West Ham United host Manchester City at the London Stadium in a late evening clash on Sunday.
David Moyes will be hoping to minimise the points he drops to City this season; with City claiming four out of a possible six last season.
Both City and West Ham managers would be looking to begin the new season in grand style although the Cityzens have been backed my many sources to run away with all three points.
Moyes however is not ready to go down without putting up a strong fight.
Ahead of Sunday’s clash, the West Ham manager shared a few thoughts as regards his approach to facing the defending champions.
” We’ve played Manchester City and it’s incredibly tough, but of course, they’re going to come here and have a hard game as well.
“I don’t think you can focus on any one area. You consider all the areas as you’re up against a top-class side who have been for many years and I think we’ll see that once again this season as well. Manchester City have made some changes in personnel this summer, but I don’t think Pep is ever going to change the way that he and his team plays.
“I think what they’ve added is a prolific goalscorer [in Erling Haaland], maybe the most up-and-coming young striker not just in this country, but in the world, so it’ll be interesting. But yet, he is still to come to the Premier League and quite often a lot of the overseas players take a bit of time to settle, so I hope that’s the case on Sunday.”
