The next Manchester City match is upon us! The Citizens return to Premier League action at London Stadium against West Ham United, and Pep Guardiola has to cut five players from his provisional squad in order to have 18 in uniform to face the Hammers. Lots of options.

This is the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: 1. Claudio Bravo, 13. Willy Caballero

Defenders: 3. Bacary Sagna, 4. Vincent Kompany, 5. Pablo Zabaleta, 11. Aleksandar Kolarov, 22. Gaël Clichy, 24. John Stones, 30. Nicolas Otamendi

Midfielders: 6. Fernando, 7. Raheem Sterling, 15. Jesús Navas, 17. Kevin De Bruyne, 18. Fabian Delph, 19. Leroy Sané, 21. David Silva, 25. Fernandinho, 42. Yaya Touré, 75. Aleix García

Forwards: 9. Nolito, 10. Sergio Agüero, 33. Gabriel Jesus, 72. Kelechi Iheanacho

With the return of Fernandinho from a four-game suspension, only Ilkay Gundogan, ruled out for the rest of the season, is an absence. Which basically means that the entire squad is available for selection, which has been a rare occurrence this season. Hopefully this trend continues for a while.
