Manchester City vs West Ham Match Analysis & Prediction
02/05/2023 10:00 pm
The defending Premier League champions Manchester City will host West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night to capitalize on one of their limited opportunities.
As of this writing, the Citizens are in first place, while the Hammers are in 15th place and still in risk of being relegated.
Erling Braut Haaland scored his 50th goal of the season to help Man City defeat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage on Sunday, breaking a record that had stood for 92 years. He also became the first player in the English top flight to reach 50 goals in all competitions.
With 34 Premier League goals under his belt, City’s Norwegian No. 9 is one goal away from breaking Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s joint record for most goals scored in a single season in the division (34).
Less than a week after earning a 4-0 victory away at Bournemouth to boost their morale, West Ham is back in the dumps after consecutive losses to Liverpool and Crystal Palace.
Following a 4-3 loss away to Crystal Palace last Saturday, which featured futile goals from Tomas Soucek, Michail Antonio, and Nayef Aguerd, came a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool last Wednesday in which manager David Moyes felt frustrated and “disrespected” by VAR.

Manchester City Team News
Nathan Ake, who is still recovering from a hamstring issue, and Kevin De Bruyne, who missed Man City’s victory over Fulham due to an unidentified ailment, are both questionable due to injuries.
In the last two games without Ake, Manuel Akanji has excellently stepped in as a temporary left-back; he may continue in that position alongside teammates Kyle Walker, John Stones, and Ruben Dias.

West Ham Team News
For West Ham, Kurt Zouma is expected to miss Wednesday’s game after hurting his ankle while attempting to block a shot during the first half of the team’s loss at Palace.
Due to knee surgery, Gianluca Scamacca is the only other absentee for the Hammers, so Michail Antonio and Danny Ings will continue to compete for a position as the team’s center forward.
