West Ham vs Man City Live: Why West Ham don’t have a sponsor on their shirts for match against Man City and what it means The Hammers have a new look for their game in Nanjing but there is no sponsor on their kit.
Three of the past five winners of the EFL Cup have gone on to lift the Premier League too – including City under both managers that will be in the dugouts on Wednesday – and while Guardiola insisted that Liverpool are still favourites, the momentum appears to be behind the defending champions.Including Sunday’s shootout win over Chelsea at Wembley, City have now won each of their last six games and 14 of their last 15 across all competitions, whereas Liverpool have drawn four of their last five and have only won three of their nine outings so far in 2019.Guardiola’s concerns over his growing injury list are not without merit, though, and while his squad depth is the envy of almost every other manager in world football, the one player he arguably could not afford to lose was Fernandinho, who is expected to miss at least four games.

Hello and welcome to Nanjing where West Ham United take on Manchester City in the Premier League Asia Trophy semi-final.
The Hammers’ pre-season clash is a tantalising warm-up for the first Premier League game of the season, when they host the champions at London Stadium.
But first, Manuel Pellegrini and his side will want to lay down a marker against Pep Guardiola’s men at the Olympic Sports Centre Stadium.
West Ham have taken a 23-man squad for Wednesday’s game, however new signing Pablo Fornals, Fabian Balbuena and Arthur Masuaku all miss out as they are still on a post-international duty break.
The last time the sides met, City dominated but only edged the Premier League meeting between the two sides at the Etihad Stadium in February, with the game being settled by Sergio Aguero’s 59th-minute penalty.
Will the Irons get their revenge in the far east?
