West Ham United - Manchester City Betting Preview: Expect goals from the home side at Upton Park

The late kick off this Saturday in the top flight sees Manuel Pellegrini take his side to East London looking for his first win away from home in the league this season
West Ham United return to league action after their fantastic win away at London rivals Tottenham Hotspur earlier on this month.

The Hammers host Manchester City, who have looked out of sorts away from home in the Premier League this season so far. Despite their away form, City trail leaders Arsenal by only three points, whilst West Ham sit in 13th with eight points from seven games.

Sam Allardyce's side come into this match having bounced back well from their defeat away at Hull City with an astonishing win away at Spurs.

That is just the second victory recorded in the league this season by the Hammers, who have had a mixed bag of results, with their other win coming against Cardiff City on the opening day of the season. Paddy Power price them 4/1 (5.00) to take all three points in this match.

Manchester City recorded an excellent win last time out in the league, beating Everton after going a goal down early. This result followed two defeats, with Aston Villa surprising them in a 3-2 victory, and Bayern Munich comprehensively beating them in the Champions League.

City have been deadly at home in the league, but with only one point from three away matches, there is huge room for improvement on the road. Paddy Power price them as favourites at 7/10 (1.70) to win. The same firm price the draw at 11/4 (3.75).

With Pellegrini's men looking shaky on the road this campaign, a price that stands out in this fixture is over 1.5 West Ham goals at 11/4 (3.75) with Paddy Power.

This would have paid out in four of the Hammers last five home fixtures, as well as against Spurs away before the international break. With City conceding six goals in their three away league fixtures, it's certainly worth taking advantage of this price.

For those looking for a goalscorer option, backing West Ham and England Under-21s man of the moment Ravel Morrison to net anytime at 4/1 (5.00) with Paddy Power is tough to ignore.

The former Manchester United man has netted three goals in his last four fixtures for the Hammers, and with him striking twice for England's Under 21 side in midweek, this price is too good to miss against a shaky visiting defence.

Paddy Power will refund losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on this and every Premier League match this weekend if the game ends in a draw.
