16/09/2023 5:00 pm
In-form West Ham United will be looking to maintain their early momentum on Saturday at London Stadium when they host champions Manchester City, who boast a 100% winning start in the beginning stages of the Premier League season.
The hosts are currently sitting in fourth place in the top-flight standings on 10 points, two points adrift of first-placed Manchester City through four matches.
The Hammers also won their last Premier League match 2-1 at Kenilworth Road against Luton Town, extending their unbeaten season start to four games.
West Ham won their only previous Premier League match at the London Stadium this season, and they find themselves on a three-game home winning streak dating back to May 7 against Manchester United.
Manchester City’s last league match saw them claim a 5-1 victory over Fulham at Etihad Stadium, their fourth successive win.
That result has seen them sit at the top of the Premier League standings on 12 points, two points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur through four matches.
The Citizens were victorious in both of their previous league matches away from Etihad Stadium this season, beating Burnley 3-0 on August 11 and most recently Sheffield United on August 27.
When the two sides last met in Premier League action, Manchester City claimed a 3-0 victory at Etihad Stadium last season, with Nathan Ake, Erling Haaland and Phil Foden getting on the scoresheet.

West Ham Team News
West Ham’s Vladimir Coufal is doubtful after sustaining a minor injury on international duty, so either Ben Johnson or Thilo Kehrer could be handed a start at right-back.
Summer signing Konstantinos Mavropanos could be in a position to make his debut at centre-back, although Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd are expected to retain their places on Saturday.
