West Ham sit seventh in the table and know a victory here would move them ahead of Man United in sixth place and into a European qualification spot. Man City are three points ahead of Liverpool and with their title rivals not playing until Tuesday can go six clear.
The Hammers have had a week to rest as their last game was last weekend when they eased to a 4-0 defeat of Norwich. Man City were in action in midweek when they comfortably beat Wolves 5-1 thanks to an inspired Kevin De Bruyne who grabbed four.
At home, the London side are winless in two but have lost just one of their last seven which came against Arsenal. On the road, the Manchester outfit have won their last five league matches scoring a combined 22 goals and conceding just two.
Five of the last eight West Ham games have seen both teams score and it is all four when looking at just home fixtures. The last six Man City Premier League fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.
Jarrod Bowen is the main man for West Ham with ten goals and ten assists for the league campaign. Kevin De Bruyne is obviously the lead for Man City and has 15 goals and seven assists this season.
West Ham United vs Manchester City: Match Stats
Although Man City dominated and deserved to beat Wolves they did concede once and could have conceded more. West Ham have the height and physical presence to worry a City defence that has a wealth of absentees. City might score but taking West Ham to get over 1.5 goals could be the play.
It has been an excellent campaign for Jarrod Bowen and he is a player who is not afraid to shoot. He is 10/11 with Skybet for 1+ shot to go on target and this looks worth taking especially if Michail Antonio is unavailable.
