Ahead of Saturday's Premier League contest between West Ham United and Manchester City, Sports Mole looks at how the defending champions could line up in East London.

Manchester City head into their Premier League opener with West Ham United on Saturday afternoon having already claimed one piece of silverware this season.

Despite a second-half fightback from rivals Liverpool, City eventually prevailed in a penalty shootout to win the Community Shield.

However, while Pep Guardiola would have been pleased with his side's performance, the Spaniard has concerns regarding the fitness of a number of his first-team squad.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how City could line up when they take to the pitch at the London Stadium this weekend.




Out: Benjamin Mendy (knee), Leroy Sane (knee),
Doubtful: Aymeric Laporte (knock), Fernandinho (lack of fitness)

City revealed on Thursday that Leroy Sane would be absent for a lengthy period after suffering a serious knee injury in the game against Liverpool.

Benjamin Mendy also remains out of contention, but Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho are closing in on a return after missing the Community Shield.

Forward Gabriel Jesus got almost a full game under his belt at Wembley Stadium, something which could be enough to keep Sergio Aguero among the replacements.

The remainder of the team could stay the same as last weekend, providing that Guardiola does not decide to recall Ilkay Gundogan for David Silva in the middle of the pitch.

Joao Cancelo is unlikely to be considered for a start, although do not be surprised to see the versatile right-sided player feature on the substitutes' bench.
