Premier League game of the day: Manchester City vs West Ham United — Will the Cityzens fold or fight in response to their banning?

There are probably two ways Manchester City will come out and play after the news that the club will be banned from UEFA competition for two seasons.

The first would be to fold up shop in the Premier League, win a trophy or two, and then see many players move on in the summer.

The second would be to come out and cut a swath of destruction through every tournament the Cityzens play in, run riot, and dominate their way to two or three titles.

My bet would be on the second. Today, they get to play a struggling West Ham United side, and this could get ugly.
