Manchester City begin their defence of the Premier League title on Sunday with a trip to West Ham. Erling Haaland could make his top-flight debut with Pep Guardiola's team and will be eager to make a big impact in his first outing.

West Ham, meanwhile, had a strong season in 2021-22 and will be hopeful of springing a surprise to get the new campaign underway.

West Ham vs Manchester City first goal scorer odds

New signing Erling Haaland is the favourite to get the game's first goal at odds of 5/2 (3.5), while fellow summer signing Julian Alvarez is 9/2 (5.5).

The latest addition to West Ham's attack, Gianluca Scamacca, is priced at 12/1 (13.0) to break the deadlock, as is Michail Antonio.

West Ham vs Manchester City preview

West Ham are looking to improve on an impressive last season and will hope that the arrival of Gianluca Scamacca will give them a huge boost in attack after seeing him score 16 times in Serie A last term.

However, they do not have a good record against Pep Guardiola's team on home soil, having failed to beat them the last six times the northerners have visited the capital city.

Even more is expected of City this season than last year after the summer arrival of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, Kalvin Phillips from Leeds and Julian Alvarez.

The pressure is on City to pull off another title-winning campaign and they will see a strong start against David Moyes' side as a necessity.

West Ham vs Manchester City tips and predictions

Both teams have scored in each of the last five matches between these sides, a bet that is priced at 4/5 (1.8) to come through this weekend.
