Preview

Pep Guardiola’s side have won 19 matches in a row, and the unbeaten run in all competitions now stretches to 26 matches.

On the other side, West Ham are currently riding the good form train and will come into Manchester and the Etihad clash with heads held high with confidence. In UCL places, the hammers will look to keep pace with the top 4 and this match should be a good indicator of where they are. Pep v Moyes should be much fun.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side will have only one absence with Nathan Ake out.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-0 West Ham
