West Ham vs Man City projected lineups, team news
Moyes has confirmed a clean bill of health in his squad ahead of this game and he could name an unchanged starting XI from their 2-1 win away at Luton Town prior to the international window.
West Ham projected lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Areola (GK) — Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson — Alvarez, Ward-Prowse — Bowen, Paqueta, Benrahma — Antonio
Pep Guardiola’s return has been one positive as part of City’s build up with the former Barcelona manager making his return to the dugout after missing two games due to back surgery.
The returning Guardiola has confirmed Mateo Kovacic, John Stones and Jack Grealish are all sidelined through injury, with captain Kevin De Bruyne still out of action.
Those absences could force a reshuffle for City with Kalvin Phillips and Bernardo Siva tipped to come in.
Man City projected lineup (4-2-3-1 right to left): Ederson (GK) — Walker, Dias, Akanji, Ake — Rodri, Phillips — Alvarez, Silva, Foden — Haaland
West Ham vs Man City prediction, odds
City won home and away in Premier League action against West Ham last season, and despite some key absences, and the Hammers’ own strong form, Guardiola will be confident of a tight win.
Prediction: West Ham 0-1 Man City
