TEAM NEWS

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola revealed Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte will not be in contention before City’s FA Cup trip to Swansea.

The pair were substituted in Sunday’s Carabao Cup triumph over Chelsea through abductor and hamstring injuries and Guardiola admitted he does not expect the duo to return before the visit to the Liberty Stadium in mid-March.

Gabriel Jesus and John Stones (groin) are also likely to miss Wednesday night’s Premier League clash against West Ham, but there was better news for Benjamin Mendy, who could return to face the Hammers.

West Ham

Manuel Lanzini continues his return from injury, while former City midfielder Samir Nasri has also recovered from a calf injury and is available to face the club with whom he won the Premier League title under Manuel Pellegrini in 2013/14.

Marko Arnautovic, Chicharito and Michail Antonio are also fit, but Fabian Balbuena and Winston Reid will not be available for Wednesday’s fixture.

Last time

The pair last met in November, as City ran out 4-0 victors at the London Stadium, with David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane (2) on the scoresheet.

The Hammers' last visit to the Etihad Stadium saw the Blues triumph 2-1, as goals from Nicolas Otamendi and Silva turned the game on its head, following Angelo Ogbonna's opener.

Opta Stats:

Manchester City have won 10 of their 12 league games against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium (D1, L1).

The Hammers' only league win there came in September 2015, when current boss Manuel Pellegrini was in charge of the home side.

Under Pep Guardiola, City have won all six of their league and cup games against the Hammers, scoring 22 goals and conceding just three.

Goal Scorer:

Sergio Agüero 59' (P)
