The latest West Ham v Man City odds with Manchester City looking ominous in the betting to secure the away win in London.
Manchester City are labelled as 8/11 favourites to pick up a win against West Ham and pick up their first away win of the season.
Although Manchester City have been in formidable form at home, their away form has been dire this season which means that hosts West Ham could be in line to spring yet another shock on Saturday evening.
City currently sit 5th in the Premier League but the 2011-12 Premier League champions have only picked up one point in their first three away games as they have struggled to get any consistent form in the league.
Much of this has been down to the absence of club captain Vincent Kompany who will once again miss a trip out of Manchester who is still battling several niggling injuries that have limited his number of appearances during the first few months of the season.
With Martin Demichelis also still not quite fully fit since arriving on deadline day, it means that the highly criticised partnership of Matija Nastasic and Joleon Lescott could once again start at the back for city.
West Ham have had a relatively slow start to the season currently lying in 13th place having accumulated 8 points in the first seven games.
However, Sam Allardyce’s side have been hit by another big injury blow with Welsh defender James Collins picking up a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw between Belgium and Wales on Tuesday night.
Collins’ absence in the third major injury to the West Ham line-up who are also missing lead striker Andy Carroll with a foot injury and midfielder Alou Diarra who is nursing a knee problem.
West Ham have had trouble scoring goals since the start of the season having only scored 4 for the entire season so The Hammers have turned to former striker Carlton Cole to try and make a difference after he resigned with the club during the international break.
Cole is expected to have a place on the West Ham bench although poor fitness levels will likely mean that is return will be a cameo appearance at best.
West Ham have been solid if unspectacular all season but they will need to step things up another level if they
want to prevent Manchester City from picking up their first away win of the season.
