Projected Manchester City Lineup Against West Ham: Ederson Absent and De Bruyne Selection Finalized

Predicted Man City Line-Up Against West Ham as Ederson Misses Out and De Bruyne’s Status Uncertain

Manchester City are preparing for their last Premier League match of the season, aiming to secure their fourth consecutive title.

Pep Guardiola’s squad is expected to be favorites for their Sunday afternoon clash against West Ham United, a victory that would snatch the championship away from Arsenal.

After their 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night, City are now positioned to clinch the title at home.

However, they will have to manage without Ederson, who is sidelined for this weekend and the FA Cup final due to an injury picked up during the Tottenham match. Stefan Ortega will step in as goalkeeper, buoyed by his crucial save against Son Heung-min.

Rodri and Mateo Kovacic are set to anchor the midfield, but Kevin De Bruyne’s participation is in doubt after he sustained an ankle injury against Tottenham. Guardiola commented on Friday, “We will see today. Yesterday we were off, and today we’ve got training and I will see.” If De Bruyne is unavailable, Julian Alvarez might get the nod to start.

Up front, Bernardo Silva, Erling Haaland, and Phil Foden are likely to lead the attack, with Jeremy Doku and Jack Grealish ready to come off the bench if needed.

City’s predicted line-up against West Ham: Ortega; Walker, Akanji, Dias, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovacic, Alvarez; Bernardo, Haaland, Foden.
