Besides the Champions League matches on Wednesday we also have a Premier League match, between Manchester City and West Ham. This match finds the hosts with not a lot to fight for, while West Ham are trying to avoid the relegation. Let’s take a look at what this match is all about.
Date/Time: 2-19-2020, 14:30 EST
Spread: West Ham +2.5
Total: 4 Goals
Manchester City (16-6-3) are coming off a really frustrating 0-2 loss on the road against Tottenham. They had a chance to take the lead but missed from the penalty spot. After that they saw a red card and conceded two second-half goals to eventually lose by 0-2. Prior to that they suffered a harm-less 1-0 home loss against Manchester United but still moved to the final of the Carabao Cup. Manchester City are still stuck at the 2nd spot of the league table with 51 points, now just one ahead of Leicester. They have been quite strong at home so far (8-2-2), where they have won five of their last seven matches in all competitions (5-1-1).
On the other hand, West Ham (6-13-6) played a mouth-watering 3-3 draw at home against Brighton. They actually took a two-goal lead in that match but conceded twice in a four-minute span to eventually split the points. They have been in terrible shape lately, going win-less in their last six matches in all competitions (0-4-2). West Ham have been really struggling lately and as a result they are now sitting at the 18th spot of the league table with 24 points. They are only one point below the relegation zone and need all the points they can get. And they have not been very strong on the road (3-6-3).
Manchester City destroyed West Ham in the premiere by a massive 5-0 in London. They have now won each of their last six against West Ham. Moreover, they have been excellent as hosts against West Ham over the years, winning ten of the last 11 matches in this venue. West Ham are in dire need of some points here, but it’s a really tough match-up. I will take my chances with backing the visitors to cover the spread here.
