David Moyes’ side fell to a disappointing loss away at Wolves last weekend but did manage to turn things around right away with a convincing win away at Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
City, meanwhile, came from behind to beat Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday and could put pressure on Chelsea ahead of their meeting with Manchester United later on today.
Two of the Premier League’s form teams, the game is a rematch of the Carabao Cup third-round meeting that saw West Ham triumph on penalties in October, so the away side head into the fixture with confidence, albeit any trip to the Etihad Stadium is always daunting.
Date, kick-off time and venue
