Confirmed: Manchester City v West Ham lineups - De Bruyne starts, Adrian returns

Here is how Manchester City and West Ham United will line up for tonight's Premier League clash.

Manchester City will be hoping to bounce back from the midweek Champions League defeat to Juventus when they host West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have won all five of their Premier League games this season, and haven't even conceded a goal in a remarkable start to the campaign for City.

Tonight, Pellegrini has handed a first Premier League start to new signing Kevin de Bruyne, with the Belgian international forming a dangerous attacking midfield trident alongside David Silva and Raheem Sterling.

Defender Nicolas Otamendi also starts with Vincent Kompany out injured, whilst Pablo Maffeo is handed a spot on the bench.

Meanwhile, West Ham's 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday gave Slaven Bilic another victory having previously beaten Liverpool 3-0 away from home.

With away wins over Liverpool and Arsenal, the Hammers have been haunting the so-called 'big clubs' this season, and will be looking for another shock result this evening.

Bilic has brought Adrian back in to the side following suspension, with Darren Randolph moving down to the substitutes bench.

Andy Carroll continues on the bench, with Reece Oxford on the bench given Cheikhou Kouyate's absence this evening.
