FA CUP WEST HAM v MAN CITY

WEST HAM v MAN CITY

6th January 2017

Sofiane Feghouli is available for West Ham after winning an appeal against his sending off versus Manchester United.

Fellow midfielder Mark Noble may return after suffering a knock at Leicester, but Cheikhou Kouyate and Andre Ayew are away on international duty.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho begins a four-game ban after failing to overturn his red card against Burnley.

Ilkay Gundogan, Vincent Kompany and Leroy Sane are injured and Fernando could miss out because of a knock.

All that said,West Ham face a tough task to see off manchester City in this 3rd round clash.

City though look poor value at 4/6 - so OK Man United landed odds of 4/7 in the league this week - but they were handed some big help from the officials. Don't expect a repeat tonight.

West Ham have been improving and Andy Caroll remains a threat from the bench.

You could be tempted if this had been at Upton Park to go for an upset - but West Ham have struggled in their new home, especially against top sides.

With so many ties this weekend there is better value elsewhere and we will just watch this one.
