West Ham V Manchester City: Preview and Possible XI

  • Premier League: Matchweek 13
  • Venue: London Stadium
  • Date: Saturday, 24 November
  • Kick-off time: 3PM GMT

Manuel Pellegrini will play against his former side Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side have scored 103 goals in three visits to the London Stadium and the champions remain unbeaten in the Premier League. West Ham will take confidence from holding Chelsea and beating Manchester United earlier this season.

FACTS:

West Ham are looking to secure a second consecutive home league win for the first time since December 2016, when they beat Burnley and Hull City.

The Hammers will be aiming to improve their PL record against teams lying top of the table, having won only one of their last 15 matches against the leaders. However, that victory came against Man City, in September 2015.

Manchester City can become the second ever non-London club to win six consecutive top-flight fixtures in the capital after Portsmouth, who achieved that feat between December 1950 and December 1951.

David Silva has been directly involved in eight goals in his 11 PL matches against West Ham, with four strikes and four assists. He only has a better record against Newcastle United in the competition, having been involved in nine goals.

POSSIBLE LINE-UP:

West Ham: Fabianski; Zabaleta, Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell; Noble, Rice, Obiang; Antonio, Arnautovic, Anderson

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Fernandinho, D.Silva; Sterling, Aguero, Sane

  • Referee: Andre Marriner
  • Assistants: Scott Ledger, Simon Long
  • Fourth official: Keith Stroud
