Manchester City vs West Ham LIVE!

Manchester City won an unprecedented fourth straight English top flight title with a 3-1 win over West Ham United on Sunday to pip rivals Arsenal on the final day of a thrilling Premier League season as the fans turned the pitch into a sea of blue.

Two glorious early goals from league player of the season Phil Foden created a party atmosphere in the sunshine at the Etihad Stadium, before a stunning bicycle kick from Mohammed Kudus before halftime brought West Ham briefly into the game.

But Rodri sealed the victory with a low 59th minute shot from outside the area, giving Pep Guardiola's side a phenomenal sixth title in seven years. Fans danced in their seats, belting out: "Champions again!" and "Are you watching Arsenal?"

In one of the closest title races in Premier League history, Arsenal could have taken the championship had City dropped points. But the Londoners' 2-1 win in their game against Everton was in vain, leaving them two points behind. City have the chance of winning the double as they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final next Saturday.

Foden gets the biggest cheer yet. A sixth title for him already.

Guardiola greets him with a big hug and lots of rubbing of the head.

18:45 , Alex Young

Almost time for the trophy lift.


18:42 , Alex Young

Pep has his medal, now the players.

18:37 , Alex Young

Here comes the trophy, carried by Paul Dickov!

18:33 , Alex Young

The fans are back in the stands and waiting for the trophy lift.

Erling Haaland wins Golden Boot

18:22 , Alex Young

He drew a blank today - and could have scored at least a couple - but Erling Haaland has won the Golden Boot again.

Here are the full final standings.

Phil Foden speaking to Sky Sports

18:15 , Alex Young

"It is so hard to put into words what we've done today. No team has ever done it [won four in a row], we have put ourselves into the history books.

“You see what it means to the fans and to us players working all year for this moment. A special moment to share it with the fans."


18:07 , Alex Young

It’s being prepared.

18:06 , Alex Young

Man City fans flood the Etihad Stadium pitch at full-time and refuse to leave the field, with stewards having to form a cordon around the dugouts. Job done for Pep and Co, who etch another historic chapter into English football's annals.

18:02 , Alex Young

...and there’s a pitch invasion. Thousands and thousands onto the pitch as the players are forced to the touchline.


18:01 , Alex Young

96min: That’s it! Four in a row for the first time in Premier League history!

17:58 , Alex Young

94min: The Ole’s are coming out from the City fans. Long overdue.

17:55 , Alex Young

91min: Foden replaced by Kovacic in the first of five added minutes.


17:52 , Alex Young

88min: Soucek think he has pulled another back for West Ham but this isn’t volleyball and it’s ruled out for offside.

17:50 , Alex Young

85min: Doku wants his goal, taking on one, two, three defenders before the four gets a boot in inside the area. It almost falls to Haaland but Soucek is there to prevent another goal.

17:47 , Alex Young

82min: Doku looks to twist and turn into the area and fires off a shot, which brushes the outside netting.

17:44 , Alex Young

78min: All a bit pedestrian now. City players and fans just counting down the clock.


17:38 , Alex Young

74min: Another City free kick, this time Foden gets the honours and sends a shot narrowly wide.

17:35 , Alex Young

71min: First change for City as Akanji is replaced by Ake.

17:33 , Alex Young

69min: De Bruyne corner comes in and it looks to be heading straight in at the back post, but Mavropanos heads clear.

The following corner is cleared after a Haaland shot is blocked by Cresswell.

17:32 , Alex Young

68min: It’s Poznan time.

17:31 , Alex Young

67min: Corner comes in, Dias rises highest to get a small touch which only serves to take the ball out of Haaland’s reach.

17:30 , Alex Young

66min: Foden finds Haaland in the centre to sweep home, but Zouma stands tall to make a vital block.

17:29 , Alex Young

64min: City back to calmly passing the ball around in their half. West Ham not even really trying to get out.

17:26 , Alex Young

61min: Is that the title sealed (again)? Relief sweeps across the stadium.

