Manchester City will lock horns with West Ham United at the London Stadium this Sunday afternoon as they look to win and take one step closer to the Premier League title. The Mancunian outfit managed to pick up a dominant 5-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek which will give them a lot of momentum ahead of this game.
Pep Guardiola could stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and will be forced to make some changes to his first XI for this game. Nathan Ake and Riyad Mahrez might both play from the start in this weekend’s clash at East London.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after shipping in one goal in his last league appearance. Rodri will have to serve as a makeshift centre-back alongside Nathan Ake as they focus on securing a clean sheet this weekend.
Joao Cancelo will look to impress at right-back while Oleksandr Zinchenko hopes to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to express themselves in the West Ham half.
Both Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte will miss this league game because of injuries.
Guardiola could name a midfield comprised of Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva. Their main focus would be to dominate the ball collectively and create enough clear-cut chances to win this contest.
De Bruyne scored four goals versus Wolves in midweek, so he will fancy his chances of producing another match-winning performance this weekend.
Phil Foden will get the nod to feature as the left-sided wide player while Riyad Mahrez tries to weave his magic from the right.
Raheem Sterling could get a chance to lead the line for Man City down the middle. He managed to net a goal in his last league outing which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game.
Gabriel Jesus will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to catch the eye in the second 45 minutes if needed.
