Man City v West Ham LIVE: Premier League team news and line-ups plus Arsenal-Everton updates

Will City clinch the Premier League title or will Arsenal steal their crown? Follow all the latest updates from the final day

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.


Yesterday in the WSL

It’s the turn of the Premier League today, but, on Saturday, the WSL came to a thrilling conclusion as Emma Hayes’ Chelsea captured their fifth league title in a row after a thumping 6-0 win away against Manchester United.

Premier League LIVE

As well as a dramatic title race, the Premier League is heading for a frantic late scramble to decide the final European places this season – with several spots still up for grabs ahead of the final day.

Aston Villa have secured the fourth Champions League place, in a stunning achievement for Unai Emery’s side.

But Erik ten Hag’s side did beat Newcastle, their fellow challengers for the European places, to build some late momentum ahead of the FA Cup final against Man City. So, with a single game to go, here’s how the battle for the final European places is shaping up.

Arsenal vs Everton pre-match stats, via Opta

Team news – Man City vs West Ham

Manchester City will be without Ederson, who fractured his eye socket against Tottenham. Stefan Ortega will deputise having produced a couple of key saves in that game having been introduced from the bench.

Nayef Aguerd and Konstantinos Mavropanos could miss out for West Ham, perhaps leaving Angelo Ogbonna to partner skipper Kurt Zouma again in what could be the Italian’s final appearance for the club. Kalvin Phillips would have been ineligible against his parent club, but the midfielder is already back at Manchester City with his season curtailed by injury.

Premier League 2023/24 awards: Best player, signing and moments of season

Pep Guardiola’s side can win a record fourth-successive Premier League crown at the Etihad on Sunday.

While Sheffield United, Burnley and Luton have all gone straight back down following promotion last year to somewhat reduce the final-day drama.

There are still European places to play for though, with Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Manchester United eyeing up Europa League or Europa Conference League action next term – although Erik ten Hag’s side can still qualify through the FA Cup should they defeat Man City in next week’s final.

Here, Indy Sport picks through the campaign and hand out our 2023/24 awards:

Premier League Golden Boot standings: Can anyone challenge Erling Haaland?

Erling Haaland is set to win a second consecutive Premier League Golden Boot award as the title race goes down to the final day.

Manchester City will be champions for the fourth year in a row should they beat West Ham United at home, giving Haaland further incentive to bolster his tally.

Ahead of the final day, Haaland has scored 27 goals in just 30 Premier League appearances – putting the Norwegian five goals clear of his closest challenger, Chelsea’s Cole Palmer. Newcastle’s Alexander Isak is on 20 Premier League goals, while Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke are on 19.

Haaland scored a record 36 goals in his debut Premier League campaign last season. In total, Erling Haaland has scored 63 goals in his first 65 Premier League games – the most of any player in his first two seasons in the division.

And barring a remarkable haul of goals elsewhere, a second Premier League Golden Boot award is set to Haaland’s as well.

David Moyes ‘will do everything to beat us’, says Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola expects David Moyes to “do everything” to spoil Manchester City’s party on his West Ham swansong.

“It’s curious. My first game in the Premier League was against Sunderland and David Moyes was there. Now, another important game, he will be there.

“Always it is an honour to see him. When I’m there, he’s always so kind. He’s a lovely person, his experience speaks for itself.

“But he will do everything to beat us.”

David Moyes determined to beat Man City – but not for Declan Rice

David Moyes is determined to sign off at West Ham with a victory – but not as a favour to former captain Declan Rice.

The Hammers could swing the title race the way of Rice’s current side Arsenal if they can pull off a shock win in Moyes’ final match in charge of the club at Manchester City on Sunday.

“Everybody here loves Declan, everybody will remember him, but we’re not doing it for Declan,” Moyes said.

“We’re fully focused on ourselves. We’re not playing to make Manchester City lose the Premier League or for Arsenal to win the league, we’re playing for West Ham and we’re trying to win the game for our supporters.

“It’s difficult to beat Manchester City at any time, especially when they know they’ve got to win a game to secure the championship. That puts us under pressure because of what Manchester City can do, but it also puts them under a bit of pressure.

“Football is a strange game, and you never know what moments you’re going to have to win games. We have to try and take those opportunities when they arrive.”
