LIVE: Manchester City vs West Ham

Guardiola has made five changes to the side that lost to Tottenham with Laporte, Mendy, David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Jesus all stepping in to the team. Raheem Sterling misses out on the matchday squad through injury, while Oleksandr Zinchenko is serving a suspension. Meanwhile, Moyes makes just the one change for the visitors with Masuaku replacing Haller in the starting line-up, while Bowen starts on the bench following his deadline-day move from Hull.

SUBS: Jarrod Bowen, Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini, Darren Randolph, Pablo Zabaleta, Sebastien Haller, Fabian Balbuena.

WEST HAM (3-5-2): Lukasz Fabianski; Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Ryan Fredericks, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Mark Noble, Arthur Masuaku; Robert Snodgrass, Michail Antonio.

SUBS: Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Joao Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones, Claudio Bravo, Fernandinho.

MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, Nicolas Otamendi, Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy; Kevin De Bruyne, Rodrigo, David Silva; Bernardo Silva, Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus.

This game’s original postponement also means West Ham have not played since their 3-3 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion at the very start of the month, with Moyes’ side being without a victory in their last five games in all competitions. This concerning run of form has seen West Ham drop into the relegation zone, but they could climb back up to 16th with an unlikely victory in Manchester today.

City are looking to move four points clear of third-placed Leicester City as they welcome David Moyes’ side to the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola’s side have now not played since their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur 17 days ago, with this being owed to the fact their clash with the Hammers was originally postponed due to the weather. City now begin an important seven days which also features clashes with Leicester and Real Madrid, and they will be aiming to start in positive fashion against their east London opponents.
