Team News

City

Pep Guardiola has an almost fully fit squad to choose from ahead of our clash with the Hammers.

The boss, however, did not reveal whether the Nathan Ake would be back in contention after an injury lay-off.

West Ham

The visitors' trip to the Etihad will come too soon for both defender Arthur Masuaku and wide midfielder Andriy Yarmalenko as they recover from injury.

Ryan Fredericks is also a doubt picking up a groin strain, but David Moyes revealed the full back would be assessed in more detail after Friday's training session.

Form Guide

City go into the game on a record breaking run of form, with Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League making it 12 consecutive victories on the road in all competitions.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won 19 matches in a row, and our unbeaten run in all competitions now stretches to 26 matches.

In that period, we have scored 61 and conceded just seven, with 23 wins and three draws.

Nonetheless, West Ham are currently riding the crest of a wave and will come into our Etihad clash brimming with confidence.

But for an FA Cup Fifth Round defeat to Manchester United, David Moyes’ side are unbeaten in February, picking up three wins and a draw in that time.

The Hammers sit in the Champions League places and have not tasted defeat on the road in the Premier League since 21st December.

Pep Guardiola preview

“It will be a really tough game tomorrow, really tight. They are a good team.

"After I don't know how many games we played, they are in a Champions League position. That is not a good run, that’s many months and they are there.

"The rhythm they play is better now than other seasons.

"Antonio is always a headache for his movements - he is dangerous.

"David Moyes, I admire these kinds of people. Like Roy Hodgson - they have long careers. I would love these kinds of careers."

Last Meeting

It was honours even between the two teams when they locked horns in the capital back in October.

Michail Antonio had put the hosts ahead with a spectacular overhead kick, but City responded five minutes into the second half when Phil Foden turned and finished impressively from Joao Cancelo’s pass.

The stalemate left the two sides in 11th and 12th place respectively with the season still in its early stages.
