City's trip to Upton Park represents the acid test of Eriksson's popularity in England.
Although he has received a warm and enthusiastic welcome from City supporters, there remains a lingering fear he could become the target of abuse from other clubs' followers, who were less than impressed by his stint as England manager.
But Eriksson does not believe it will be significantly worse than any other opposing manager would get.
"I have never done anything wrong against West Ham, so I don't expect any different kind of treatment," said the Swede.
"Of course the away manager is not going to be as popular as the home one. I expect that, but nothing else."
