What they’re saying before West Ham – Man City
Aaron Cresswell on building on Sunday’s comeback at Spurs: “To come back from 3-0 down and get the draw in the manner we did was fantastic. The game was all theirs for the first 15 minutes, but you hang in with it and I thought we did very well. We never gave up and got our rewards at the end. We’re all together and really tight-knit and that’s what you need as a team if you want to progress. It’s still early doors only five games in, but that’s what we’ve got to do throughout the season. It was just a shame there were no fans in on Sunday night, because what a way it was to end the game.”
Man City’s Pep Guardiola on the Ferran Torres-Phil Foden link-up v Porto: “It was an incredible combination from Phil and Ferran. Ferran has an incredible sense of goal. The most satisfying thing was the way they came in. Always the people who come from the bench are so important. We did a perfect performance. It was an incredible performance from us against a really tough team. It is nice to win games suffering against a really good team. I am so pleased with the last two games. Short recovery and then we go to London.”

Prediction for West Ham – Man City
The Irons are scrappers and deeper than they’ve been in years. They’ll try to jump on City early but Guardiola’s men are trending in a positive direction and should be able to find the difference. 2-0 City.
