The West Ham United team will challenge the Manchester City team in a Matchday 5 Premier League in London Stadium Stadium, London on Saturday, September 16, 2023. For streaming coverage of West Ham United vs Man City, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
West Ham will host Man City at the London Stadium on Saturday, 16 September 2023 morning in the continuation of Week 5 of the 2023/24 Premier League. This is the most interesting match this week because both teams are unbeaten since the start of the season.
West Ham are making their supporters very proud with an impressive performance. They have not lost in the last 4 matches and have won full 9 points in the last 3 matches. They are currently in 5th place in the standings with 10 points, only 2 points behind Man City.
West Ham have also proven their strength when meeting big teams. They managed to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in week 2 and beat Chelsea 2-1 in week 4. They have also advanced to the quarter-finals of the English League Cup after beating Arsenal with a score of 3-2.
However, West Ham also have to face several problems regarding player fitness. Defender Konstantinos Mavropanos and midfielder Soucek are unlikely to recover from injury to feature in this match. They will also lose striker Michail Antonio who must serve a suspension.
On the other hand, Man City is the defending Premier League champion and also the team that is currently leading the standings with 12 points after winning 4 times in a row. They have scored 14 goals and conceded only 2 goals in this period.
Man City also doesn’t experience many difficulties when facing big teams. They have destroyed Tottenham 3-0 in week 1 and Arsenal 4-0 in week 3. They have also qualified for the quarter-finals of the English League Cup after beating Leicester City 2-1.
However, Man City also does not have the best squad for this match. They will be without many key players such as Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Jack Grealish and the injured Mateo Kovacic. They will also feel the pressure of playing at their opponent’s home ground.
Facing Man City, West Ham need to be careful because history is not in their favor. In 111 previous meetings, West Ham only achieved 34 wins, while suffering 59 defeats. Last season, they were also unable to score any goals and lost to Man City in both legs with an aggregate of 0-5.
Moreover, ‘The Citizens’ have striker Erling Haaland from Man City who is the leader of the Premier League top scorer list with 6 goals in 4 matches, and of course Julian Alvares who continues to surprise. However, West Ham also has dangerous strikers such as Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals.