17:24 , Alex Young

59min: Rodri is known for his goals in the biggest games... and he has another!

He fires low from the edge of the area.

17:23 , Alex Young

58min: City just camped on the edge of West Ham’s area.

17:20 , Alex Young

56min: It’s back to feeling very nervous again until a chant of ‘Come on City’ rings around the ground.

Come on, get this job done.

17:19 , Alex Young

55min: Foden floats it in but Soucek heads clear unchallenged.

17:18 , Alex Young

54min: City win a free kick after Haaland is giving a bit too much a tug by a West Ham defender.

17:15 , Alex Young

51min: Foden’s turn to flash a shot wide of the same post, this one from 30 yards.

Can’t blame him for having a go.

17:14 , Alex Young

50min: De Bruyne was a first-time effort from 25 yards which fizzes wide after Foden is dispossed.

17:13 , Alex Young

49min: Ok, they’ve woken up. ‘Blue Moon’ being sung very loudly now.

17:11 , Alex Young

47min: It feels more tense already. Quieter in the stands.

Second half!

17:09 , Alex Young

46min: Here we go then.

17:08 , Alex Young

It looks like they are syncing up with the Arsenal game. Both games yet to restart. Players on just back out.

17:00 , Alex Young

Foden had his first after 79 seconds, it had another 16 minutes later. City were cruising.

But a bit of Kudus magic has changed the mood completely.

Guardiola’s half-time team talk will have changed.



16:52 , Alex Young

50min: There’s the whistle.

16:51 , Alex Young

49min: The atmosphere has certainly dipped since that goal. Arsenal have also equalised, so it’s got a bit nervy all of a sudden.

16:50 , Alex Young

47min: Haaland goes close again, spinning a shot over the bar when six yards out.

Surely he slots that away on games.

16:49 , Alex Young

46min: Four minutes added on.

Nick Purewal at Etihad Stadium

16:48 , Alex Young

Mohammed Kudus stuns the entire Etihad with an overhead kick of the absolute highest quality.

The first anyone knew of it was when City were picking the ball out of the back of the net. An acrobatic thunderbolt that really needs to be seen to be believed.


16:46 , Alex Young

42min: Kudus has just scored a stunner! A West Ham corner comes in, City don’t deal with and then Kudus just sets himself up for an incredible overhead kick.

Is... is that goal of the season? Guardiola is furious.

16:43 , Alex Young

News of Everton taking the lead filters around the Etihad, and the City fans are on their feet and dancing around. The party atmosphere sees no signs of slowing down any time soon.

16:41 , Alex Young

38min: Well, if City were not already feeling confident... Arsenal have just gone 1-0 down at home to Everton!

16:39 , Alex Young

34min: Antonio dashes down the right - well, ‘dashes’ may be overegging it - but Ortega trots out to boot the ball into the stands.

Is that the Man City keeper’s first touch?

16:35 , Alex Young

28min: Corner comes in, Gvardiol meets it but for once he doesn’t score.

16:35 , Alex Young

31min: Gvardiol plays through Haaland, who looks certain to beat Areola but the keeper makes himself big enough.

The striker may have also been offside.

16:34 , Alex Young

30min: The opening half an hour has been a clinic from City. This is far from the first time they have gone into the final day needing a result, but this looks to be by far the easiest.

16:31 , Alex Young

27min: De Bruyne inches away from a stunning third, curling the ball towards the far top corner and denied by Areola.

Fingertip save. Very impressive.

16:30 , Alex Young

24min: Foden stings Areola’s palms for the second time, having already beaten him twice of course.

You wouldn’t bet against him scoring a third hat-trick of the season today.

16:27 , Alex Young

22min: Haaland misses two good chances in as many minutes, the latest a flying scissor-kick after a Foden cut-back... but he gets his timings all wrong and ball fizzes behind him.

