The Hammers visit Filbert Way for Saturday’s evening kick-off, as Claude Puel’s men attempt to build on their four top-flight victories this term.

City’s wins over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United see them sit 11th in the table after nine games. 

West Ham, meanwhile, are three places lower, but Maguire knows both sides will be targeting a much higher finish this term.

Discussing the London outfit, Maguire said: "We’re probably two teams who had the same ambitions at the start of the season.

“I think we’re probably both looking for comfortable top half finishes, thinking can we push and fight for the seventh place.

“It’s going to be an interesting game, one that’s hard to predict and probably the best team who perform on the day will go out and get the three points and we feel like we’ve got enough in our team to go out and get the three points on Saturday.”

Without doubt one of West Ham’s most creative players, Marko Arnautović. The Austria international has scored four times in nine Premier League games this season, including in the back-to-back triumphs over Everton and Manchester United.

Maguire said of the Hammers attacker: “I think you can see with how they play and I think all the chances they create mainly fall to him.

“He’s a top player, he’s been in the Premier League numerous years now, he was a top player for Stoke and he’s starting to show his true colours at West Ham now as well.

“He’s a top player for them and someone we’ve got to be wary of, but there are really good players in other areas too.”
