Manuel Pellegrini stays strong at West Ham

Jamie Redknapp expecting big things from West Ham attacker Felipe Anderson

United's players have praised the work they have done under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in pre-season and it will be fascinating to see if they do look more coherent that the team that ended last season so badly. They have strengthened over the summer, but they still look a bit light at the back, and the likes of Leicester and Everton have done better business.

City received a huge blow this week as they found out that Leroy Sane will require surgery after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Blues' Community Shield win over Liverpool.

This will be the Irons' second season under Manuel Pellegrini, who will be looking to build on last seasons 10th place finish. "After losing Marko Arnautovic to the Chinese Super League, West Ham have a void to fill in attack", Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail.

City have won their last seven encounters with West Ham, with the Irons' last victory coming in September 2015. West Ham though do have the poor record going against the Citizens.

Sebastian Haller is likely to start up top in a competitive game for the first time for the Hammers. Rodri could also start his first league game for City following an impressive performance last weekend in the Community Shield.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is unworried by his side's lack of activity in the transfer market, saying there is no need to buy for the sake of buying and will expect to open the season with three points against newly promoted Norwich City on Friday night.

So it's no wonder Pep Guardiola chose to unwind with his Manchester City players after the window slammed shut on Thursday evening. City took a clean sheet in more than half of their top-flight road games. That means it's just four losses in 17 in front of their own fans, however one of them was against City - and the 4-0 drubbing was the heaviest of the lot. City won 53% of their away games to nil. He made good results at the end of the season.

The Hammers were beaten in six of their 19 outings at the London Stadium last term, and two of them came in their first two home matches.
