Team news

The Sky Blues were without John Stones, Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias for their win over Wolves in midweek, with the trio expected to be unavailable for the remainder of the season through injury.

Man City paid a reported fee of €68 million for Dias in 2020 and played a pivotal role in their Premier League title in his first season - also being named as the Premier League Player of the Season.

Guardiola could also be without Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte after both came off with injuries against Wolves, and the City boss said in Friday’s press conference he may not know until Sunday whether the pair are fit to play this weekend. Therefore, Rodri and Nathan Ake might have to start at centre-back.

As for the Hammers, David Moyes confirmed Michail Antonio, Craig Dawson will be back for the game, but Said Benrahma is a doubt due to injury. Angelo Ogbonna is unavailable with a long-term problem.
