TEAM NEWS

Ruben Dias, John Stones and Kyle Walker are out for City.

At his press conference on Friday afternoon, Pep Guardiola revealed Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte both picked up knocks against Wolves and will be assessed on matchday ahead of Sunday's game.

Michail Antonio (hip,) Craig Dawson (calf) and Said Benrahma (ankle) all face late fitness tests for the Hammers, while Angelo Ogbonna is ruled out.

PEP GUARDIOLA PREVIEW

"West Ham have been extraordinary the last two seasons, not just this one, the previous one. They made an incredible season in all competitions, especially in the Europa League.

"Unfortunately they were not lucky in the game against Frankfurt and after a few minutes Cresswell was sent off and it is so difficult to manage these type of games with 10 against 11.

"They had an incredible season and are so strong in many departments. At set pieces and in the middle with Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

"They attack the chance perfectly, quality with Manuel Lanzini, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals. They are a top side, a difficult one, but at the same time we know how important it is."

PREVIOUS MEETING

City had to battle a dogged West Ham and blizzard conditions to edge a narrow 2-1 victory at the Etihad.

In freezing temperatures, Ilkay Gundogan gave City a first-half lead after good work by Riyad Mahrez.

And though chances came and went for the champions, sub Fernandinho's 90th-minute goal proved vital, with Manuel Lanzini pulling one back in added time.

LAST TIME OUT

A superb Kevin De Bruyne quadruple in midweek inspired City to a 5-1 Premier League victory over Wolves, putting City three points clear at the top of the table.

FORM GUIDE

City boast a superb away league record so far this season, losing just once in our opening game of the season away to Tottenham Hotspur.

Pep Guardiola's men have also won the last five league games, scoring 22 goals and conceding just twice in the process.

As for the Hammers, their form has dipped of late, with David Moyes' side winning just once in their last five Premier League games, though they won last time out, beating Norwich 4-0 at Carrow Road.
