West Ham on the other hand are yet to hit their top gear. They have some serious injury concerns that had unbalanced the team combination. It is be up to Slaven Bilic to raise his troops after the shock exit from Europa League with the 1-0 home defeat to Romanian outfit Astra Giurgiu.

Manchester City: Team News

Pep has confirmed that the new signing Claudio Bravo will not start against West Ham. And it is almost certain that Joe Hart, who started in the mid-week Champions League tie against Steaua will be dropped back to bench at the expense of Willy Caballero.

Vincent Kompany, Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane are side-lined with injuries, while Kelechi Iheanacho is yet to fully recover from the leg injury he picked up against Steaua Bucuresti on Wednesday.

Manchester City: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)

Caballero – Kolarov, Otamendi, Stones, Sagna – Fernandinho, Silva, DeBruyne – Nolito, Sterling, Aguero.

West Ham Team News

Bilic will be without Andre Ayew, Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll and Aaron Creswell, who are all out with injuries.

The new signings Sofiane Feghouli and Havard Nordtveit are also among the players with fitness issues and are likely to miss the trip to Manchester.

Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini are expected to play some part in the game, if not start from the off.

West Ham: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Adrian – Mausaku, Collins, Reid, Byram – Noble, Kouyate – Antonio, Payet, Tore – Calleri.

Manchester City v West Ham: Head-to-Head

West Ham surprise Man City with a 2-1 win when they visited the Etihad Stadium last season. This was their first away win over City in 10 Premier League fixtures, with their previous win dating back to 2003. Which also state that before that West Ham win, Manchester City had won in 8 and drawn 1 of the 9 home meetings against West Ham.

Manchester City v West Ham: Prediction

Manchester City must be considered as firm favourites to win this one considering their strong form in the first two weeks of the new league season. While West Ham have struggled in each of the four competitive fixtures they have been part of and are left with 1 win, 1 draw and 2 defeats.

There will be no shortage of goals on Sunday as we know how lethal Manchester City can be at times. And at the same time, West Ham have scored in each of their last 15 Premier League games. So both teams to score is a bet with higher probability to profit from this match.

So the bet with a higher odd can be found in Both Teams to Score and Manchester to win at 2.75.
