Manchester City have been in good form and haven’t lost in 14 matches now. Manager Manuel Pellegrini has a deep squad to pick from and will be able to select some players who are not getting too many minutes in the Premier League. However, Pellegrini will be looking for silverware in his first season as Manchester City manager and could try to win this tie in the first leg by selecting his strongest team.
Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Micah Richards and Stevan Jovetic all remain injured for Manchester City.
West Ham’s squad is currently ravaged by injury and suspensions. Manager Sam Allardyce has already admitted that his team currently picks itself. The Hammers have only won one game on the round all season and suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.
Allardyce commented the following about the upcoming fixture: “It’s a tough one, isn’t it? If it had been one leg and if it was a draw and it pulled out that it was at our place, not at theirs, it would have been nice.”
Mark Noble, James Collins, Ricardo Vaz Te, and Winston Reid are all injured and captain Kevin Nolan will also be suspended.
With Manchester City’s strong home performances vs West Ham’s inexperienced back four, this could be another massacre at the Etihad.
Man City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy; Nasri, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas; Negredo, Dzeko
West Ham: Jaaskelainen; Demel, McCartney, Rat, O’Brien; Diarra, Collison, Diame, Taylor, Cole; Maiga
