How to watch West Ham vs Man City – TV channel, live stream, kick-off time and early team news

Ilkay Gundogan's heroic brace against Aston Villa on the final day snatched back-to-back titles for Pep Guardiola's side for the second time. It was also City's fourth triumph in five seasons – signalling a period of dominance.

Since that day, the Blues have completely replenished the squad with some exciting talent. Erling Haaland's transfer from Borussia Dortmund is perhaps the biggest transfer in Premier League history, but the arrival of Julian Alvarez is also drumming up the same levels of excitement.

To facilitate the incomings, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko have all moved on. City are still in the market for a specialist left-back after missing out on Marc Cucurella.

City completed their pre-season preparations with a Community Shield clash against Liverpool last Saturday. Despite City showing moments of promise, Jurgen Klopp's side were clinical in front of goal and came away from the King Power Stadium with a 3-1 victory

Guardiola's side will now be focused on Sunday's match at the London Stadium, scheduled to get underway at 4:30pm.

The crucial clash will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League.

If you are not a Sky Sports customer, you can watch the game by purchasing a NOW TV pass. You can buy one for a 24-hour period, meaning you can buy one for City's season opener, as opposed to subscribing for a full month.

The Manchester Evening News will also have unrivalled coverage.

Guardiola's only notable absentee is Aymeric Laporte, who was forced to have post-season knee surgery and will be out of action until at least September.
