Kickoff

And so it begins! The Premier League leaders would be looking to get the 6-point gap on Liverpool in their quest to retain the title but will the Hammers let it happen?

Just four points from their final two games will guarantee the Manchester City the Premier League title, a triumph which could take a major step forwards with a trip to West Ham today.

Pep Guardiolaโ€™s side have simply not allowed their Champions League nightmare away at Real Madrid have too much of an impact on their Premier League form, putting five past Newcastle and Wolves in the games since.

The trip to Molineux was highlighted as a potential banana skin for the champions, along with their visit to West Ham on Sunday. Having come through the Wolves test rather easily, itโ€™s now the turn of David Moyesโ€™ side to try and have a say in the title race.

West Ham, of course, are in a battle of their own. A quick-fire return to the Europa League is on the cards if they can make up a three-point gap on Manchester United in sixth place, a feat that would further underline their upward trajectory.

Mark Nobleโ€™s last game in front of home support also means itโ€™s going to be an emotional afternoon in east London.
