Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs West Ham United


Manchester City enter a mid-week Premier League clash against West Ham United at a very pivotal time in their club history. UEFA brought the hammer down on them this past Friday, and the club have made clear their intentions to appeal the ruling.

Reports have also surfaced that City have a dossier on the inner financial workings of rival clubs, and if that’s the case, this story is only beginning to scratch the surface. In the meantime, they have a rescheduled fixture, washed out and blown away by Storm Ciara, to play against the relegation fodder Hammers. Let’s take a look at what kind of line-up Pep Guardiola might select in this match, one that will be played under the shadow of the off the pitch events.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction: Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva; Bernardo, Mahrez; Aguero
