Manchester City vs West Ham UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 12:30 Feb 27, 2021, Etihad Stadium
THE Manchester City juggernaut just keeps on rolling and the runaway Premier League leaders will look to chalk up an incredible 20th successive victory when they host West Ham.
City's amazing run faced a tough test in midweek against Monchengladbach in the Champions League but Pep Guardiola's men swatted the Germans aside and eased to a 2-0 win.
They are still on track for an unprecedented Quadruple and it's certainly hard to see any side halting them domestically as they look to repeat the Treble of season 2018/19.
In-form West Ham will give it their best shot though and Davie Moyes' side proved they can upset the big guns by dumping Spurs 2-1 last weekend, with my BTTS and over 2.5 goals tip coming up.
That moved the Hammers up into fourth place and there are now hopes they can go from fighting relegation to qualifying for the Champions League in the space of just one season.
How the bookies view it
It's no surprise to see Man City as heavy favourites and they are a best 3/11 with SBK to win. West Ham are 25/2 with the same firm to win while the stalemate pays 6/1.
Recent head to head
Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 11 games against the Hammers, winning nine. But Moyes can take some heart from the fact his side drew 1-1 with Guardiola's men at the London Stadium earlier this season (below).
When the sides met at the Etihad last season it ended in a 2-0 victory for City with Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne on target.
Players to watch
Guardiola (below) might be tempted to make a few changes with this game sandwiched between midweek matches against Monchengladbach and Wolves. Riyad Mahrez came off the bench against the Germans and is 8/5 with Unibet to net his ninth of the season here.
Michail Antonio scored an overhead kick in that 1-1 draw earlier in the season and will again be the man West Ham rely on for goals. The striker is 4/1 with TonyBet for a goal which looks a bit overpriced.
Anything else catch the eye?
The Hammers have been decent at the back all season so I'm going for under 2.5 goals at 29/20 with TonyBet, a bet that landed when these sides met at the London Stadium. A one-goal winning margin for either side also appeals at 235/100 with the same firm.
Vladimir Coufal was booked in the earlier clash with City so the Czech full-back looks a bit overpriced for a card here at 5/1 with Unibet.
