Hammers Hope to Rebound Versus City

Dimitri Payet West Ham

West Ham had an eight-match unbeaten run end at Newcastle last weekend so the Hammers will look to bounce back with a positive showing against Manchester City at Upton Park in Premier League action Saturday. The Hammers are presently +385 in moneyline markets with City -150 and the Draw +295. Totals markets have OVER 2.5 goals -135 and UNDER 2.5 goals +110.

Shark Bites
  • West Ham is unbeaten in its last eight home matches in the Premier League (four wins, four draws).
  • Man City hasn’t won back-to-back league games since early October.
  • West Ham has won two of the previous three meetings with Manchester City.

While Leicester City’s rise to the top four has been the story of the 2015-16 Premier League season, West Ham deserves praise for their vast improvement and brand of football under new boss Slaven Bilic during the campaign.

Bolstered by several savvy acquisitions including the sensational Dimitri Payet, the Hammers reside in sixth place in the table on 35 points – just four back of Tottenham Hotspur for fourth in the table.

The Citizens are finding a bit of form again after enduring an inconsistent spell from the end of November through the end of December. City has three wins and a pair of draws in its last five matches and have tightened up defensively allowing just two goals in that stretch.

West Ham won’t be short of confidence ahead of this match as they took the reverse fixture by a score of 2-1 at the Etihad back in September. City will be gunning for three points to keep up at the top of the table, but West Ham won’t lack motivation as they keep gunning for the top four.
