The West Ham vs Man City live stream will see the Hammers look to maintain their undefeated start to the season when they welcome Premier League champions Manchester City to the London Stadium — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
It’s been an impressive start to the campaign for both sides, with West Ham gaining 10 points from their opening four games and Man City taking the maximum 12 to sit top of the league. While many would have predicted Pep’s side would continue where they left off last season, few would have picked the Hammers to enjoy such a good early run.
Despite the loss of Declan Rice, there is a sense of excitement at the East London club. New signings Edson Álvarez and James Ward-Prowse have hit the ground running, while Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen look in excellent form. Manager David Moyes has also successfully implemented a counter-attacking style that worked to perfection against Brighton and Chelsea. Could it suckerpunch City too?
The entire West Ham defensive unit will be put under intense pressure when they face a Manchester City team with threats across the field. The reigning champions stuttered at times in wins over Sheffield United and Newcastle but in Erling Haaland, Phill Foden and Julián Álvarez they possess a constant goal threat.
West Ham XI: Areola, Coufal, Zouma (C), Aguerd, Emerson, Alvarez, Ward Prowse, Soucek, Paqueta, Bowen, Antonio
Subs: Fabianki, Cresswell, Fornals, Kudus, Ings, Ogbonna, Kehrer, Benrahma, Mavropanos
Man City XI: Ederson, Walker (C), Akanji, Dias, Gvardiol, Rodrigo, Bernardo, Doku, Foden, Alvarez, Haaland
Subs: Ortega Moreno, Carson, Phillips, Ake, Gomez, Nunes, Bobb, Lewis
