West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has drawn encouragement from Manchester City's defensive frailties as he prepares to welcome the Barclays Premier League champions to Upton Park on Saturday.

Roberto Mancini's City have conceded 22 goals in all competitions so far this season, having let in only 29 league goals in the entire title-winning campaign last year. Allardyce has seen his side pick up 14 points from their opening nine league games, but despite pinpointing City's problems at the back, he is in no doubt that his side need to perform well to get a result.

He said: "I'm surprised (by City's start) but yet again there have been a few changes and a few players he has lost through injury and that disrupts what was his renowned back four for last season."
