Manchester City expected XI: Pep Guardiola to pick this 4-3

Pep Guardiola

A classic David vs Goliath encounter awaits as Gameweek 15 of the Premier League comes to an end on Sunday. City host relegation-threatened West Ham United in the league on Sunday.

They have already broken the PL record for the best start to a campaign and are now busy extending the record by producing wins with class apart showings.They have won 19 successive games in all competitions scoring 59 in the process.

Wednesday night certainly wasn't like that, though, with City only managing to rescue a 2-1 victory against Southampton thanks to a brilliant goal from Raheem Sterling in the final seconds of stoppage time.

"We can not deny I am so satisfied with the previous results, but there are more than 70 points to play", he said.

Guardiola will be without long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy and John Stones through injury, whilst Leroy Sane is doubtful. They have experience and a manager with the experience to handle these situations.

The Blues' only dropped points in their last six league games came at Liverpool last Saturday, while Swansea suffered a 10th loss of the season.

"Nine games in one month is a lot".

Guardiola's side take on an out-of-form West Ham United this weekend at the Etihad stadium.

"When you break it down, go back to basics, and explain all of these things to these great players, it gives them another level..."

If Reid fails to prove his fitness, Declan Rice could be called up to fill in at the heart of defence, with Cheikhou Kouyate a makeshift option as well.

Usually, as the players disappear back down the tunnel at full-time that's it.

'But we have to realise if Andy Carroll plays it's complicated.

With Joe Hart ineligible to play against his parent club Adrian will be given the nod to start the match.

CITY are ready to smash the £300,000-a-week barrier to make Raheem Sterling the Premier League's top-paid player. The Scotsman has never lost five top-flight games in a row against a single club. What Guardiola understood very early is that the modern-day game relies heavily on the performance of the full-backs so he's made sure City have good depth in those areas.

Fourteen games gone, Manchester City are already 30 points ahead of the Hammers before the game begins.

Time to raise your hand and step up, Mark. 'That is why it's better to be calm and prepare for West Ham as well as possible'. I was asked many times about that when we had good results.

"I can't deny we're in better form than West Ham and have had better results, but tomorrow we start again".

The German was forced to miss the midweek win over Southampton through illness.
