As Manchester City prepare to lock horns against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday, we have tried to call their predicted lineup.
With Pep Guardiola set to make a return to the sidelines, we expect him to make two changes to his side that beat Fulham 5-1 before the international break.
Manchester City predicted lineup vs West Ham United
In goal, it comes as no surprise that Ederson Moraes starts in our Manchester City predicted lineup against West Ham.
At right-back, Kyle Walker is expected to keep his place, especially after shining for England against Ukraine and Scotland in his latest outings.
Ruben Dias has started in every game for Manchester City so far this season and we expect the same to be the case in our predicted lineup.
Nathan Ake also looks set to retain his place but at centre-back instead of in the makeshift left-back role he was deployed in against Fulham.

At left-back, Josko Gvardiol, branded as ‘phenomenal’ by Mateo Kovacic could return to the side at left-back, with Manuel Akanji dropping out of the back four.
In midfield, Rodri looks set to start once again against West Ham.
With Croatian newspaper Jutarnji list reporting that Mateo Kovacic could be sidelined with an ongoing back injury for about ten days, Bernardo Silva could slot in as his replacement alongside Rodri.
On paper, at least, Phil Foden will keep his place at right-wing after a bright start to the season.
At left-wing, where Jeremy Doku eventually moved out to during his promising debut against Fulham is where he could start from the outset against David Moyes’ side.
Up front, Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland are expected to keep their places in the side against West Ham.
