Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports HD 1.


Manchester City are overwhelming favourites to win the league title after their 4-0 win over Aston Villa in mid-week and need just a point to finish ahead of Liverpool, who are currently two points behind the leaders.

A win will give City an unassailable tally of 86 points while a draw will take them to 84, which can be matched by Liverpool with a win. However, City have a goal difference of +63, compared with the Reds' +50, which should be enough to see them through.

Sergio Aguero is fit for the game as Manuel Pellegrini looks to field a strong XI capable of resisting the jitters that afflicted City when they last won the title in 2011/12. The Argentinian's goal in injury time against Queens Park Rangers gave the Citizens three points to lift them above Manchester United on goal difference.

Meanwhile, West Ham have saved themselves from relegation and will be looking to give Liverpool a ray of hope with a rejuvenated performance. Andy Carroll, who has put his injury concerns behind him, is expected to start for the Hammers, who will be boosted by their 2-0 win over Tottenham last weekend.

Manager Sam Allardyce's tactics has come under a lot of scrutiny from the fans and he will be looking to silence his detractors with an impressive performance against the title favourites.

What the Managers Say

Manuel Pellegrini: "I repeat, the reality is the way we did it is one of my best achievements in this season. The first thing I can say is we chose the right squad for what we needed to do this year. As a player I was a different character to the one I am today but to prepare to be a manager I think you must change a lot of things. You have to understand you are not a player and have another attitude with the players."

Sam Allardyce: "From a neutral's point of view I think everybody would like to see Liverpool win it, and from a personal point of view I'd like to see Steven Gerrard win it. It's the last thing for him which he hasn't quite achieved at Liverpool. He's been a one club man all his life. Obviously they've let it slip out of their hands. They had it to take, but they've now left it in the hands of Manchester City."
