PREVIEW: Manchester City vs West Ham United – 03/12/17
Manchester City vs West Ham United
Date: Sunday 3rd December
Venue: The Etihad
TV: Sky Sports Premier League
Man City may rotate their squad for the visit of West Ham after a busy schedule of fixtures.
David Silva played only 16 minutes from the bench against Southampton on Wednesday, while Leroy Sane was absent with illness. Both will return against West Ham.
Pep Guardiola may be tempted to give Vincent Kompany a rest, and would bring Eliaquim Mangala in in that case. Elsewhere, Kevin De Bruyne may drop to the bench, the Belgian having played almost every minute of league and Champions League football so far.
West Ham have doubts over defender Winston Reid after he was forced off in the loss to Everton in midweek. Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll remain sidelined, but Michail Antonio is fit to start after coming off the bench against the Toffees.
Joe Hart faces growing calls to be dropped in favour of Adrian, but David Moyes is unlikely to make a call as big as that in only his third game in charge and a game they are overwhelmingly expected to lose anyway.
Prediction: Manchester City 4 West Ham 0
