Premier League: How to watch West Ham vs Manchester City live on August 10

August 9, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
BT Sport 1 and NBCSN will air the contest live in UK and US respectively as Manchester City begins its quest to defend the Premier League title for the third season in sucession.

What is the form of West Ham as compared to Manchester City?

After finishing last season in 10th position, West Ham will aim to push up a bit further with the 2019/2020 Premier League season well underway. The Hammers endured a topsy-turvy ride in their preseason preparations but should be ready for the big tests in the coming weeks.

Manuel Pellegrini's side featured in six friendlies in the offseason and managed to record three wins and losses apiece. While there were gaping frailties to fix, there were also promising signs. The most notable is, perhaps, one surrounding the club's newest acquisitions.

The likes of Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller all ended their spell with their respective clubs on top form before completing their switch to London and, at the moment, a lot of indications point at the pair replicating those stellar performances for West Ham.

That is not to say that the ride will be easy, especially coming up against last season's champions Manchester City in the curtain-raiser. The Citizens have already made a huge statement of intent by beating rivals Liverpool to clinch the Community Shield last Sunday.

Guardiola's men enter the new season with an unbeaten run in the Premier League which stretches as far back as February 2019. The preseason was no different albeit the Etihad outfit registering four wins and a draw.

Talking of things being the same, Manchester City approaches the new season with an admirable squad depth following the signings of Atletico Madrid's Rodri as well as Juventus' Joao Cancelo. A tough test awaits at the London Stadium on Saturday but it should not be anything the men in Sky Blue cannot handle.

What is the head-to-head record of West Ham vs Manchester City?

The upcoming clash between West Ham and Manchester City will be the 111th in history. The latter has dominated the meetings, recording 56 wins as compared to the Hammers' 37. There have been 17 draws between the pair.

A few weeks ago, the two teams went head-to-head in the Premier League Asian Trophy. The Citizens, once again, emerged as victors with a 4-1 scoreline. The last time the two sides met in the English Premier League, the Etihad outfit took the maximum points via a 1-0 outcome at home.

Team news: Who is injured or suspended for West Ham vs Manchester City?

The Premier League holders will be without Leroy Sane who picked up a serious knee injury in the Community Shield victory over Liverpool. The winger is expected to endure a lengthy spell on the sidelines with tests revealing that the injury was worse than initially feared. Also, Benjamin Mendy is ruled out with a knee problem. New summer signing Joao Cancelo should be in contention after completing his move from Juventus on Wednesday.

For West Ham, Lukasz Fabianski should be in-between the sticks after missing the last two pre-season friendlies. Veteran midfielder and skipper Mark Noble is ruled out with an injury.

In contrast, new boys Pablo Fornals and Sebastian Haller are expected to feature in the starting lineup following their big-money transfers.

Predicted lineups for West Ham vs Manchester City 

West Ham predicted XI: Fabianski; Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell; Rice, Wilshere; Anderson, Fornals, Lanzini; Haller.

Manchester City predicted XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, De Bruyne, David Silva; Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Aguero.
