Pep Guardiola will be thankful that the injury sustained by Bernardo Silva on international duty will only keep his star performer this season out for one game with Kevin De Bruyne, the club’s best midfielder, also on the treatment table. It leaves a rare opportunity for either Ilkay Gundogan or Phil Foden to showcase their considerable talents alongside David Silva in midfield when Manchester City face West Ham on Saturday afternoon and, with the Premier League’s hectic schedule hitting full swing, it will be interesting to see how Pep Guardiola keeps his finely balanced, if slightly-numbered, squad ticking over.

12 August 2018 • 1:34pm Auto update On Off 1:34PM 4 mins West Ham working hard in midfield to stop Liverpool getting forward, Keita has had a few nice touches and looks to be fired up. Milner is wearing a pretty hefty bandage around his head after having it split open in a pre-season friendly with Napoli. It's either that, or Klopp has hidden a remote control device in his skull underneath the bandage and is controlling him from the sidelines with a PS4 controller. 1:31PM 2 mins Liverpool, shockingly, go on the attack immediately and a ball from wide right causes a bit of panic in the West Ham six-yard box.

Huddersfield Town begin a season-defining week with a trip to face newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday afternoon. Last weekend's disappointing defeat at home to Everton means David Wagner's side arguably need to collect points from their last three games to keep top-flight survival in their own hands.

Ahead of the clash the Examiner caught up with Dave Wallace, Editor of the King of the Kippax fanzine to get his thoughts on the goings-on at the Etihad as well as his take on Huddersfield Town's season...
