Manchester City vs West Ham - City hoping trio will win fitness race

Manchester City are hoping Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy will return to contention for the home game against West Ham.

Sane has not featured this season since suffering a serious knee injury in the Community Shield in August, Laporte has played just once since recovering from his long-term knee injury and Mendy has missed the last four games due to an unspecified knock.

Raheem Sterling is sidelined with a hamstring problem and Oleksandr Zinchenko is suspended after his dismissal in the recent defeat at Tottenham.

West Ham will be hopeful the extra rest due to the rescheduling of the game will mean Felipe Anderson is fit to start.

The playmaker is back in training following a back issue and could return to the starting line-up.

There is less chance of Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh) being involved while Jarrod Bowen is still awaiting his Hammers debut following his January move from Hull.

Manchester City provisional squad: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy, Laporte, Stones, Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Foden, D Silva, B Silva, Aguero, Mahrez, Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Bravo, Cancelo

West Ham provisional Squad: Fabianski, Cresswell, Diop, Ogbonna, Fredericks, Rice, Noble, Soucek, Bowen, Antonio, Haller, Randolph, Balbuena, Masuaku, Zabaleta, Snodgrass, Anderson, Fornals, Lanzini, Ajeti.
