West Ham vs Manchester City: Match Preview & Predictions

West Ham vs Manchester City

West Ham vs Manchester City:- Last season’s title holders will begin their campaign against West Ham United. The Hammers finished tenth last season but they have built a strong team with a good combination of players and a premier league winning manager this season. Manchester City, on the other hand, again looks like a team to beat this season. City recently won the community shield game against Liverpool last week which will be a big boost of confidence for the players and Pep Guardiola before the season begins. 

West Ham vs Manchester City

West Ham’s arguably most consistent performer was goal keeper Lukas Fabianski, who looked in great touch despite defensive errors which was the major cause of the Hammers underwhelming show last season. Citizens had another complete season where everyone chipped in to keep the team at the top, however, from this season the team will be without Vincent Kompany which will be big shoes to fill at a very important position.
