Will West Ham benefit from Manchester City’s European schedule?


Manchester City were halted, with a heaving shudder, by Juventus in Europe this week. The Italian giant had yet to win in Serie A, but were oozing with exactly the sort of aristocratic nous that wins you these heavyweight, ding-dong European affairs. Manchester City’s feathers, which were standing at full height thanks to their perfect start to the Premier League campaign, have been squashed by this loss, more than a little, and they have only a few days to re-plump their plumage before West Ham visit the Etihad Stadium. Dank thoughts about exactly what plagues City in Europe can only be mulled over briefly before domestic business is resumed. Of course, for West Ham, it is ideal that their opponents are coming off such a deflating loss. But in addition to this, will City’s shortened preparation time also affect the outcome of this weekend’s fixture?
