MCI vs WHU Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
West Ham United will be playing host to the reigning English Champions Manchester City in a Premier League match at London Stadium, tomorrow on Saturday evening (IST).
West Ham United:
West Ham United were hailed as a sleeping giant of world football by many football pundits after they acquired the London Stadium last year. And there shouldn’t be any doubts in that regard as the club boasts a huge fan base, at least in London. The owners also seemed to have set some top targets as they spent quite big on new arrivals in the summer.
However, it has been quite a subdued outings by the Hammers as they lost their opening four games. But barring that pathetic run, manager Manuel Pellegrini has enough reasons to be optimistic going into an imperious winter run.
The former Upton Park are on a three game unbeaten streak heading into this match and have already drawn and won home games against Chelsea and Manchester United respectively. Pelligrini also masterminded a magnificent 3-1 away win against Everton which also ended his side’s four-game losing streak in the Premier League.
But do they have enough in their tank to beat the mighty Manchester City in this match and become the first side this season to beat Pep Guardiola in the Premier League? Only time will tell.
Last season Manchester City became the first English side to break the 100 point mark in the Premier League. There were many pundits and even Pep Guardiola himself was quite vocal about the fact that it would be almost impossible for his team to emulate those numbers this season.
But if you look at games such as away match against Liverpool at Anfield and the home game against city rival Manchester United, the Blues lost both those games in the 2017-18 campaign. While they have earned four points in those games already this season. Though it may not be a parameter to judge things it does tell that City have matured and know how to changes gears depending upon the quality of opponents.

MCI vs WHU Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
West Ham United– Fabianski (GK), Zabaleta, Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell, Noble, Rice, Obiang, Antonio, Arnautovic, Anderson
Manchester City– Ederson (GK), Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Fernandinho, D.Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane
MCI vs WHU Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
When Manchester City are playing you must have more City player in your ranks and that’s what we have done with our both teams-
Ederson will be the goalie in Team 1 and Team 2 as City have the best defensive records and the Brazilian is also good with his passing and feet.
Walker and Zabaleta and wing-backs and love to make darting runs on the flanks, meaning more points from them. Balbuena and Laporte make the other two defenders in our second team.
We have gone for 5 men in the middle in both the teams with David Silva and Leroy Sane Ryad Mahrez from Manchester and Anderson, Noble and Obiang from West Ham.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
West Ham have a pathetic record against Manchester City since 2009. The Hammers have lost 14 games in that period, winning only twice, and also conceding 18 goals.
However, there’s no doubt that Manuel Pellegrini’s side has improved since the first international break of this season but we think that City presents a challenge too big to overcome for them at this moment.
An away win is our call.
