West Ham v Man City Match Prediction – Form (All Matches)
West Ham have picked up mostly draws heading into the new campaign. Meanwhile, Man City were undefeated until a disappointing loss in the FA Community Shield. Let’s now take an in-depth look into both teams.
West Ham v Man City Match Prediction – Preview
West Ham United F.C.
West Ham United finished 2021/22 in 7th at the Premier League table, which qualified them for a playoff in the UEFA Conference League. It was a bit of a disappointment, as they fell short of the UEFA Europa League title after being knocked out by Eintracht Frankfurt 1-3 in the semi-final. With stalwarts such as Declan Rice and Michail Antonio returning, David Moyes’ side has made most of the transfer window, signing the likes of Gianluca Scamacca, Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes and Alphonse Areola (from loan). The pre-season however has been a mixed bag for the Hammers as they are without wins, drawing thrice and losing 1-3 to Rangers at Ibrox. It will be intriguing to see how far this side will go, with no less than the defending champions out to test them.
Manchester City F.C.
Manchester City are determined to pick up a third consecutive Cup and challenge for a Quadruple after narrowly edging out Liverpool last season on the final day of competition. Pep Guardiola’s side has had a massive lineup change with the arrival of star striker Erling Haaland and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips, whilst losing names such as Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Meanwhile, stars such as Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden remain crucial to the Cityzens lineup. However, their campaign started off quite patchy as they lost 1-3 to Liverpool in the Community Shield, with Julian Alvarez the only one netting for the Mancunians. However, they should be the superior ones in the match against the Hammers.

West Ham v Man City Community Shield Prediction – Final Thoughts
Despite falling short in another face-off with Liverpool, Man City are still the overwhelming favourites to carve out a win on matchday One. We expect West Ham’s Rice, Antonio and Jarred Bowen to ramp up the attack against the visitors; but De Bruyne’s skillful playmaking, as well as the presence of goal machine Haaland will be too much to overcome. With that, let’s take a look at the prediction.
