West Ham United vs. Manchester City

Boleyn Ground

Kick-off: 5:30 p.m. BST, 12:30 p.m. ET

Manchester City head into Upton Park against West Ham United in search of their first away win of the season. In their three games away from home, City has lost two and tied one.

Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero both have four goals for City this season, and the team lead the league in total goals with 17. 

City are currently ranked fifth in the Premier League, while West Ham find themselves ranked 13th. Captain Vincent Kompany will be out of the line-up for Manuel Pellegrini's side due to a thigh injury.

After defeating their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last week, 3-0, West Ham gained a boost of confidence and look to upset Man City. However, if they are to do so, West Ham will have to produce on the offensive end. The Hammers netted the ball just seven times this season.
