West Ham United and Manchester City are set to face other at the London Stadium, as the hosts hope to dodge a fifth successive disaster against the Citizens on home ground.
Sitting 13th in the table, the Hammers have a record of three wins, three draws, and six defeats, having secured just one triumph in the previous three league clashes. Having kept one clean sheet in the opening 12 Premier League fixtures, the Irons see only Fulham behind them. On the other hand, Manuel Pellegrini’s players have failed to find the back of the net five times so far, which puts them on a pair with Newcastle. With 14 goals bagged up to this point, the London outfit has netted an average 1.17 goals per match while conceding 18 times at an average of 1.5 goals per game. Moreover, the Hammers have struggled to keep a clean sheet in four consecutive encounters in front of the home crowd, having scored at least once three times during that period.
The reigning EPL champions will look to post their fifth consecutive victory in the Premier League against the unpredictable West Ham side that has failed to clinch a win four times in the past five league encounters. The Citizens have lost just once in their last 19 competitive games, during which they’ve kept 12 clean sheets. They’ve managed an average of 3 goals per match in the English top flight so far while conceding just five goals at a miserly average of 0.42 goals allowed every game. It gets better in the last three meetings before the international break, against Southampton, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Manchester United, as Pep Guardiola’s players scored 15 times, having conceded just two goals in the process.
