Man City vs West Ham predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League match today

0

Manchester City meet West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon and while City have little to play for right now, West Ham are in desperate need of points to stay in the Premier League.

The Hammers still have both Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko out injured, so David Moyes will again be relying on the creative spark of Robert Snodgrass, who has found form over the past couple of weeks.

City are themselves without Raheem Sterling, who has a hamstring injury, but could be boosted by the return of Aymeric Laporte, although the French defender lacks match fitness.
