After qualifying for the FA Cup Fifth Round at weekend, it’s back to the Premier League for Manchester City and it is a very important night in London.
The entire top four dropped points last night, with Chelsea and Liverpool playing out a draw, Spurs being held by Sunderland, and Arsenal falling to a shock defeat at home to Watford. This gives Guardiola’s men a chance to claw back some points, though even a win would keep the Blues in fifth place due to Liverpool’s superior goal difference.
City thrashed West Ham at their new stadium recently in the FA Cup, but Slaven Bilić’s men are finding their form and it should be a closer game tonight.
Kevin Friend is tonight’s referee and here are the lineups the two bosses have gone for:
West Ham XI: Randolph, Byram, Reid, Fonte, Cresswell, Obiang, Noble, Feghouli, Lanzini, Antonio, Carroll
Manchester City XI: Caballero, Sagna, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov, Touré, Sané, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling, Gabriel Jesus
Today’s match can be viewed on BT Sport 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
