West Ham’s game away at Manchester City has been rearranged for Wednesday February 19th, as confirmed via the club’s official website.

And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the news…

 

Despite the West Ham fans’ comments, the rearranged date might actually work in the east London outfit’s favour.

City face Leicester away on Saturday 22nd February, just three days after the West Ham game. The Hammers, meanwhile, don’t play again until Monday the 24th, when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side also face Real Madrid away a week after they play host to David Moyes’s men at the Etihad.

Who knows? West Ham might just catch City cold. The reigning Premier League champions also might be tempted to play a weakened side, with so many big games coming up away from the Premier League.

Guardiola will surely now be prioritising the FA Cup and Champions League, considering the fact that they are 22 points adrift of Liverpool in the title race.

Whatever happens, West Ham will have to be on their absolute best form, if they are to have any chance against Manchester City.

And with absolutely no expectations, the Hammers might just spring a surprise at the Etihad.

Although history certainly isn’t on their side. West Ham have lost their last seven league meetings with City and have only ever won once at the Etihad.
