West Ham United vs. Manchester City: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester City travel to the capital on Saturday as they look to build on a good week away to West Ham United.

West Ham United produced a remarkable recovery to earn the unlikeliest of points away at Tottenham last weekend.

Trailing 3-0 with 10 minutes remaining, the Hammers scored three times, including an incredible last minute leveller from Manuel Lanzini.

Manchester City earned a second win of the season with a narrow 1-0 home victory over Arsenal thanks to a Raheem Sterling winner.

They opened their Champions League account with a 3-1 home victory over FC Porto on Wednesday, with Ferran Torres opening his Manchester City account.
