Man City v West Ham team news

Man City: Pep Guardiola’s troops eased past Monchengladbach on Wednesday without any fresh injuries, which means Nathan Ake is their only absentee for this game.

Kevin De Bruyne could come back into the starting XI in pace of Bernardo Silva, while Sergio Aguero is likely to remain on the bench.

West Ham: Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko are out through injury, while a knee problem will keep Arthur Masuaku on the sidelined until mid-March.

Apart from that Moyes has a strong side to choose from. Expect Spurs’ tormentors Michail Antonio and Jesse Lingard to start once again.

Our prediction: Man City v West Ham

Moyes lucked in with the January signing of Lingard from Manchester United but West Ham were ticking along nicely already by that time.

This side has proved resolute at the back against arguably better opponents this season and matched City man for man back in October.

However, with City’s stellar cast it is hard to see how Guardiola’s men don’t edge this tie over 90 minutes at home. It could be close – and certainly one to watch – but the hosts will claim all three points.

Our prediction: Man City 2-1 West Ham (9/1 at bet365)
