Both teams are motivated. This promising encounter will be entertaining to watch! Full statistics and all odds for the match can be found at 1xbet download.
West Ham United
West Ham still retain their chances of qualifying for the Europa League. At the moment, the Hammers are in 7th place (which, by the way, gives them a chance to play in the Conference League). They have 55 points on offer. If they can win now, David Moyes’ side will equal the points with 6th-placed Manchester United.
In the last 2 games, the Londoners have never won at home. But in a total of 18 home games, they have picked up 31 points. It is noteworthy that in 14 meetings the bet on “both goals scored” was placed.
Directly in the last round (away), the “iron” scored 3 points. They were stronger than Norwich with a score of 0-4. Saeed Benrahma scored a double in that game. Jarrod Bowen netted the winning goal.
Manchester City keep winning. On 11 May, Guardiola’s charges were stronger than Wolverhampton (1-4). De Bruyne netted four goals in that game. The Belgian now has 15 assists in the APL. He is his team’s top scorer in the English league.
The Sky Blue remain in the lead in the standings. They have 89 points on their side. The gap from joint 2nd position is 3 points. In the remaining 2 games, it is enough for City to earn 4 points to clinch the league title.
A few words about MC’s current conditioning. In the previous 5 matches, the team only won (with a total score of 22-2). In general, the series without defeat in the APL has 10 games (8 wins and 2 draws).
In 18 games on foreign soil (in the AFL), Man City have earned 45 points.
Statistics of personal meetings

Seven of the teams’ previous 8 games in London in the AFL ended with a head-to-head total of more than 2.5.
West Ham United vs Manchester City. Outcome with cf. 1,87
The hosts need a win not even so much to compete for participation in the Europa League, but to stay in 7th place and play in the Conference League. In the last 2 games, the Hammers have not won at home. Of course, in the match against City, they will want to break this streak.
The visitors can afford a draw, but they won’t. City are eliminated from all other tournaments, and will surely do their best now to make sure that the victory in the APL will be as bright as possible.
My prediction is a total of over 3.
