West Ham will play against Manchester City this Friday, 6th January in English FA Cup, at 19:55, UK time. Having in view the current form of the teams and their evolution so far, the visitors are in pole-position at the bookmakers and on the papers too.

The first week of this year brought us a small profit. The first easy money combo has been green and yesterday we had six winning predictions out of seven at Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona.

West Ham

  • The hosts are in a decent form, concidering that they ticked three wins and two losses in the last five matches in Premier League.
  • Their last two games have been lost: 0-1 vs Leicester away and 0-2 vs Manchester United at home.
  • Their current form in front of their own fans is not impressive in my opinion, but the Hummers should not be neglected here.
  • In Premier League, the Londoners are on the 13th position after 20 games played.
  • The Cup remains an important target for a team like West Ham and they are likely to field the first eleven today.
  • Their last victory was away against Swansea on December 26th (4-1).

Manchester City

  • The visitors are coming into this game after four wins and one losses out of the last five games in Premier League.
  • In three of these five matches, there have been scored over 2.5 goals per game.
  • When it comes about the last five away matches, things are not so impressive, since The Citizens ticked only two wins, one draw and two losses.
  • They are currently on the 4th position in the domestic league, with 42 points and a 41-22 goal difference.
  • After 20 games played in Premier League, City checked 13 win, three draws and four losses.
  • Talking about the last five meetings between both protagonists, City have win two of them, made a draw and have been defeated in two.
  • FA Cup is also a target for Guardiola, but I don't think it is a priority, to be honest.
