Bristol City predicted XI vs West Ham: Double change likely for FA Cup showdown - gallery

Bristol City host West Ham on Tuesday night

Bristol City will be hoping to secure a place in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup when they face West Ham on Tuesday night.

The Robins held the Hammers to a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium a fortnight ago which set up the replay at Ashton Gate tomorrow.

Tommy Conway was on target for City in London, as Liam Manning's side put in a top display against their Premier League counterparts.

However, the match that followed was less impressive, as City were defeated 2-0 at out-of-form Championship side Preston North End on Saturday.

Since, then, City have been busy in the transfer market. Club captain Andi Weimann has joined West Brom on loan until the end of the season, while the Robins confirmed the permanent signing of Baggies loanee Taylor Gardner-Hickman on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

City are also rumoured to be close to signing creative midfielder Scott Twine from Burnley, as they look to add to their misfiring frontline of late.

Manning's side haven't scored in their last three league matches against Birmingham City, Millwall and Preston, with sole striker Conway often left isolated and frustrated.

A plus for City is the number of absentees that the Hammers will have to contend with. Remarkably, West Ham lost four players through injury in the fixture at London Stadium; Lucas Paqueta, Vladimir Coufal, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Jarrod Bowen.

Michail Antonio, Nayef Aguerd and Mohammed Kudus are also missing for the match, which will give City a boost.

Here's how BristolWorld thinks the Robins will set up... Do you agree or do you think Manning will make more changes?
