Man City XI vs. West Ham: Probable lineup, updated injury report, and team news

Manchester City will travel to West Ham on Saturday in the Premier League, but they already have three injury concerns.


There are expectations that Jack Grealish will play in the capital derby after withdrawing from England duties with a minor thigh injury.


John Stones missed the international break as well, but he is getting closer to making his injury comeback.

Mateo Kovacic was apparently forced to undergo a scan for a recent ailment, although it was indicated that his absence from Monday’s victory over Armenia was purely preventative. Mateo Kovacic missed Croatia’s matches as a result.


The City midfielder admitted prior to the encounter with Latvia that “I had some problems, but now I’m ready.”


But I’ll make an effort to give my last workout my all; the coach will make the final call. The player who is most prepared will take the field. Playing every three days is difficult, but there isn’t any other option, so it must be done.

Pictures from Thursday’s practice, however, revealed that the trio was all missing as West Ham preparations intensified.


Pep Guardiola, the manager of City, will have to choose between Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, and new addition Jeremy Doku on the wings, as well as Grealish should he be healthy after undergoing back surgery on Wednesday.


Due to Kevin De Bruyne’s ongoing absence, Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland will continue to play up front.


Predicted Walker, Akanji, Dias, Ake, Rodri, Silva, Doku, Alvarez, Foden, and Haaland make up Man City’s starting lineup.


De Bruyne was hurt.


Stones, Grealish, and Kovacic are in doubt.


Date and time: Saturday, September 16, 3pm BST.


Location: London Stadium
