- Man City recorded their eighth Premier League victory of the season last weekend strolling past Everton 3-0, before an outstanding 2-1 victory against French giants PSG midweek in the Champions League
- Influential midfielders Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are each significant doubts for the visit of the Hammers, with both Ferran Torres and Liam Delap still ruled out through injury and Kevin De Bruyne isolating following a positive COVID-19 test.
- West Ham face a tough test physically here after competing in the Europa League only this past Thursday and defeat here would see them fall six points behind Man City in the Premier League table.
- Manager David Moyes has revealed that centre-back Angelo Ogbonna will be out for the foreseeable future due to him requiring surgery on a knee injury, so Craig Dawson is expected to line-up as Kurt Zouma's defensive partner at least until January when reinforcements can be brought in.
THE TEAM NEWS
PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Palmer, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Sterling
UNAVAILABLE: De Bruyne (Isolating), Delap (Injured), Torres (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Foden (Injured), Grealish (Injured)
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Johnson, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio
UNAVAILABLE: Ogbonna (Injured)
West Ham have proven this season that they can match up to sides like Man City and the visitors cannot be taken lightly here with the likes of Antonio, Bowen and Benrahma capable of hurting Guardiola’s side if given the opportunity. However, West Ham’s already difficult challenge has been made even harder by the fact that Man City enjoy two days of extra rest leading into this fixture. Combine that with home advantage alongside the strength-in-depth of their squad and a Man City victory is the outcome that has to be backed in this one.
Tip: MAN CITY TO WIN
