Cardiff City vs West Ham United tips karelbramer77
West Ham United recovered from their loss to Manchester City with a comfortable 2 – 0 win over Newcastle United in the last match and find a Cardiff City side winless in the last three matches. Each having ended in defeat. As Cardiff seeks to rise off the red zone, this is not a match they can afford to drop points in, with 17th placed Southampton two points ahead of them. Both teams have not been strong in defence and take to the clash just a clean sheet each, and two wins apiece as well, but Cardiff have three losses, with a combined 10 goals conceded in the process. With just four goals conceded in their last five matches, West Ham will be more confident defensively as they march to this clash. West Ham have no win in the last five away league matches and have also not managed a clean sheet in the same run. It is not like Cardiff City have the best home run ahead of this clash, they have managed just one win in the last six home matches in the league. West Ham have seven straight wins over Cardiff City and have lost to their hosts in their last 12 meetings.
Cardiff City vs West Ham United tips Marc Lawrenson
West Ham are going very well at the moment. It helps that Manuel Lanzini is back from injury but a lot of their better players seem to have found some form. The Hammers look good at the back too, and there seems to a be a much more settled and solid look about them now, compared with the way they started the season. They have improved a lot, something that cannot be said about Cardiff in recent weeks. The Bluebirds have lost their past three games, and it is the manner of those defeats that is worrying. Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has questioned the contribution of some of his players during that run. That is a bad sign, because togetherness is usually one of the key attributes of any Warnock team. It is a bad time of the season for things to go wrong and with games coming up against Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in the next few weeks, Cardiff's main aim has to be to stay in touch with the sides above them. Their situation does not look too clever, but I am reluctant to write off their survival chances because of their manager. Just when you think they are down and out, Warnock does seem to have a knack of getting them going again - although I do think West Ham will come out on top on Saturday. Source: BBC
Cardiff City vs West Ham United tips K. Estefania
West Ham head to this game after having conceded only four goals in their last five games, including one at Manchester City, where almost every team have conceded much more. They are not the most consistent team, but have huge offensive capacity, even when all of their attackers are not to play.
