PREM: West Ham v Man City preview

West Ham v Man City preview

West Ham signings Robert Snodgrass and Jose Fonte are in Slaven Bilic's squad for the visit of Manchester City on Wednesday.

Portugal defender Fonte is in line for an immediate debut as a replacement for Angelo Ogbonna, who is out for the season after a knee operation.

City midfielder Fernandinho returns from suspension and Pep Guardiola has welcomed the return of the Brazilian midfielder ahead of the trip to the London Stadium

"He's so important," the City boss said at his pre-match press conference. "We've played a lot of games without him, and I'm happy he's back.
"He's not an aggressive player. He's tough. He's one of the nicest guys I've ever met. We accept the ban and don't complain."
Cheikhou Kouyate is back from the Africa Cup of Nations but will not be considered for selection against City.

Havard Nordtveit misses out with an ankle knock and joins Diafra Sakho (back) and Arthur Masuaku (knee) on the sidelines.
Man City's Top scorer Sergio Aguero is also back in contention after being rested at Crystal Palace at the weekend because of a knock.

Aguero's return alongside Fernandinho means City are only missing long-term injury victim Ilkay Gundogan, who is out for the season after a knee operation.
