- Premier League table – as it stands
West Ham host Manchester City in north London in midday Premier League action as Pep Guardiola’s men look for a sixth straight win across all competitions at the London Stadium.
City currently lie in the bottom half of the table but could be boosted by the return of Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne after they took part in a light training session on Thursday.
David Moyes’ men meanwhile will look to take more points following their three-goal comeback against Tottenham last weekend, and will have Michail Antonio fit despite being spotted with ice on his leg after the drama at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Not that David Moyes understands why.
City have won all previous meetings between these two sides in the Premier League era, but there are certainly reasons to be optimistic for the Hammers this time around.
City have yet to fully click despite wins against Arsenal and Porto, scoring four goals altogether and conceding just one.
But the Hammers lie above City in the table for the first time since March 2009, and having created history last weekend by becoming the first side to snatch something having been trailing 3-0 in the 81st minute, will be in buoyant mood.
Pep Guardiola was involved in rather angry scenes on the touchline against Porto, but pre-match today, BT Sport commentatot Darren Fletcher has revealed the pleasant side of the City boss.
Having not seen Glenn Hoddle for a while, he checked up on co-commentator Glenn Hoddle and his health a year on from his heart attack, and the former Spurs manager thanked him for the gesture, describing it as ‘a bit of class’.
The Hammers also unchanged from last week’s draw at Spurs.
A return to the matchday squad for Kevin De Bruyne after his recent injury issues, but no Aymeric Laporte or Nathan Ake for the visitors.
After Manchester City’s first round of European action this season it is back to domestic matters for Pep Guardiola’s men.
And given their recent record at West Ham, they could not have asked for a better fixture, having won all five of their previous games across all competitions at the London Stadium.
But David Moyes’ men have been rejuvenated in recent weeks and after their dramatic draw against Tottenham last weekend will be hoping to go one step further against another one of the Big Six today.
