Team news

Erling Haaland is expected to start his first Premier League game and will be out to impress after his poor performance against Liverpool last weekend.

Julian Alvarez may also feature for Guardiola's men after scoring in the loss to the Reds, but most likely from the bench.

And Jack Grealish is also set to play from the off in London.

West Ham could hand a full debut to new striker Gianluca Scamacca, but it remains to be seen whether he will partner Michail Antonio, or replace him in the XI altogether.

    Guardiola defends Haaland after debut criticism

    Erling Haaland will be hoping to silence critics after a tough debut against Liverpool saw him hit the bar in a frustrating performance.

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was quick to defend his new signing, saying: "Be careful what you say because he’s going to deny all the opinions and score goals."

    Good afternoon from North-East London

    Welcome to this afternoon’s tea-time tussle between West Ham and Manchester City in the Premier League.

    Last season’s champions will be hoping to pick up where they left off against David Moyes’ side. The additions of Kalvin Phillips and Erling Haaland should help them on their bid to secure a third successive title.

    The Hammers have never beaten today’s visitors at their new ground. However, they came very close last season where the points were shared in an enthralling 2-2 draw. Jarrod Bowen got both goals that day.

    The visitors will be hoping to take advantage of rivals Liverpool dropping points to Fulham yesterday. To do so, they will need to be careful not to repeat the early mistakes of last season, losing to Tottenham in their opening game.

    Kick-off is scheduled for 4:30 at the London Stadium and we will bring you team news shortly.
