Dimitar Berbatov had made his prediction for the Manchester City vs West Ham clash this afternoon.

The Hammers travel to the Etihad to take on Manchester City in the two o’clock kick-off today.

Pep Guardiola’s side will be incredibly hard to beat but let’s be honest, Man City will not be looking forward to playing us one little bit.

David Moyes has West Ham fighting on all fronts this season.

The turnaround that the Scot has overseen at the London Stadium has been quite simply unbelievable.

It should be a cracking game today at the Etihad and one thing’s for sure, Guardiola will not be expecting three points as a given.

Dimitar Berbatov makes four-goal Manchester City vs West Ham prediction

The Hammers are currently sitting in fourth spot in the Premier League table just three points adrift of Man City.

Both clubs will be looking to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea with a win this afternoon.

City will represent one of our very toughest games of the season so far.

And Berbatov explained to the Metro why West Ham could be in for a tough afternoon in Manchester:

“West Ham are pushing and challenging for the top four and they’re playing good football. But I just can’t see them doing it at the Etihad this weekend. Yes, they could surprise them, and it’s not outside the realms of possibility, with the season they have had so far, but I think this might be a step too far so I’ll go for Man City.”

Prediction: 3-1

Now, City could play us off the park if they’re at their best. We can admit that.

The thing is, since Moyes has come in, West Ham are a much more well-organised and well-drilled side.

The Hammers are very hard to break down and we possess a real threat on the counter attack.

Let’s hope that every single West Ham player turns up and we prove Berbatov, as well as plenty of others, wrong.
