Last season, at certain moments, the home team seemed like a team that could be more seriously involved in the fight for the fourth position in the table and placement in the Champions League, but during the season they really had a lot of ups and downs.
They finished the season in a modest seventh place, and they would have remained without that position if they had not had a solid performance at home. At home, they experienced only 5 failures in 19 games played, and the 33 goals scored speak enough that the support from the stands is really a big wind at their backs.
As most of the competitors in the fight for a place in the Champions League have stepped up this summer, it is somewhat realistic to expect that West Ham will once again fight for fifth or sixth place in the table.
Ten rounds before the end of last season, it seemed that the title would end again with too many difficulties in Manchester. But, a series of failures followed and Liverpool managed to completely come back to life.
However, the popular “Citizens” showed enough quality and concentration, so they ended the fight for the title in the desired way. However, the primary goal of last season was the title of European champion, but they were prevented from doing so by Real Madrid, who eliminated them in a completely unreal way.
The arrival of Erling Haaland to City is a clear sign that this season’s ambitions are at their highest, and as they will again be chasing the long-desired Champions League trophy, we are sure that they will want to have as little stress as possible in the Premier League this season.
In 4 of the last 5 duels between each other, both teams managed to score at least one goal.
Injuries and suspensions
West Ham: Aguerd i Diop.
Manchester City: Laporte.
Due to the quality of the players, the visiting team is a big favorite in this match. But as this is the first round, surprises are very possible.
The home ground has been West Ham’s main strength for years, and with more than 60,000 people expected at the London Stadium tomorrow, the away team will certainly be under pressure.
Their meetings are very dynamic, and it often happened that both teams scored at least one goal. As it is the opening of the new season, it is very likely that this tradition could continue.
