Oleksandr Zinchenko is suspended after being sent off at Spurs.

Leroy Sane has returned to training but remains a few weeks away from a return according to manager Pep Guardiola.

Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh), Felipe Anderson (chest) and Jack Wilshere (groin) are injured for the Hammers and not expected to be fit for next Wednesday. 

Last time out

City suffered a frustrating afternoon at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, going down to a 2-0 defeat to the Londoners.

West Ham, meanwhile, were involved in a six-goal thriller at home to Brighton, sharing the spoils in a 3-3 draw.

Pep's view

“Raheem has a hamstring injury and we will see.

“Of course, it takes weeks, but we will see for Madrid. I don't know (at this stage).

“It’s a problem. It was a problem with Ilkay Gundogan (when he was out) for six months in my first season, and this year Aymeric Laporte has been out. It is what it is. We will see.”
