Manchester City take on West Ham United on Aug. 28 at 11am EST at the Etihad Stadium, with all to play for in the Premier League. Can City continue their impressive start to the season under new coach Pep Guardiola? Click here for the live stream to find out!
Now, there’s a lot going on at City behind the scenes that, not only spell a revolution, but could hurt player morale. Pep doesn’t appear to rate goalkeeper Joe Hart, with the England international set to leave the team before the transfer deadline on Aug. 31. To further outline his intentions, Pep and City have struck a deal with Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who will be Joe’s replacement.
West Ham United tasted victory in their opening home game at their new stadium, earning a narrow 1-0 win over Bournemouth. They were unlucky to drop their first match of the season against Chelsea, but things have been looking up. West Ham have been spending big in the transfer market, and they’re looking to add City’s Wilfried Bony to their roster, as well as Chelsea’s Loic Remy.
There’s a lot of buzz around the East Londoners at the moment, and rightly so, as they attempt to break into the top four and challenge the likes of Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea.
But this will be a huge ask for them to come up trumps against City’s firepower, who have been scoring goals for fun. With Sergio Aguero in their lineup, the master marksman of the Premier League, West Ham’s defense will be under pressure from the start.
HollywoodLifers, can the Hammers upset the Citizens and halt their epic start to the season? Or will City continue their awesome start to the season and batter their rivals? Tell us what you think the score will be below!
