Football Tips: Our trader’s delightful duo of best bets for West Ham v Man City

West Ham have a woeful record against Manchester City over the last few years.


Paddy’s football trader Jason Murphy is on hand to preview one of the most interesting games of the weekend as Manchester City travel to West Ham for the 12:30 kick off on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola has a good record against The Hammers and he’ll be looking to extend that against a team buoyed by their stunning comeback from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Tottenham last week.

Saturday 12:30: West Ham v Man City
BT Sport 1

West Ham haven’t got a result against Man City since Manuel Pellegrini was in charge. It was a 1-1 draw. Man City, under Pep Guardiola, just win at West Ham and they tend to win very well, scoring plenty of goals in the process. So, I’d be looking at the Man City win.

You can boost the price maybe looking at the Over 2.5 Goals market. We’ve seen the increased rate of goals scored this season. I don’t think it will stay at the rate it is, it’s about 0.8 of a goal higher than usual, but City and goals is what I’d be looking at here.

Man City to Win

West Ham actually got a couple of good results with Moyes not there and that miracle last week against Spurs was incredible. West Ham’s performances have been better, don’t get me wrong, but Man City to Win, I’d stick with that.

Kevin De Bruyne to Score First

Just to give you a goal scorer, Pep has said Kevin de Bruyne is out, apparently now he’s changed his mind and he’s available. I’d wait for team news. If he does play I’d go with Kevin de Bruyne to score first just because he’s on penalties. I’d avoid anytime as we might not get the full 90 if he’s not 100% fit.