Nick Purewal at Etihad Stadium

16:24 , Alex Young

Scrap any and all thoughts of West Ham bursting the City bubble. At the moment the Hammers are blowing a gasket just trying to keep up.

Doku’s low cross should have been easily cut out, instead West Ham’s statuesque defence watched on as Foden strode on and swept home first-time, for his and City’s second of the day.

That’s 19 league goals for the season now. No reason why he cannot make it 20 today at this rate.

16:22 , Alex Young

18min: That really is that for the title race!

Foden sweeps home a glorious second goal, but the assist from Doku is something else - arrowed between three West Ham players.

16:21 , Alex Young

17min: It should be 2-0! Rodri is found charge into the area, takes a touch and then fires low at the near post, but it’s inches wide.

16:19 , Alex Young

15min: Doku wins another corner for City, coming inside and firing across the keeper.

Areola has been very busy.

16:18 , Alex Young

13min: Half a sight of goal for West Ham as Emerson makes good inroads inside the City half. He works it out wide to Kudus who tries to find a team-mate in the middle, but Walker clears.

Foden only has eyes for the sixth Premier League title of his still fledgling career.

City are already in total control.

16:14 , Alex Young

11min: De Bruyne whips it towards the near post, and again Areola pushes away.

16:13 , Alex Young

10min: Not sure West Ham have strung more than six or seven passes together. City win a free kick on the corner of the area, on the right-hand side.


16:11 , Alex Young

2min: Foden drills one into the top corner from the edge of the area!

The title party is up and running inside 90 seconds!


16:11 , Alex Young

8min: City just probing the Hammers defence. De Bruyne tries his luck from 25 yards, which Areola does well to parry.

16:10 , Alex Young

4min: City all over West Ham, as you’d expect. It’s not the most raucous of atmospheres... yet.


16:03 , Alex Young

1min: For one final time this season, here we go!

This game the last of the 10 to get under way.

16:00 , Alex Young

Here come the teams! Lots of very young children in tow.

Right, final preparations have been done. It’s almost time.

Ogbonna's swansong

15:49 , Alex Young

Today looks to be Angelo Ogbonna’s final game as a West Ham player, and he’s on the bench.

What does the future have in hold? He spoke to Malik Ouzia earlier this week.

David Moyes to Sky Sports

15:45 , Alex Young

“My emotions are fine, every game is important for a manager. I have enjoyed my time at West Ham. I had a great send off last week, we had a good result too and hopefully we can do that again today.

"It is difficult when you don't have Jarrod [Bowen]. He has tonsillitis and it wasn't well enough to travel. He is a big miss for us, to be without him is a blow."

15:44 , Alex Young

The Premier League trophy is at the Etihad Stadium today, of course. But a replica is at Arsenal just in case the unthinkable happens.

Premier League chief Richard Masters has chosen to be at the Emirates this afternoon, which is quite an interesting decision.

Latest odds ahead of kick-off

To win today

  • Man City - 1/14

  • Draw - 15/2

  • West Ham - 16/1

To win the title

  • Man City - 1/14

  • Arsenal - 9/1

Nick Purewal at Etihad Stadium

15:27 , Alex Young

“West Ham will burst someone’s bubble today, whether they are blowing their own or not. Arsenal will be desperately hoping that the Hammers smash Manchester City at the Etihad, to give David Moyes the mother of all send-offs – and then probably the Gunners the title. City have other ideas and then some, aiming to claim an English record fourth top-flight title in succession.

“Kyle Walker will make his 300th City appearance, while Phil Foden is looking for his sixth Premier League title aged just 23. Moyes will oversee his 262nd and final West Ham match, with Julen Lopetegui taking the helm for next term.

“The Scot is winless in 15 matches in all competitions against City. Pep Guardiola’s men hardly need to deal in omens though, especially when the Spaniard can claim his 17th title in his City tenure today.”


Team news

15:21 , Alex Young

Man City make two changes, with Ortega starting in goal in place of the injured Ederson. Elsewhere, Doku starts ahead of Kovacic.

