Manchester City are preparing to host West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday. Currently, City are leading the league with 59 points, meanwhile, the Hammers are 4th with 45 points.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“West Ham are flying along in fourth place and got a great win over Tottenham last weekend – they are doing so well anyway but to beat their rivals like that must have been pretty sweet.

“I really like the way David Moyes has made them so solid at the back, with a well-drilled back-four and Declan Rice sitting in front of them, but this is a big test for that defence – they are going to Etihad Stadium, and obviously Manchester City are sweeping all before them and on a run on 19 straight wins.

“The Hammers took a point from them at London Stadium back in October, but City look a completely different beast now.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
