Key Players:

Westham Utd

Mark Noble:
He’s Mr Westham and we need he’s leadership on and off the pitch this will spur he’s team mates on and excite the fans (he’s legs are still going strong ) we will win as a team and lose as a team.

Manual Lanzini:
The last 20 minutes against Arsenal is the reason why he should start an exceptional talent with lots of trickery and a site for goal a very direct player with a positive mentality and great attitude a great example for the youth to watch.

Marko Arnautovic:
He needs to be on the score sheet this time time around hopefully he will have another forward along side him to assist him and create something magic.

Javier Hernandez:
He seems to be out of favour for David moyes but for me he needs to start he’s has been the forward we have always wanted as a fan we haven’t seem a great forwed since Dean Aston so hopefully he will get a start and prove he’s manager wrong.

Andy Carroll:
Due to hes injuries we have not seen him much for what he costs but he can be a handful at times and can score vital goals as we know so maybe a last 20 minute run out and he could do a smash and grab win.


Manchester City

David Silva:
Underrated player gets involved with every move he’s the engine of the team and also scores goals he’s the one to watch out for.

Leroy Sane:
The talented player is a work horse never gives up always looking for something to happen and he’s pace is electric .

Raheem Sterling:
Always taking players on there is no stopping this player if on form great technique and a sight for goal.

Kevin De Bruyne;
This young gifted player is another confidant and technically good player be could be one of the greats of all time good abillity to pass the ball and is really comfortable and has a no fear factor he is another player the youth need to watch a great level head player with alot to improve in he’s prime.



Form Guide:

Westham last six
1-4 v Arsenal L Away
1-1 v Stoke D Home
1-1 v Chelsea D Away
0-3 v so’ton W Home
3-0 v Burnley L Home
1-4 v Swansea L Away

Manchester City last six
5.0 v Swansea H Win
3-1v Tottenham A Win
1-2 v Liberpool L Home
2-3 v Man Utd L Away
3-1 v Everton W Away
3-0 v Liverpool L Away



What will be an entertaining game if we come out and try to play a like for like formation. This will cancel out each player and stop them from player if we give city time and space then expect a rout we need 11 v 11 men v men one man each. i might sound old school but back to basics will always work and each player will take to task accordingly. If David Moyes comes out all defensive you might as well stay in the concourse have a beer and watch on the tv and listen to the boo’s ring around from the once dream move to empty promises and deceit.
