Today's Best Bets for West Ham vs Man City

The reigning Premier League champions begin the defence of their title away a West Ham. This fixture ended in a 2-2 draw last season but Man City will be desperate to go one better this Sunday and win the game after they slipped to a 3-1 defeat in the Community Shield last weekend.

Man City & Both Teams to Score

Manchester City have picked up three wins from their last six games against West Ham, only losing once against the Londoners during that period. Both teams have scored in each of the last four league meetings between the two clubs and we're expecting more of the same this weekend. West Ham have seen five of their last six matches produce goals at both ends of the pitch, while the same can be said for five of Man City's last six outings as well.

Erling Haaland to Score

Man City's big summer signing was Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and many back the young Norwegian international to finish as the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season. City have been missing a traditional No.9 for a while now but in Haaland, they have a player who scored 62 goals in 67 league games for his last club and has an international record of 20 goals in 21 games for Norway.

West Ham Predicted Lineup – Fabianski, Coufal, Johnson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Fornals, Benrahma & Antonio

We've mentioned Haaland and the relatively small fee of £54m for a player of his quality, looks like smart business by City.

Stefan Ortega has been signed on a free transfer from Bielefeld to provide backup in the goalkeeping department.
