Manchester City are set to face West Ham United at London Stadium this Sunday as they look to secure all three points in their away game. The Sky Blues brought in attacking reinforcements to add to their attacking prowess. Therefore, the Etihad Club would want to see the potential of their new signings as they kick off this campaign in style by securing a win at East London.
Pep Guardiola will utilise the 4-3-3 formation and will probably give Erling Haaland the responsibility to lead the charge in the final third.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
Ederson will operate in goal for Man City as he looks to secure a clean sheet throughout the game. Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias are expected to feature in the heart of the City’s defence as they look to collectively stop West Ham’s attack with Aymeric Laporte injured and John Stones not being match-fit.
Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker will start on the left and right-back positions hoping to stretch the opposition.
Guardiola’s midfield trio will comprise of Rodri, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bryune, with the latter looking to go deep into the opposition’s backline. Kalvin Phillips will provide cover from the bench, as he might come off in the second half to replace Rodri and create an impact if required.
Phil Foden is expected to feature alongside Riyad Mahrez to provide attacking support from the left and right-wing positions, respectively. Erling Haaland will take the burden of finding the back of the net for the Sky Blues as he leads the attack from the striking position.
Jack Grealish and Julian Alvarez will provide cover from the bench as they might come on to impact the game in the latter stages should the Mancunian giants require a goal by then.
