Roberto Mancini names an attacking line-up for the trip to Upton Park after Manchester United briefly pulled three points clear with their win earlier in the day

Roberto Mancini has named an attacking line-up for Manchester City's trip to West Ham, with Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko all included.

A return to a back-three appears to have been selected with Vincent Kompany, Kolo Toure and Matija Nastasic all selected.

Andy Carroll starts up front for the Hammers, still in search of his first goal for the club, while a reshuffle in defence sees Joey O'Brien come in for James Tomkins, who is not involved at all.

West Ham: Jaaskelainen; O'Brien, Reid, Collins, McCartney; Diame, Noble, Nolan; Benayoun, Jarvis, Carroll.

Subs: Spiegel, Cole, Maiga, Spence, O'Neill, Chambers, Hall

Man City: Hart; Milner, Kompany, K. Toure, Nastasic, Clichy; Y. Toure, Nasri; Tevez, Dzeko, Balotelli

Subs: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Barry, Sinclair, Garcia, Aguero
