This will be the second meeting between Man City and West Ham this season after David Moyes knocked Pep Guardiola’s side out of the League Cup last month, and both clubs enter this contest at the Etihad fresh from confirming top spot in their respective groups of European football earlier this week.

City thoroughly outplayed a star-studded PSG side on Wednesday evening, beating Lionel Messi, Neymar and Co 2-1 on home soil to secure first in Group A of the Champions League. The Hammers meanwhile ventured to Austria a day later and put Rapid Vienna to the sword, confirming first in Group H of the Europa League.

Attention, though now returns to domestic matters for two clubs chasing a top-four finish. City will have their sights on a title charge as they look to defend their crown, while West Ham will just want to remain in the top-four conversation a little longer to see if they can actually sustain their current form across the season.

As it stands, Moyes’ men are in fourth but only three points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal, while City are in second, three points each way off Chelsea in first and West Ham in the final Champions League qualification place. It would not be unfair to call this a potential six-pointer in that case.

Man City vs West Ham: Match Stats

West Ham have been devastating going forward this season and, up until last weekend’s round of fixtures, were actually ahead on goals scored in comparison City after 11 games. The Hammers, though, fired a blank in a 1-0 defeat to Wolves, while City put three past Everton. Despite that, West Ham are averaging 5.1 shots on target per game this season, their most in the Premier League since 2000/01 (5.3).

For City, there is only one man who tends to make the difference here. Raheem Sterling, scorer of City’s equaliser against PSG earlier this week, has been directly involved in 11 goals in his last eight Premier League games against West Ham (six goals, five assists). The England international scents blood every time the Hammers take to the turf, and he will be looking to inflict further damage here.

West Ham’s recent record against City is, well, not great. Quite depressingly, from a Hammers perspective, City have won nine of their 10 Premier League games against West Ham under Guardiola. In that time City have netted 28 goals and conceded just five, while the Hammers have only won once in their last 15 Premier League games against City at the Etihad, securing a 2-1 triumph in September 2015 under Slaven Bilic.
