Leroy Sane is available again after missing the midweek victory against Southampton with a virus, whilst Benjamin Mendy and John Stones remain long-term absentees. Vincent Kompany, Sane and Fernandinho are all one booking away from a suspension that would rule them out of the Manchester derby next weekend, so manager Pep Guardiola is expected to make some changes on Sunday.
“We will see tomorrow,” he said. “Tomorrow we train and we will see what we can do.
“Vincent was two months injured, Fernandinho has played a lot of minutes - but the most important thing is West Ham.
“I am worried about the bookings, United is an important game, but West Ham is as well.
“Last game we didn't play David [Silva] from the beginning, I rotated. Nine games in one month...every player has to play.”
City's last home game against the Hammers ended in a 3-1 win, with Raheem Sterling (2) and Fernandinho netting for the Blues. Overall City have won 51 of the 105 games played against West Ham, with 17 draws and 37 defeats.
Predicted line-up: Ederson, Danilo, Mangala, Otamendi, Delph, Gundogan, D Silva, De Bruyne, B Silva, Sterling, Jesus
Score prediction: City 4 West Ham 0
