Manchester City has won only twice in the previous five official meetings. Pep Guardiola defeated Sheffield United in the English Premier League (1-0) and beat Fulham in the English Cup (4-0).
However, in the return semifinal meeting of the League Cup with Man United lost (0:1), although they went further, in the championship could not beat Crystal Palace at home (2:2), and in the last round lost away to Tottenham (0:2). Manchester City were in second place, but the gap with the leading Liverpool increased to 25 points.
At home, City won eight out of 12 fights in this championship. The citizens lost points not only with the representatives of the top six, but also with the midfielders of the championship. In the previous five home games of the Premier League Manchester City defeated Leicester City (3:1), Sheffield (2:0) and Everton (2:1), played a draw with Crystal Palace (2:2) and lost to Manchester United (1:2).
Possible starting lineup: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Cancelo; Rodri, D. Silva, De Bruyne; B. Silva, Jesus, Aguero
West Ham United
With the dismissal of Manuel Pellegrini and the appointment of David Moyes, West Ham’s management took a very, very rash decision. Of course, The Hammers with the Chilean showed unsatisfactory results, but to change Manuel for a coach who failed in all his previous jobs after leaving Everton? It looks weird.
So far, the results confirm that this decision is wrong. In the first meeting with Moyes, West Ham defeated Bournemouth (4-0), and then beat Jillingham (2-0) in the Cup. That was the end of the Scottish’s success. In the fourth round of the Cup West Ham flew out of West Bromwich (0:1), and in the championship lost to Leicester City (1:4), Liverpool (0:2), Sheffield (0:1), playing a draw with Everton (1:1) and Brighton (3:3).
The Hammers are now in 18th place.
Possible starting lineup: Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Bowen, Soucek, Noble, Snodgrass; Antonio

Manchester City vs West Ham Prediction
Manchester City this season is, of course, far from the optimum condition. But outsiders don’t lose to the citizens. The only exception is the meeting with Norwich in the fifth round (2-3), but this fiasco happened on the road. Manchester City on its field should easily destroy West Ham.
We predict a Manchester City win.
