Manchester City vs West Ham United Preview

Manchester City vs West Ham United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 3rd December 2017

Kick-off time – 16:00 GMT

Manchester City’s title challenge has suffered  some major assaults over the past few weeks but thankfully they have been able to overcome.

Guardiola’s men will feel a first defeat is closer than ever.

They came from behind to win at Huddersfield last weekend and required a last gap Raheem Sterling goal to win against Southampton in midweek.

They have now won 12 league games on the bounce and a win for them here means they would equal the all time record for consecutive Premier League wins.

They travel to Old Trafford after this game for a blockbuster encounter with Manchester United; they will want to get maximum points here before the Manchester Derby.

West Ham will be wishing this fixture did not come now as they are yet to get a good start to this season despite being handled by two managers already.

They lost their last game 4-0 to Everton – a result that leaves them in 18th position heading into this match.

The Hammers have not won any of their last five matches and the 30 goals they have conceded this season is the highest by any team in the Premier League.

With such a record, coming up against the best attacking side in the league should be a marriage made in heaven.

The Hammers have lost each of their last three matches against City, conceding at least three goals in each.
