Manuel Pellegrini: “West Ham are doing very well, especially away. It’s not luck to beat Arsenal and Liverpool – we must be careful.”
Kevin De Bruyne: “I know of Payet because one of my Belgium team-mates, Michy Batshuayi, played alongside him at Marseille for one season and he told me a lot about him. I know Payet had a lot of assists last year and that he’s a really good player so he will be a threat, especially in his current form.”
Jesus Navas: "They look to be a team who are perhaps better suited playing on the road with a fast counter-attack so it should be a good, open game."
Slaven Bilic: "We are confident, this is not a bonus game, I would be very disappointed if we don’t get anything from the game."
Dimitri Payet: "a player that I admire, with the way that he manages, practically every time that he gets the ball, to find space in behind."
Out (City): Clichy, Delph, Kompany, Nasri, Zabaleta
