Venue: London National Stadium

It's going to be more than a Super Sunday as Premier League titleholders Manchester City visit the London Stadium to play West Ham in the season opener. The Citizens were stunned in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last week, as the Reds lifted the Community Shield to begin their season on a very positive note. Now, Pep Guardiola's multiple champions will be expected to relinquish their wrath on David Moyes' Hammers. On the other hand, West Ham had a pre-season to forget, totally. The home side for Sunday managed to win only 2 of their 7 friendlies and were winless in the last 4 games too. Will we see a proper City thrashing on Sunday afternoon?

West Ham vs Manchester City Betting Tips

The Hammers have consistently and shockingly scored in 4 of their last 5 meetings against City. This record is held by very few Premier League sides and is quite an impressive one. Moreover, coming to some recent results, City have not kept a clean sheet now in 4 of their last 5 games too. This fixture seems made for a blockbuster with goals at both ends. We are going for a 3-1 City win in this game considering that 9 of their last 10 games have ended in big margins too. Our best suggestion would be to bet on Away / Over 2.5 with BTTS as another good additional option.

  • Best Tip: Away / Over 2.5
  • Prediction: 3-1 City

West Ham Team News

West Ham have heavily invested in their attacking options this summer. Italian young sensation Gianluca Scamacca and Nayef Aguerd have reinforced the Hammers' attacking depth massively. But, we still believe that David Moyes will stick to the club's first team striker, Michail Antonio, in this game - just ahead of Said Benhrama, who has taken the league by storm after joining in from Brentford last year. Central defender, Kurt Zouma, will be under heavy attention as he would be deployed in marking the Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland on the night.

Manchester City Team News

All eyes will be on Erling Braut Haaland as the Premier League star Alf-Inge Haaland's prodigal son returns to his birthland with huge expectations. His first appearance against Liverpool did not go as planned, and it makes his first Premier League game very important for both himself and the team overall. Aymeric Laporte is still sidelined with a lack of fitness and so Nathan Ake will be joining Ruben Dias in the back-four. Another two huge debutants who could feature in the second half are midfielder Kalvin Phillips and Argentine striker Julian Alvarez, with the latter even scoring for City against Liverpool last Saturday.
