The match

It's not the ideal home game with which to start a new Premier League season. West Ham United begin the new term with a home game against defending champions Manchester City. The Hammers have a terrible league record against City and last beat them in 2015. Last season did see them knock City out of the EFL Cup on penalties and get a 2-2 home league draw after leading 2-0. West Ham finished seventh last season and will be playing in the Europa Conference League this season. Only three of their last ten games were won as they missed out on a Europa League spot by two points. Pre-season hasn't gone too well with no wins in their last four friendlies. They will be hoping for goals from new signing Gianluca Scamacca and another top seven finish looks possible.

Manchester City are chasing a third successive Premier League title. They have signed Haaland and Phillips and although Jesus and Zinchenko have gone to Arsenal and Sterling to Chelsea, they are still the team to beat in the Premier League. Last term saw them win 14 of their 19 away league games with only a loss at Tottenham on the very first weekend of the 2021/22 season. Back City to start the season with an away win, have a side bet on them doing so with both teams scoring.

Key Statistics

  • City have won 14 of their last 18 away Premier League games.
  • West Ham ended last season with only three wins in the last ten league fixtures.
  • West Ham haven't recorded a league win over City since 2015.

The bet of our experts

Manchester City scored 39 more league goals than West Ham last season and now they have Erling Haaland up front. They are again the team to beat in the Premier League and have won 14 of their last 18 away games in this division. 41 away league goals were scored last season with only 11 conceded (four of which came in the first and last league games of the season). West Ham had a good 2021/22 season but will be disappointed at not reaching the Europa League final and then only qualifying for the Europa Conference League this season. They have made some good signings and it will be interesting to see how Scamaca gets on in the Premier League. City have a great record against the Hammers and can start the new league season with an away win.
