West Ham vs Man City

HollyWood Bets

Manchester City, the defending champions, have had a strong start in the Premier League, winning all their opening games. Despite their coach, Pep Guardiola, being absent due to surgery, they secured wins against teams like Sheffield United and Fulham. Their 5-1 victory over Fulham was notable with Erling Haaland scoring a hat-trick. However, West Ham has also shown promise this season with three wins and a draw from their first four matches. They’ve already defeated teams like Chelsea and Brighton. While West Ham could potentially challenge City in their upcoming match at the London Stadium, a prediction of over 3.5 goals seems more plausible. West Ham has been in good scoring form, and City, despite their offensive prowess, has shown some defensive vulnerabilities. A 2-2 score is a potential outcome. For goal-scoring, while Haaland is a top contender, West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, with three goals this season, is also one to watch.


Expect a high-scoring affair at the London Stadium, as these teams have netted a combined 20 Premier League goals this season. Consider betting on more than 3.5 goals in the capital match-up.

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals

Man Utd vs Brighton


Manchester United suffered a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal before the international break, with a late potential winning goal disallowed due to offside. Their performance has raised concerns in various areas, including defense and key players like Anthony Martial and Casemiro underperforming. On the other hand, Brighton has been in excellent form, securing significant wins over teams like Luton, Wolves, and Newcastle. They currently sit in the top six and are seen as a challenge for Manchester United, especially recalling Brighton’s victory over them last season. Brighton’s Solly March, with three goals in four matches, is expected to be a significant threat. A 2-1 score in favor of Brighton is predicted for the upcoming match.


Manchester United currently faces uncertainties, making them vulnerable against the in-form Brighton. It might be wise to support Brighton in the draw-no-bet market.
