Premier League leaders, Manchester City continue their charge towards a fourth-consecutive league title in east London on Saturday as Pep Guardiola's side take on West Ham United at the London Stadium. Manchester City have a 100% record after four matches but an away fixture against West Ham United is arguably their toughest assignment so far. Ahead of Saturday's 3pm kick-off, you will find the very latest team news and expert betting tips right here at freebets.ltd.uk whilst we'll also offer generous odds and free bets from popular bookmakers, BoyleSports.
Two In-form Sides
Manchester City have races straight to the top of the Premier League table with four straight wins. Last season's treble winners have taken all three points in matches against Burnley (3-0), Newcastle United (1-0), Sheffield United (2-1) and Fulham (5-1).
West Ham United have also made a superb start to the new season. David Moyes was amongst the bookies' favourites to be the first Premier League manager out of the door this season but he has guided the Hammers to ten points from a possible twelve.
West Ham United kicked off the season with a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth but have since won three successive matches against Chelsea (3-1), Brighton & Hove Albion (3-1) and Luton Town (1-1).
West Ham United v Manchester City: Head-to-head
Manchester City are unbeaten against West Ham United in the Premier League since September 2015. Manchester City have won thirteen and drawn three of their sixteen subsequent league matches against Saturday's opponents.
An Erling Haaland double settled this fixture last season as Manchester City ran out 2-0 winners. Haaland also scored in a 3-0 win at the Etihad Stadium in the most recent fixture between the sides.
Erling Haaland scored three times in two league games against West Ham United last season and he's already netted six times in four matches this season. A goal for the Norwegian international looks inevitable at odds of 4/6. There may be more value in backing Haaland to score two or more for the second successive league game at 3/1.
There hasn't been a clean sheet in any of West Ham United's last seven matches; a run stretching back to the Europa Conference League semi-final on May 18th. Additionally, Manchester City have failed to keep a clean sheet in back-to-back league games. Both teams to score is our bet of the day at 8/11.
Incredibly, the last three league goals conceded by Manchester City have all been converted by defenders. Tim Ream scored for Fulham last time out whilst Jayden Bogle and Ethan Pinnock scored for Sheffield United and Brentford respectively. Central defenders, Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd have both netted in the league already this season and can be backed to score at any time at 12/1 or 14/1 respectively.
