West Ham vs Man City Carabao Cup prediction
Manchester City haven't been eliminated from this competition since 2016 having won 4 on the bounce. West Ham United on the other hand have never won this competition, but if they can knock out both sides of Manchester in consecutive rounds the Hammers faithful will start to believe.
Vladimír Coufal will likely miss again for West Ham with a groin injury but Ben Johnson has been super in his absence. City are close to full strength but are likely to utilise some of their younger options as they did in the third round.
City's £100 million man, Jack Grealish, will look to improve if he gets game time. With just 2 goals from 11 appearances to date, he will be aiming for a bigger contribution soon. But Manchester City don't look like surrendering their stranglehold on this competition and we expect that to continue.
