Full line-ups and team news: Manchester City make four changes for clash against West Ham
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has made four chances to his team for Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash against West Ham – KICK OFF 16:00
Leroy Sane, David Silva and Eliaquim Mangala have been recalled into the side, with Danilo making only his fourth start in the league.
Fernandinho and Vincent Kompany have been rested ahead of next weekend’s Manchester derby against Manchester United, with both players one booking away from suspension.
City are looking to extend their sensation run of 12 straight Premier League victories and maintain their big lead at the top of the table.
They take on a West Ham side who are yet to taste victory under new manager David Moyes, but the Scot insisted in the build-up to this game: “I’ve never gone into any game thinking we’ve not got a chance of winning.”
However, the struggling Hammers – who are seven league games without victory and currently sit 19th in the table – will have a job to do to stop the City juggernaut, and many feel this could be another embarrassing whitewash.
Confirmed team line-ups:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Mangala, Danilo, Delph, De Bruyne, D Silva, Sterling, Sane, Aguero
Subs: Bravo, Yaya Toure, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Bernardo, Jesus, Kompany
West Ham XI: Adrian, Zabaleta, Rice, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Fernandes, Kouyate, Obiang, Masuaku, Lanzini, Antonio.
Subs: Arnautovic, Sakho, Ayew, Martinez, Quina, Trott, Johnson
