Manchester City XI vs West Ham: Laporte starts - Starting lineup, team news and injury latest for game today

By Marc Mayo

Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho are both in the line-up for Manchester City’s trip to West Ham today.

Pep Guardiola was facing having to field a defence devoid of four major players and a key back-up in veteran midfielder Fernandinho after both picked up knocks in midweek.

Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker and John Stones were already ruled out for the season before Laporte injured his knee in an awkward collision with Ruben Jimenez during Wednesday’s win over Wolves. Fernandinho was then forced off with a muscle problem.

“They are in treatment and we'll see tomorrow who is available. Until the day of the game we will not be able to decide the availability of the players,” said Guardiola on Friday.

City are also boosted by the return of Nathan Ake, who came off the bench at Molineux, but he is only among the substitutes for the game in east London.

Kevin De Bruyne starred up front with four goals of the 5-1 win over Wolves but is back in midfield today with Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus starting alongside Riyad Mahrez.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Cancelo, Fernandinho, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, De Bruyne, Bernardo; Mahrez, Jesus, Grealish.

Subs: Steffen, Ake, Sterling, Gundogan, Foden, Egan-Riley, Mbete, Palmer, Lavia.
