Man City vs West Ham United – Match Preview

Man City vs West Ham United - Match Preview

Man City vs West Ham United – Match Preview – League leaders Manchester City host West Ham on Sunday in Premier League action.

The hosts are absolutely flying, with 19 consecutive wins in all competitions. Their midweek victory over Southampton was uncomfortable viewing for City fans however, with the winner coming from Raheem Sterling in the 96th minute.

The visitors have been in dire form heading into this weekend, with their most recent spanking coming at the hands of fellow strugglers, Everton. Wayne Rooney stole the headlines with an incredible hattrick, however the underlying problems at West Ham are proving almost self-destructive.

City are currently top of the league, eight points ahead of second place Manchester United. They have found the back of the net a staggering 44 times in 14 games and have only conceded nine goals in the process. Sergio Aguero has scored nine goals with three assists, Raheem Sterling has the same with one less assist and Gabriel Jesus has eight goals with one assist. If that isn’t one of the best attacking forces in Europe, nothing will be. Winger Leroy Sane also has six goals with six assists. Should be routine for Pep Guardiola’s side.

David Moyes hasn’t been able to have the desired impact since taking the reign at the London Stadium. One point from his three first matches against Watford, Leicester and Everton hasn’t filled the Hammers fans with much pride. Summer signing Javier Hernandez has struggled to fit in so far in Claret and white, however has still scored four league goals, such to his goal scoring nature. This is West Hams toughest test so far, and they haven’t dealt well with the easier ones this season. Andy Carroll is yet to make an impact under David Moyes but the forward can cause the City back line problems if he is to start.
