Pep Guardiola faces his predecessor at Manchester City today with Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham hosting the Premier League champions at their London Stadium this afternoon.
City will be looking to stay top of the pack in the table, but West Ham’s win over Manchester United and draw with Chelsea this season show that they are capable against the big dogs, despite inconsistent form.
Andre Marriner is today’s referee and here are the starting lineups selected by Manuel Pellegrini and his successor at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola:
West Ham XI: Fabianski, Zabaleta (c), Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku, Diangana, Rice, Obiang, Anderson, Antonio, Arnautovic
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Delph, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva (c), Sané, Sterling, Aguero
