Bowen And Soucek To Start, Noble Dropped: West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face City

West Ham manager David Moyes will have been extremely unhappy with the way they gave away a two-goal lead versus Brighton last time out.

It was a big game in their bid for Premier League survival and they now face a tough run of games which starts at the Etihad against City tomorrow.

Moyes could replace Issa Diop with Fabian Balbuena in defence, despite the Frenchman scoring against the Seagulls.



In midfield, the Hammers boss may well have a decision to make in order to include Jarrod Bowen. He could either replace Robert Snodgrass (who scored twice against Brighton) or move the Scot centrally in order to accommodate the new £22m signing.

If he does that, one of Declan Rice, Mark Noble and Tomas Soucek are set to miss out. After a poor showing at the London Stadium last weekend, the skipper could be dropped to the bench, but that would be a big call in such a difficult away game.

Sebastien Haller will likely keep his place as the focal point of the attack with Michail Antonio almost certain to start following a good return versus the Seagulls.

West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Manchester City:

Fabianski, Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Snodgrass, Antonio, Haller
