West Ham travel to Man City knowing that their star player – Dimitri Payet – will be absent from their squad owing to the injury that also kept him away from the Bournemouth game, while Andy Carroll also looks set to miss out with a knee injury. That will likely keep the Newcastle-born striker out of action for anything up to six weeks. Read on for some quality betting tips on Man City vs West Ham and a special enhanced odds offer.
Football Tips for Manchester City vs West Ham
Tips Daddy has special 7/1 odds on a Man City win for this game!
West Ham had European action just a few days before this fixture, hosting Astra Giurgiu in the second leg of their Europa League Qualifying Play-off. Tired legs may be the theme of the game though, as Man City’s game against Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League Qualifying Play-off took place just 24 hours earlier than West Ham’s game. Squad rotation throughout these two games will likely prove to be the key behind the outcome of this one, though with Pep Guardiola’s winning start at City confidence is high, and they will be confident they can overcome their foes in this one.
Man City successfully built on their opening day win against Sunderland by thrashing Stoke 4-1 at the Bet365 Stadium, with braces from Sergio Aguero and Nolito making Bojan’s penalty little more than a rare bright spot on a miserable afternoon for the Potters.
West Ham saw off the challenge of Bournemouth thanks to a Michael Antonio strike five minutes from time in their first Premier League game at the London Stadium. That was a turnaround from their previous game to open the campaign, which saw them fall 2-1 at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with Diego Costa’s late strike proving decisive. Without Payet or Carroll, they may look towards Antonio or new signing Jonathan Callieri for inspiration.
Football Tips of the Match
Both teams have seen late goals in both of their games thus far, but the Hammers were only on the happy end of such a strike once. There should be goals in this one for sure, and don’t be too surprised to see both sides getting on the scoresheet. Bet on a Man City win overall:
We have a West Ham looked great playing away in the early stages of last season, and put up a real fight against Chelsea – they will be up for it, so this one could be tasty.
