West Ham vs Man City Lineups and Last Match

West Ham

The Hammers claimed all 3pts in their last Premier League outing away at newly promoted Luton. Bowen scored his third league goal of the season to open the scoring and 5-minutes from the end, Zouma scored the all-important second goal for West Ham as in stoppage time, Luton pulled a goal back to make the final scoreline 2-1. Coufal, Mavropanos and Soucek are all doubts for West Ham this weekend but the international break might just have given each player enough time to recuperate from their various injuries.

Predicted Lineup – Areola (GK), Coufal, Zouma, Emerson, Aguerd, Ward-Prowse, Paquetá, Álvarez, Antonio, Benrahma & Bowen

Man City

Man City made light work of Fulham last time out. Alvarez put the home side in front after 31-minutes and although Fulham equalised soon after, a rare goal from Ake made it 2-1 to Guardiola's men at the break. The second forty-five belonged to Man City with Haaland scoring a hat trick to wrap up a comfortable 5-1 victory. De Bruyne could be joined on the sidelines by the likes of Stones, Grealish and Kovacic this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Ederson (GK), Walker, Aké, Dias, Akanji, Nunes, Rodri, Foden, Haaland, Silva & Álvarez

Player to Watch: Phil Foden

Foden has provided the all-important creative force in Man City's side this season.

Somebody had to step up following De Bruyne's injury and while Man City never rely on one creative player in their starting eleven, Foden has created three goals this season, inserting himself as the club's main creator of goals in the Belgian star's absence.

We're backing Foden to link up with Haaland once again this weekend, driving their team towards an important victory against a very tough and capable West Ham side.
