Manchester City have the chance to return to the top of the English Premier League table if they can muster a win against West Ham on Wednesday.

City are on a eight-game winning streak in the league and are in second place with 76 points, two behind leaders Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola’s side have two games in hand and are looking to take full advantage of that starting with this game.

West Ham come into the game on the back of consecutive league defeats, leaving them in 15th place with 34 points.

Erling Haaland has 34 Premier League goals to his name and is just one goal away from breaking the all-time scoring record for a single season.

City are unbeaten in their 14 games against West Ham United in the Premier League, with their previous defeat coming by a 2-1 margin in 2015.

The hosts have won their last six meetings with the Hammers at the Etihad and currently boast the best home record, picking up 43 points from a possible 48.

Manchester City have found the back of the net in each of their last 30 home games in the Premier League and are expected to continue that run here.

Can the Hammers stop City from extending their winning streak or will Haaland lead City to yet another emphatic victory?
