Ian Wright has predicted in The Sun that West Ham United will suffer a heavy defeat to Manchester City this weekend.

West Ham will take on City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Former Arsenal and West Ham striker Wright believes that the Citizens will win the match comprehensively and will score six goals - quite an astonishing prediction indeed.

David Moyes, Manager of Sunderland looks on during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on May 21, 2017 in London, England.

Wright wrote in The Sun: “This is going to be messy! The only thing standing in the way of City and a comprehensive win here is City themselves.

“They’ll score as many as they want. It’ll be 1-0 or 2-0 if they’re not at the races, 6-0 or 7-0 if they are.”

“I’m going for 6-0 at 16/1,” added Wright. “It could be anything like I said but my gut is saying 6-0.”

City are the best team in England and arguably the best in Europe at the moment, and given how West Ham are playing at the moment, it is hard to see them win at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Hammers were all over the place against Everton at Goodison Park in midweek, and City are a much, much better team.

Pep Guardiola’s side should win Sunday’s encounter quite comprehensively, but they may not score six or seven goals after.

After all, Moyes will know that his players have to be defensive, and the former Everton boss will be prepared.
