West Ham visit Manchester City today as two of the most in-form sides in the Premier League face off.

City have earned 19 straight victories across all competitions, with 13 of those wins recorded in the Premier League. As such, Pep Guardiola’s team are 10 points clear of second-placed United at the top of the Premier League standings.

But they welcome high-flying West Ham to the Etihad Stadium here, with David Moyes’ players having won seven of their last nine outings, defeating London rivals Spurs in their last fixture to go fourth in the top flight again.

West Ham’s unlikely assault on the Champions League spots takes the pressure off them somewhat as they head to Manchester with a free hit against one of the best sides in Europe.

Here’s all you need to know about the Premier League clash.

The match will kick off at 12.30pm GMT this afternoon.

How can I watch it?

The game will air live on BT Sport 1. Subscribers can also stream it live on the BT Sport website and app.

What is the team news?

The injured Nathan Ake will miss out for City again in defence, but Guardiola has no other injury concerns, with Sergio Aguero having come off the bench against Borussia Monchengladbach earlier this week as he returned from his latest fitness setback.

West Ham are still without defenders Arthur Masuaku, Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko, but they are otherwise in good health.

Confirmed line-ups

Man City XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Torres, Aguero

West Ham XI: Randolph, Johnson, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Lingard, Fornals, Antonio

Odds

Man City: 2/9

Draw: 11/2

West Ham: 11/1

Prediction

West Ham are in terrific form and have nothing to lose here, but City are a juggernaut right now and the Hammers are likely to become nails this afternoon. Man City 2-0 West Ham.
