West Ham United and Manchester City meet at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon (local time), as the Citizens set off on the new season to defend their Premier League title.
The Hammers, with former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini at the helm, have made a few decent looking additions to their squad over the summer.
In truth this is probably about as good a time as there is to be facing Man City, with optimism high at the start of a new campaign for West Ham and the possibility that they might just catch Pep Guardiola’s team before they find their best form.
However, City have already collected their first silverware of the new season after beating Liverpool in a penalty shootout to claim the Community Shield last weekend and, having won 32 of their 38 league games last season, it’s apparent that their off days are few and far between.
