The Manchester City boss has decided to stick with Gabriel Jesus and Willy Caballero after they helped deliver a win and a clean sheet in the FA Cup

Pep Guardiola has left Claudio Bravo and Sergio Aguero on the bench for Manchester City's visit to West Ham in the Premier League.

Willy Caballero gets the start in goal for City, with Gabriel Jesus continuing in attack in between wingers Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.

Hazard: United & Arsenal our main rivals

Guardiola opted to test the youthful front three in the FA Cup tie against Crystal Palace and both Sterling and Sane scored in a 3-0 victory.

Yaya Toure netted the third goal in that victory and he keeps his position at the base of midfield, with David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne occupying the two spots ahead of him.

John Stones comes back in at centre-back, with Vincent Kompany restricted to a place on the bench despite getting through 90 minutes unscathed at Selhurst Park.

West Ham hand a debut to new signing Jose Fonte, who partners Winston Reid at centre-back, but Robert Snodgrass is only among the substitutes and will have to wait to make his bow.

Transfer window winners & losers

Andy Carroll, who has netted three goals in his last two matches, will lead Slaven Bilic's attack once again with Sofiane Feghouli joining Michail Antonio on the wings following the departure of Dimitri Payet.

West Ham: Randolph; Byram, Fonte, Reid, Cresswell; Obiang, Noble, Lanzini; Antonio, Carroll, Feghouli.

Subs: Adrian, Snodgrass, Collins, Fletcher, Calleri, Fernandes, Quina.

Manchester City: Caballero; Sagna, Stones, Otamendi, Kolarov; De Bruyne, Toure, Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Sane.
