Man City v West Ham LIVE: Latest updates from Premier League’s final day

Must read

We will get credit for title if we win, don’t know what people think of us – Guardiola

Manchester City will win a unprecedented fourth successive Premier League title if they beat West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium today.

City come into the final day two points clear of Arsenal after seeing off Tottenham in midweek, and now have one last hurdle to overcome. “One game left, destiny in our hands, we need to win one game to be champions,” Pep Guardiola said this week. “Everyone would love to be in our position. But it won’t be easy.”

However, West Ham have been widely doubted this week and even their manager, David Moyes, holds little hope in his last game in charge. “It would be difficult to stop their Under-14s winning the title,” said Moyes, in a sign that West Ham may not put up the stiffest fight on behalf of their London rivals.

Arsenal meanwhile take on Everton at the Emirates as they look to finish off their season with a win that would snatch the title if City slip up. Follow the latest scores and all the action from the Premier League’s final day below.

24 mins: CLOSE! City are rampant and are looking to put this game out of sight by half-time (if it isn’t already).

Mavrapanos does superbly to deny Haaland from close range before Foden’s latest effort stings the palms of Areola.

Still goalless at the Emirates, meanwhile.

GOAL! Manchester City 2-0 West Ham (Foden, 18 mins)

City have a second and could that be the title race done and dusted?

Doku has made a bright start to this game and finds Foden with a pinpoint cutback from the left wing. The Englishman makes no mistake, sweeping home past Areola to put his side in total control.

Manchester City 1-0 West Ham

17 mins: CLOSE! De Bruyne finds Rodri’s surging run into the area but the Spaniard’s toe-poked effort can only brush the side-netting. A good chance for Rodri who perhaps had more time over the finish than he thought.

14 mins: West Ham launch their first attack of the game as Emerson bursts through the middle of the pitch. In the end, though, Coufal’s cross is hacked away by Walker and the home fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

At the Emirates, the hosts are in full control but a great stop from Pickford denies the Gunners’ latest effort from Martinelli.

10 mins: Gvardiol wins a free-kick on the left edge of the penalty area which is whipped in from De Bruyne but punched well clear by Areola.

GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 West Ham (Foden, 2 mins)

The perfect start for Man City!

Foden was voted the league’s player of the season and it’s easy to see why. A delightful turn as he receives the ball from Silva before smashing a left-footed effort past Areola and into the far corner.
