Manchester City vs West Ham Match Prediction: Team News, Probable XI
West Ham United’s squad will be strengthened with the return from the injury of players including Mark Noble, Manuel Lanzini, and Andriy Yarmolenko. However, Vladimír Coufal and Alex Kral will still be unavailable due to their ongoing injury concerns.

West Ham (Probable XI): Areola, Fredericks, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals, Antonio.
Key Players and Matchups
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus will be a player to look out for as in the 2021/22 English Premier League season so far, Jesus has scored 2 goals while assisting on 5 different occasions. This ability of Gabriel Jesus to interlink with teammates is what the West Ham United defence will try to minimise if they are to salvage points from this matchup.
Although both teams are coming into this encounter on the back of some great form, Manchester City are likely to walk away with the three points in this tightly contested encounter in the English Premier League.
