-match winning run ended last weekend when they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Wolves but they remain in the top four.

That was their first away defeat of the season and David Moyes’ men are 27/10 to avoid defeat on Sunday.

Man City v West Ham head-to-head

This is the second meeting of the season between these two teams and West Ham have the bragging rights so far.

Their Carabao Cup tie at the London Stadium last month ended in a 0-0 draw before West Ham won the penalty shoot-out to end City’s dominance of that competition.

Another draw this weekend is available for Man City v West Ham betting tips at 9/2 while under 2.5 goals, which has paid out in four of the last six meetings, is 29/20.

Man City v West Ham key battles

Foden pulled out of the City squad on the eve of the PSG game with a minor injury problem.

That forced a change of plan with Oleksandr Zinchenko, who has chiefly played as a left-back under Guardiola, drafted into an attacking midfield role.

Tomas Soucek, Man City v West Ham betting tips

His absence would be a boost for West Ham’s midfield duo of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, who have been in fine form during their team’s impressive campaign so far.

City still have plenty of attacking talent though and Sterling has now scored in his last three appearances for his club.

He can be backed at 6/4 to extend that run in Man City v West Ham betting tips and Sterling is 9/2 to score first.

Breaking down City’s defence will not be easy for West Ham. Guardiola’s team have kept clean sheets in seven of their eight league wins and are 5/4 to win to nil once more.
