Manchester City vs West Ham United, Capital One Cup Semi-Final 1st Leg: Open Thread

West Ham United will take a lot of encouragement from Sunderland’s shocking win against Manchester United last night in the League Cup semi-final. In many ways, today’s Capital One Cup game against Manchester City will be a true test for manager Sam Allardyce to see how he can rally his troops against formidable opposition especially at the Etihad Stadium, which has been a fortress for City.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will want to bounce back after their disappointing 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers from last Saturday’s FA Cup match.

Starting line-ups: 

Manchester City: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany (C), Lescott, Clichy; Nasri, Yaya, Garcia, Silva; Negredo, Dzeko

Subs: Hart, Nastasic, Demichelis, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Milner, Lopes

West Ham United: Adrian, McCartney, Maiga, Taylor, Noble (c), O’Brien, Demel, Diame, Downing, J.Cole, Johnson

Subs: Jarvis, Rat, Collison, Morrison, Diarra, Jaaskelainen, C.Cole
