Man City and West Ham name XIs for Asia Trophy clash

Manchester City have named an experimental line-up for their Asia Trophy game against West Ham on Wednesday.

City’s preparation for the trip to the Far East was beset with problems as their flight to China was cancelled on two separate occasions.

But Pep Guardiola’s side are ready now to face the Hammers with the coach picking a mix of youth and experience for the game.

The headline from the XI is undoubtedly the debut for new signing Rodri.

West Ham have gone with more of an established side, with the likes of Mark Noble, Declan Rice and Felipe Anderson all playing.
