Jimmy Bullard is not confident with his prediction of West Ham United to beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup tomorrow.

When you have won six out of your last seven fixtures, including a 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the last round of the Carabao Cup, you would feel pretty confident about your chances of winning going into round four.

That is, however, unless you’re going up against the side that has lifted the last four trophies and hasn’t lost in the competition since 2016.

Pundit and former Hammers academy player Bullard has predicted a tight encounter in his EFL Round Four column.

“I went early being a Hammer, but I can’t change it now, can I? That’s going to be a tough one.”

Biased Bullard?

Pep Guardiola’s side go into the fixture having only lost once in all competitions since the opening day of the Premier League season, where they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But with West Ham having just beaten Spurs 1-0 in their most recent game, David Moyes may be telling his team that they have a good chance to be the first side to beat Manchester City in the league cup since their cross-town rivals United. And that loss came exactly five years ago today.

With Michail Antonio likely to lead the line at the London Stadium tomorrow, looking for his third goal in the last five matches, Moyes and the Hammers fans will be hoping he can lead them to victory.

West Ham will likely be without Vladimir Coufal and Ryan Fredericks again for this tie, so will look to young Ben Johnson to keep Jack Grealish quiet, just like he did to Heung-Min Son this weekend.
