West Ham is currently 8th with 14 points from 9 matches. The fans are satisfied with the results.
Four players are sidelined for this match as Ricardo Vaz Te, Jack Collison, Alou Diarra and Matthew Taylor are all injured. Manchester City are also having some missing players. Micah Richards, Maicon, Aleksandar Kolarov, Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell are injured, while James Milner will serve his one-match suspension.
I expect at least three goals at Boleyn Ground in London. The last four matches of West Ham ended with Over 2.5 goals all.
Manchester City have four top strikers in Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli. It is natural to expect goals from such strong attack.
It is also important that three of the last four mutual games have finished with Over 2.5 goals. I expect another high scoring match.
