West Ham United will entertain Manchester City at the London Stadium this Sunday as they look to grind out a good result at home. The Hammers managed to secure a 4-0 win over Norwich City last Sunday, so they will fancy their chances of causing an upset versus the Mancunian outfit this weekend.

David Moyes could set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make one change to his first XI for this game. Tomas Soucek might play from the start for West Ham in this crucial league encounter at home.

Łukasz Fabiański will feature in between the sticks for the Hammers after he secured a clean sheet in his last Premier League outing. Kurt Zouma will keep his place alongside Craig Dawson, who is a major doubt for this game, at the heart of Moyes’ defence as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.

Vladimír Coufal will fill in at right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will have to do a lot of defending if they are to stop the Man City wide players from getting in behind them out on the flanks.

Declan Rice will anchor the midfield alongside Tomas Soucek as they focus on stopping the opposition from creating too many chances with their passing.

The gifted trio of Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals will function just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. Both Benrahma and Lanzini got their names on the scoresheet versus Norwich which will give them some confidence ahead of this league showdown versus Man City.

Mark Noble and Andriy Yarmolenko will be available for selection on the bench and might come to influence the game in the latter stages if needed.


Jarrod Bowen will lead the charge for West Ham up top in the absence of Michael Antonio who is unlikely to recover in time from his hip injury.
