West Ham vs Man City Live Stream : Manchester City face tough trip to Upton Park
West Ham face Man City with the game live streaming, plus latest betting odds as Manchester City and Sergio Aguero look to close the gap on Chelsea.
Manchester City will bid to cut the gap at the top of the table to two points when they travel to London to take on in-form West Ham.
With Chelsea in action on Sunday against City’s cross town rivals, Manchester United, Manuel Pellegini’s men have the opportunity to pile on some pressure.
To do that they will need to bounce back from the disappointment of letting slip a 2-0 lead midweek against CSKA Moscow in the Champions league.

Not only that but they also face a West Ham side that is currently fourth in the table with just one defeat in their last 5 games.
Under-fire last season, on the up this time round, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is a perfect example of the fickle nature of football.
While he won’t be complaining of this reversal of fortune he will hope that his side can continue their fine form and upset the defending champions, avenging the 14 goals they conceded in four meetings last season in the process.
“We’ve got a different team to last season,” he said. “Obviously the players that are still here will remember that we didn’t get anything from them.
“There wasn’t much we could do in the Capital One [League Cup] semi-finals due to injuries at that time.
“They’re a fabulous side, but if we’re going to get anything from them it’s now, while we’re in form. As well as them coming back from a Champions League away game.
“We’re in good, confident form but for me it’s about getting the players to their top level. We’ll have to play like we did [in the 3-1 win] against Liverpool, probably even better. We’ll have to work hard and make sure we contain their fantastic front line especially.”
The Hammers have some mixed news ahead of the game with Cheikhou Kouyate (groin) and James Tomkins (thigh) available and Mauro Zarate (knock) and Guy Demel (thigh) doubtful.
City, unbeaten in their last five in all competitions, will be without Samir Nasri while Frank Lampard is a doubt.
