West Ham v Man City

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Man City have scored at least twice in 13 of their last 15 ­Premier League away matches
Expert verdict
West Ham have left their often vocal doubters eating their words in the first couple of months of the season, but a home game against Manchester City is their toughest task of the term. Sergio Aguero is in great form, scoring four goals and having eight shots on target against Tottenham and he can notch first at Upton Park.
