How we predict West Ham will line up vs Man City

West Ham‘s unlikely Champions League push meets its biggest test as the Hammers face Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s side on a 19-game winning run in all competitions.

Michail Antonio returned from hamstring trouble to score against Tottenham last weekend as has no new issues. Ryan Fredericks is “touch and go” with a groin injury but there are no fresh concerns.

“For the moment we seem okay,” said Moyes. “We still have Arthur [Masuaku] coming back, [Andriy] Yarmolenko still has a medial knee ligament injury and Ryan Fredericks picked up a little bit of a groin strain which is not serious but he is touch and go so we will see how he is today after training.”

Moyes could well revert to a back three shape in order to slow City, with Ben Johnson returning to aid Aaron Cresswell at the back.

West Ham predicted XI (3-4-3): Fabianski; Diop, Dawson, Cresswell; Coufal, Soucek, Rice, Johnson; Bowen, Lingard, Antonio
