Manchester City will look to continue their imperious form when they welcome high flying West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday.

City have made history this season by becoming the first English top flight team to win 19 games in a row in all competitions – the latest of which coming on Wednesday night in the Champions League.

The 0-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach puts Pep Guardiola’s side in pole position for safe passage through to the quarter finals.

With defender Nathan Ake the only injury absentee and the club ten points clear at the summit, Manchester City’s formidable form shows no sign of slowing.

Saturday’s opponents West Ham United know they need something special if they are to pull off a result – a win for the Hammers will be a shock despite them residing in the Champions League places.

West Ham are enjoying their best top flight season since 1985-86 and have a 2 point cushion in 4th, with Chelsea their closest challengers.

Considering relegation was very much on the cards last season, David Moyes has masterminded a remarkable campaign.

The Hammers travel to the Etihad without Andriy Yarmolenko and Angelo Ogbonna, but long term injury absentee Arthur Masuaku is edging closer to a recovery – but Saturday’s game comes too soon.

Man City v West Ham is a 12.30pm kick off on Saturday 27th February.
