Betting Tip: West Ham +2.00 @ 11/10 with ladbrokes

Before Monday’s victory over Newcastle, West Ham had twice failed to oblige as favourites this season and twice managed to upset the odds by beating Arsenal and Liverpool away from home.

Slaven Bilic would have taken nine points from five games before the season started and his Hammers side take their 100% away record to the Etihad at perhaps an opportune time to be facing Manchester City.

The Premier League leaders have made a flawless start domestically, although Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat by Juventus has demonstrated that the champions-elect possibly aren’t as flawless as has been suggested.

Indeed, in the game beforehand, Crystal Palace had chances to win against City and Bilic will definitely have a game plan lined up to complete a highly unlikely hat-trick.

BetVictor go 12/1 about a West Ham win and the visitors would be hoping that Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero miss this match, although the pair are likely to recover from minor injuries in time.

Kevin de Bruyne could make his first Premier League start and perhaps City will click into gear and continue their 100% start to the season.

Nevertheless, would you really want to be backing the home side at odds of 2/7? It’s about time they conceded in the Premier League and teams coming off the back of a European performance are often affected by fatigue or some kind of hangover.

We’ll go for West Ham on the handicap market, especially with Dimitri Payet in excellent form for the London side, while clean sheets against Arsenal and Liverpool demonstrate that they can shut up shop against the best of them.
