Our Blues will be looking to rebound after a sub-optimal match against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday. The Hammers will be looking pick up at least a point and move themselves up the table as they try to avoid the drop zone this season. A City win would be a huge boost for the club as it would begin to inch the boys closer to league leaders Chelsea. Last year City battered West Ham 4 times, and there’s no reason why they can’t do it again! So set multiple alarms, put on your kit, and get up to the pub! Get ready to sing loud BMD, because the sound of Fat Sam’s lips smacking together could drown out a jet engine! We can’t wait to see you up at the Heart of the City and cheer on THE CHAMPIONS!!
