West Ham Form and Team News
The Hammers snapped a four-match losing run in all competitions to out four past an already-relegated Norwich City side. Moyes’s men can now turn to sealing their place in the Europa Conference League next season (they need only one point) or leapfrogging Manchester United to clinch the Europa League ticket.
Winning against this City side looks like an uphill task, with their last win in regular time coming in 2015. Their clean sheet against City in the EFL Cup in October was the first in twenty H2H matches, and a poor home record in recent weeks (one win, two draws, two losses, and no clean sheets) is another discouraging statistic.
Angelo Ogbonna remains injured, while Mohammed Said Benrahma, Michail Antonio, and Craig Dawson are doubtful to feature come Manchester City’s visit.
Manchester City Form and Team News
With at least three goals in each of their last five matches and five in three of their previous four, Manchester City have taken goalscoring to another level this season. Their 5-1 win against Wolves was the 11th time they put five goals past a team this season, and talisman Kevin de Bruyne scored four goals to hit 19 goals for the season.
City only need four points to be crowned champions, but if Liverpool fail to win on Tuesday, they can clinch the title if they win at West Ham. They are on a massive unbeaten run away from home, the best in their history, with fourteen wins and three draws.
Although his team is in fine goalscoring form, Guardiola will be worried over the lack of defensive options, as the team will go into this match without Ruben Dias, John Stones, and Kyle Walker, who are injured. City are also sweating over the fitness of Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho, who picked up knocks in midweek.
