West Ham United will play hosts to Manchester City this weekend at the London Stadium looking to put some distance between themselves and the drop zone in the league table. David Moyes’ team are in a strong position to avoid getting into relegation trouble going into the final stretch of this campaign. However, they will come across the newly crowned champions of England on Sunday which means that they would have to be at their best to have any chance of earning a result.

The Hammers recently got thumped by Arsenal with a 4-1 scoreline so they will need to put on a much-improved showing at home versus City. Moyes is expected to stick with his favoured 3-4-2-1 formation and will be forced to play Adrian over his first-choice keeper, Joe Hart, who is not available to line up against his parent club.

3-4-2-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester City

Defence

Joe Hart will be ineligible to face his parent club and so, the English keeper would have to sit out of this clash. Adrian will start in the Hammers goal and will be shielded by Declan Rice, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell, who will make up the three men backline for the home team.

West Ham United boss David Moyes will be hoping for a solid defensive display at the London Stadium against the champions of England to give themselves the best possible chance of earning a result on Sunday. However, they have shipped in 4 goals in their last league encounter which will be a cause for concern.

Midfield

The duo of Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate are likely to start at the centre of the park with Pablo Zabaleta operates on the right flank while Arthur Masuaku looks to put in a shift on the left-hand side of the West Ham midfield. They will be responsible to create some opportunities for their front players to feed on!

Attack

The pair of Joao Mario and Manuel Lanzini might be deployed behind Marko Arnautovic, who could lead the lines as part of David Moyes’ attack this weekend. The Austrian forward would be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet versus the Citizens after finding the back of the net twice against Arsenal last weekend. The 28-year-old forward has been in sensational form in recent matches and has scored 10 goals while providing 6 assists in 31 appearances for West Ham this season across all competitions.