David Moyes also makes two changes for his final West Ham XI. Bowen is not in the squad, so Cresswell starts. Mavropanos shakes off an injury, replacing Ogbonna.

Aaron Cresswell to Sky Sports

15:19 , Alex Young

"We are not focused on [City’s title hopes], we are here to do a job. We have to be professional, we are representing West Ham.

But, Dec [ex-West Ham team-mate Declan Rice] has been on the phone!

"They [Man City] are a fantastic team and it's always going to be tough coming here."

Nick Purewal at the Etihad Stadium

15:08 , Alex Young

It’s a scorcher in Manchester, where West Ham can either do Arsenal the mother of all favours, or Man City will claim the record fourth-straight top-flight title.

Sun’s out for the champions-elect.

14:32 , Alex Young

It sounds like the usual suspects all start this afternoon. Guardiola putting the roulette wheel away.

David Moyes leaves door open to potential third spell

14:30 , Marc Mayo

David Moyes says he would be open to managing abroad again as he urged more British coaches to take their chance overseas - but also refused to rule out one day returning to West Ham.

Moyes is set to manage the Hammers for the final time when he takes his side to Manchester City for today’s final game of the season, before leaving the club when his contract expires this summer.

It will be the second time Moyes has walked away from West Ham, having also been let go in the summer of 2018, despite having succeeded in the goal of his short-term appointment by leading the club clear of relegation.

Asked whether he could be tempted back by a similar call in future, Moyes said: “You never say never in this game, I've always enjoyed my time here so who knows?”

Rewind: Erling Haaland breaks record vs Hammers

14:22 , Marc Mayo

Almost exactly a year ago, Man City beat West Ham 3-0 at the Etihad.

Erling Haaland stole the headlines with the second goal of the night, which made him the first Premier League player to score 35 times in a single season.

Head-to-head record

14:15 , Marc Mayo

Pep Guardiola has won 11 of his 15 games against Moyes throughout their careers - including every home game he’s faced against the Scot.

Man City wins: 63

Draws: 19

West Ham wins: 38

How Man City can win the title today

14:08 , Marc Mayo

If Manchester City win, they are champions.

As simple as that.

A loss or a draw means the same thing: they have to hope Arsenal fail to beat Everton.

Any dropped points for City, plus an Arsenal win, equals a trophy parade in north London.

Score prediction

13:40 , Marc Mayo

City are on a relentless run of form and it’s difficult to see Moyes leaving with anything on his final game.

Man City to win, 3-1.

Our prediction for the Hammers XI

13:34 , Marc Mayo

Predicted West Ham XI: Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Emerson; Alvarez, Soucek; Bowen, Paqueta, Kudus; Antonio

Doubts: Aguerd, Mavropanos

Injured/ineligible: Phillips

Early West Ham team news

13:25 , Marc Mayo

The Hammers will make decisions on Nayef Aguerd and Konstantinos Mavropanos after recent knocks, though no update was given on Friday.

Midfielder Kalvin Phillips would not have been eligible to play against his parent side anyway but has seen his season ended prematurely by injury.

How we expect Man City to line up

13:18 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Man City XI: Ortega; Walker, Stones, Dias, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovacic; Silva, De Bruyne, Foden; Haaland

Injuries: Ederson

Doubts: De Bruyne

Early Man City team news

13:10 , Marc Mayo

City will be without goalkeeper Ederson after he was replaced during the Spurs game following a collision with Cristian Romero. The Brazil international will also miss the FA Cup final.

Kevin De Bruyne came off because he “couldn’t run properly” and while the midfielder then eased any injury concerns, Pep Guardiola was coy on his chances of playing ahead of the weekend.

John Stones and Nathan Ake will hope to come into the defence while Mateo Kovacic looks set to partner Rodri in midfield, unless City put out an ultra-offensive setup.

Where to watch Man City vs West Ham
