As for West Ham, Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen (both knee) are both doubts after picking up injury problems on international duty, while Mohammed Kudus is also carrying a back problem.

Vincent Kompany’s pre-match comments

“There’s pure individual quality that you have to respect in this league. But that’s the goal for us, to show the ability to be amongst this.

“Obviously they’ve got Antonio who is not available and a few other niggles, but if you look at the midfield with Alvarez, Paqueta on the ball and his quality to pick passes and be a threat, Kudus is a player I’ve known for a long time, it’s just an exciting squad purely from a neutral perspective.

“From a coaching perspective it’s like every game, you do see opportunities for your team to make a game out of it and get a result and that’s what it’s about.”

What are the predicted teams?
