West Ham vs Man City: Guardiola team’s plane develops problem during trip to London

Manchester City’s team flight to London was rerouted, after an aircraft fault on the eve of their Premier League clash at West Ham.

Sportsmail reports there an issue with the anti-skid braking system on board and this meant the plane which was carrying the squad and backroom staff, had to divert.

They were due at London City airport, but the technical fault necessitated a longer runway to touch down.

City instead landed safely at the larger Stansted airport, 33 miles away from their planned destination.

London City is seen as the ideal place to land for a match at West Ham, with the airstrip close to the London Stadium on the east side of the city.

Guardiola’s team had to take a slightly longer journey to their hotel by bus as a result of the incident, as they look to register a third consecutive victory for the first time this season.
