West Ham United vs Manchester City match preview

Will Manchester City’s 100% start to the season continue?

The Citizens sit top of the Premier League table as the only side with maximum points on the board, following their 5-1 drubbing of Fulham a fortnight ago.

Julián Álvarez and Nathan Aké on target, before Erling Braut Håland bagged a second half hat-trick.

So, ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League opener against Crvena zvezda, will Pep Guardiola’s team pick up three more points here?

West Ham United meantime know that, should they pull off a shock victory, they would leapfrog their visitors and, potentially, end the night top of the table.

The Hammers made it three victories on the spin by beating Luton Town at Kenilworth Road before the international break, with Jarrod Bowen and Kurt Zouma the scorers.

Manchester City won their first five visits to the London Stadium, scoring 22 goals in these outings.

However, since then, the Sky Blues have won just one of four outings in East London, although this did come when they last pitched up in E20 on the opening day of last season.

So, will Man City’s winning streak continue, or can West Ham spring a surprise against the champions?

West Ham United team news

Tomáš Souček could return in midfield, having sat out the Luton win with concussion, while Mohammed Kudus came off the bench in the dying embers of that one to make his debut.

New centre-back Konstantinos Mavropanos scored twice in Greece’s 5-0 demolition of Gibraltar last Sunday, but Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd remain David Moyes’ first-choice partnership for now.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson; Ward-Prowse, Álvarez, Paquetá, Bowen, Benrahma; Antonio.

Manchester City team news

Jack Grealish missed Man City’s win over Fulham, and then England’s two matches this week, making him a doubt for this one.

In his absence, Phil Foden started on the left a fortnight ago, while Jérémy Doku made his debut on the other flank.

Matheus Nunes was an unused substitute in that one, so could he be in line for his debut?

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ederson; Walker, Rúben Dias, Akanji, Aké; Rodri, Kovačić, Silva, Álvarez, Foden; Håland.
