Manchester City v West Ham: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Manchester City are expected to wrap up their fourth successive Premier League title when they host West Ham on the final day of the season.

The Citizens are unbeaten in almost a decade against the Irons and know that a win would seal the Premier League title, but David Moyes will be keen to sign off with a flourish in his final match in charge of the Hammers.

Manchester City v West Ham betting tips and predictions

Manchester City to win to nil - 1/1

City may be without first-choice goalkeeper Ederson after the Brazilian suffered a fractured eye socket in midweek, but deputy Stefan Ortega was hailed as "world-class" by Pep Guardiola after producing three excellent saves from the bench against Spurs.

Sitting two points above second-placed Arsenal heading into the final day of the season, the Citizens are just three points away from sealing an unprecedented fourth successive Premier League title and they are huge favourites to take the spoils at the Etihad.

They come into Sunday’s game having won their last eight league assignments and their 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in midweek earned them their fourth clean sheet in their last five matches.

West Ham are assured of a ninth-place finish this season and Sunday will mark the end of the Moyes era, but it has not been a particularly buoyant send-off for the former Manchester United and Everton boss.

They have won just one of their last seven in all competitions and have lost seven of their last nine away from home in all competitions, failing to score in five of those defeats.

City are unbeaten in normal time against West Ham since 2015, winning 14 of the 18 meetings since then and keeping a clean sheet in nine, so expect a routine win for the defending champions on Sunday. 

Josko Gvardiol to score anytime - 7/2

Just over half of Josko Gvardiol’s 38 appearances for Manchester City this season have been at left-back and the Croatian is expected to start there on Sunday, opening the door for another goal for the talented defender.

All five of Gvardiol’s goals this season have come from left-back and all of them have been scored in the past six weeks.

He netted a brace at Fulham last weekend to make it five goals and one assist in his last eight appearances, so he can be backed to make a difference on Sunday.

Lucas Paqueta to be booked - 9/4

Lucas Paqueta has committed more fouls (46) than any other Hammers player in the Premier League this season and that has translated into plenty of stern words from referees.

He has been booked 13 times in all competitions for the Irons this season; the most recent of which came in his last away day at Chelsea.

That was his fourth yellow card in his last seven appearances and the Brazilian was booked in the reverse fixture at the London Stadium back in September, so he could be a good choice to get himself into trouble on Sunday.
