Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City, one point behind league toppers Arsenal in third place, will be desperate to avenge their shock 2-1 defeat to West Ham at the Etihad back in September. But while West Ham manager Bilic thinks Citizens have the best team in the Premier League, the Croat is very much hopeful the Hammers can continue their impressive run against the established Giants of EPL this season by snatching another scalp on tonight.

West Ham were unbeaten in eight league fixtures before losing against Newcastle United last weekend and are currently sixth in the points table, while Manchester City defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 in a clinical fashion at home.

West Ham now have a difficult task of trying to snatch a result against City at the Boleyn Ground in the hope of continuing their decent form although they can boast about having been able to beat Manuel Pellegrini’s team earlier in the season as they head into their toughest fixture with the Citizens.

Here is the starting Line-up for West Ham and Manchester City.

West Ham Starting lineup: Adrian, Jenkinson, Reid, Collins, Cresswell, Kouyate, Song, Antonio, Noble (c), Payet, Valencia     

West Ham Substitutes: Randolph, Obiang, Moses, Ogbonna, Byram, Jelavic, Oxford

Manchester City Starting lineup: Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Demichelis, Clichy, Toure, Delph, Silva, De Bruyne, Navas, Aguero               

Manchester City Substitutes: Caballero, Angelino, Zabaleta, Fernandinho, Fernando, Sterling, Iheanacho
