Manchester United legend Gary Neville has aimed a hilarious dig at West Ham’s form ahead of their trip to Manchester City on Sunday.
The Hammers have been in a rotten run of form and are placed 19th in the Premier League standings.
Pep Guardiola’s Man City on the other hand have been rampant and are yet to lose a match in the English top-flight, leading the way at the top of the table by five points with a game in hand.
However Sky Sports pundit Neville has joked that the Hammers are in good form and is expecting them to earn a win against the title favourites.
“Off to the Etihad for City v West Ham. West Ham are in good form so I expect an away win,” he joked, on his personal Twitter account on Sunday.

West Ham have not won in their last seven Premier League outings and experienced a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Everton on Wednesday night, who were equally out-of-form.
The Hammers have suffered heavy defeats to Brighton, Liverpool and Everton and know that even if they do cause an upset at the Etihad this weekend, they would have to win by a stunning eight goals in order to move out of the relegation zone due to their woeful goal difference.
Crystal Palace’s draw with West Brom on Saturday moved them up above David Moyes’ side while the Baggies stay 17th and three points clear of the bottom three after appointing Alan Pardew earlier this week.
