Claudio Bravo won't make his City debut against West Ham this weekend, despite having signed from Barcelona in time to play; Willy Caballero is expected to replace Joe Hart in goal. Kelechi Iheanacho is available again after suffering an injury scare during the 1-0 victory against Steaua Bucharest, and manager Pep Guardiola has no new injuries to contend with.
Regarding Bravo, Guardiola said: “He’s fit but he’s not going to play this weekend. He’s a goalkeeper with a lot of experience in Spain and in the national team.
“He played in important games to create something special for Chile. He’s good in the build-up plays and quick off his line. He’s a good player for us.”
“[We have] no injuries from midweek. Kelechi was almost nothing so it was a scare but he’s fine. Everybody’s fit and ready - we trained with 30 players today.”
City's last home game against West Ham ended in a 2-1 defeat with Kevin De Bruyne netting his first goal for the club in a surprise defeat. Overall City have won 48 of the 102 games played against West Ham, with 17 draws and 37 defeats.
Prediction: City 2 West Ham 1
