Taking to his personal Twitter account, Don Hutchison has admitted that he fancies West Ham to defeat Manchester City this weekend.
I didn’t fancy West Ham last week,but I certainly do this weekend— Don Hutchison (@donhutch4) January 22, 2016
The former Hammers star - who spent two spells with the club as a player - was not confident that the East London side would defeat Newcastle last weekend, a prediction which came true.
The Magpies won 2-1, racing into an early lead which the Hammers could never recover.
However, Hutchison is much more confident that Slaven Bilic’s men will win this weekend, despite the game against Manchester City being harder on paper than a game against Newcastle.
The Hammers have a great record against the bigger teams this season, but have messes up against the smaller sides, and they will pose City a real threat this weekend.
City have been struggling away from home recently, and although Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll are out injured, Bilic can call upon enough good players to field a strong starting XI.
The West Ham players have looked more motivated than their opponents many times this season, and this fighting spirit from the team should be enough to see them to a victory against City.
