Hammers get boost for City clash

West Ham look set to have a full squad available for Sunday’s game against Manchester City with so much at stake for both clubs.

With Manchester City needing a win or draw to get a fresh points advantage over Liverpool following the Blues  victory over Villa last night, there’s no chance of their foot coming off the pedal against us on Sunday.

And we are just as desperate for a win to close on on the slithering outfit which is currently Manchester United as we look to finish in the top six.

Thankfully, we are hearing that Said Benrahma, Craig Dawson and Mikey Antonio are all looking likely to be ok for inclusion in the squad.

With Mark Noble facing his last home game as a Hammers player and the manager presumably desperate to see his time tip United out of the top six by season end, the game could hardly have more importance.

Declan will  likely be set to mark key City player Kevin De Brune in a starting X1 which may look like this:

Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Lanzini, Fornals, Bowen, Antonio.

  1. Cancelo will rip a hole into Cresswell. Pep would of seen his sending off’s and target him with their pacey fullbacks and probably Sterling too.
