Predicted Manchester City and West Ham line-ups

Here is how we predict Manchester City and West Ham United will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Saturday 19th September 2015 at 16:30. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 1/4, Draw 9/2, West Ham 9/1

Manchester City welcome West Ham United to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday for the late kick-off.

Considering how the two teams have started the season this match could be an absolute humdinger, especially when you consider the Hammers have already defeated Arsenal and Liverpool on their own grounds in recent weeks.

That said, City have a 100 per cent record and are yet to concede a goal in the league this season, so if Slaven Bilic’s team are to leave with anything they will have to put in quite the performance.

City are currently top of the table while West Ham’s victory against Newcastle United on Monday lifted them to fifth.

In early team news, City are without the injured Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Fabian Delph and Fernando.

Vincent Kompany is a minor doubt with a calf injury but he is rated at 75 per cent to feature.

West Ham must make do without Angelo Ogbonna, Joey O’Brien, Alex Song, Mauro Zarate and Enner Valencia but they now have the squad depth to deal with such absences.
