Manchester City vs West Ham
I know the manager Manuel Pelligrini is under pressure but can you say the same about the City players. It seems so many of them are already thinking of the beach. They have fallen apart in recent weeks.
Six defeats in their last eight games is a disgrace. Players getting massive wages and not turning in a shift. It’s clear there needs to be a bit of a clear out at the club.
They are facing a West Ham side who are also in trouble. One win in their last games says it all. Sam Allardyce also under pressure and set to lose his job with West Ham.
This is a huge game for City . Almost like a cup final they simply have to win this one and I think they will.
