W

est Ham will aim to become the first team since 2016 to defeat title-holders Manchester City in the Carabao Cup as Premier League rivals face off in the fourth round tonight.

A tie with City was the Hammers’ reward for beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in the third round, with Pep Guardiola’s side looking for their fourth League Cup trophy in a row.

Sunday’s win over Tottenham sends David Moyes into shock at London Stadium in great shape, having also beaten Genk and Everton.

City are also on a three-game winning streak and have progressed in their last 21 encounters in the competition.

Kick-off date, time and location

West Ham vs Man City is set to kick off at 7.45pm BST tonight – Wednesday, October 27, 2021 – at London Stadium.

Where to watch West Ham vs. Man City

West Ham vs Man City team news

The Carabao Cup draw will likely see both managers look to their benches, especially after recent action in the league and in Europe.

Vladimir Coufal (groin) remains a doubt for West Ham while Alex Kral has not yet returned to the team after testing positive for Covid-19. Alphonse Areola, Mark Noble, Manuel Lanzini and Issa Diop were among the players of the last round and could return here.

Ferran Torres (foot) and Liam Delap (ankle) are unavailable for City with Raheem Sterling (back) in doubt after missing out on victory at Brighton.

Youngsters such as Cole Palmer and Luke Mbete could be selected if Guardiola seeks to refresh his squad.

Guardiola said: “We are playing on Wednesday so we will see in training [on Monday] and Tuesday and after we will see which is the best decision. A part of [the youngsters] will play, yes.

Prediction West Ham vs Man City

West Ham boss Moyes has relentlessly taken every game seriously, including the Carabao Cup, with good results so far.

It could catch up with the Hammers later, but a young City side could struggle at London Stadium. Alas, even the bench of Guardiola has enough to disturb any team and it could go as far as a penalty shootout.

History and results of face to face (h2h)

City are on an 11-game unbeaten streak against West Ham and demolished them 9-0 overall in the 2013/14 semi-finals.
