Manchester City will travel to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United after wrapping up the league title last weekend. The new champions of England have been the best team in the land by a country mile and they will now look to break even more records in the English top-flight going into the final stretch of this campaign.
The Hammers have managed to get themselves out of relegation trouble for the time being. Pep Guardiola would be aware that his team needs to be at their best to see off David Moyes’ determined West Ham side. It is expected that the City manager will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and might opt to make some changes for this encounter on Sunday.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
Ederson is expected to start in goal for the home team while Claudio Bravo has to be content with a place on the bench. The Brazilian shot-stopper might be protected by a back four of Aymeric Laporte and Vincent Kompany in central defence while Fabian Delph operates as the left-back and Kyle Walker is deployed on the right-hand side of the backline.
Danilo might be named on the bench for this encounter and come on during the contest if required. Pep Guardiola will be hoping that his defenders can keep it tight at the back versus the Hammers on Sunday so that they have a good chance of securing the three points at the London Stadium which might help them break another record in the English top-flight.
The trio of Fernandinho, İlkay Gündoğan and Kevin De Bruyne could be deployed at the centre of the park and the performance of these players will be extremely important if the Citizens are to break down the West Ham defence on Sunday. Yaya Toure and David Silva could be available for a place on the bench for this encounter against David Moyes’ side.
The front three would consist of Gabriel Jesus spearheading the City attack while Leroy Sane looks to use his pace and guile down the left-hand side of the City frontline. Raheem Sterling will start on the right flank and will hope to get his name on the scoresheet as he continues to impress for the Citizens this season.
Bernardo Silva could be available on the bench and might come on during the contest if required.
