Manchester City beats in the championship!
Man City have 19 consecutive victories in all competitions after the success over the troubled Gladbach this week.
In addition, they have 19 consecutive victories in the English Premier League.
This incredible series is entirely due to the correct methodology and strategy of Josep Guardiola.
And his main ideas for this season are beautifully described in the following article: What changed Guardiola in Man City and why!
It is a must-read for anyone who can analyze football matches.
A typical illustration of Pep's approach is, for example, the last victory over Arsenal. Early goal in the 2nd minute.
And from there until the end of the meeting the so-called "Active defense" with continuous possession of the ball and without any chance for the opponent's position.
In general, this approach has really become a trademark.
And at least so far none of the teams in the Premier League has found a successful counteraction.
Manchester City of 18 wins, have 13 with 2 or fewer goals. And only 4 of their 12 households had over 2.5 goals in them.
West Ham has targeted the Top 4!
However, the metamorphosis that the West Ham team underwent is also huge.
David Moyes was called on fire to return to the club during the last campaign to save them from relegation.
And now they are in 4th place in the Premier League. And the goal in front of him is a place for the Champions League.
Completely realistic, of course. But they are only 2 points above the 5th Chelsea and 5 points above the 7th in the standings.
West Ham have won 3 of their last 4 league games.
Forecast for Man City - West Ham
This match is a derby at the top. In which not only the 1st and 4th in the ranking meet. But both teams are in the best momentary form.
West Ham have no new staffing problems after the meeting with Tottenham.
And Manchester City have retained many of their key players against Gladbach. And now they will be in good shape for this match.
Historically, the Hammers have not had a victory over the Citizens for over 5 years.
Of course, it seems more likely to be a new success for Man City.
But there is no football match with such a high probability of victory as the odds require for them.
In other words, there is no value in it.
Probability of winning or a draw of 25%, however, of a team in top form is something incredibly good.
Among other things, there is xG data for the expected slight decrease in the home goal difference of the Citizens of almost 4 goals.
While maintaining that of the Hammers as a guest at the same level.
This is a signal for professional bettors that in the upcoming 3 matches Manchester City will lose points at home.
Opportunities are West Ham, Man United and Southampton. I choose to be against the team in the best shape of them.

- security: 5/10
