West Ham have made a very impressive start to the season, as David Moyes's side come into their upcoming match against Manchester City unbeaten in their first four matches (one draw, three wins). It is their best start in over 24 years, but that record will come under serious threat as they prepare to host the reigning Premier League champions.
Indeed, not only have West Ham conceded at least two goals in all but one of their last eight meetings against Manchester City, but also they have failed to win their last 15 meetings against the Manchester giants. It does not read for promising reading for a team who have also struggled to keep clean sheets, with at least one goal conceded in their last seven games across all comps.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are the only side to have earned maximum points from their first four games, which puts Pep Guardiola's men already two points ahead of the chasing pack. It's set to be a very hectic time for the Cityzens, who not only are seeking to defend their domestic crowns but also their European title. Next week will see Manchester City begin their Champions League title defense by taking on Serbian outfit Red Star Belgrade, and while they are the expected favorites to win that game, Guardiola will still need to manage his squad carefully in order to avoid more injuries during a very congested fixture list.
City have not lost their last eight trips to West Ham's home ground, and although the Hammers are having a very strong start to the season, it is hard to see the visiting side losing some of that early momentum that has helped to propel them to the top of the table.
