West Ham vs Man City: Live Premier League updates from the London Stadium
Champions Manchester City continue to play out their season with a trip to West Ham.

Pep Guardiola’s side are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table with four matches remaining.

They may have wrapped up the title but they showed against Swansea last week that they are not going to take their foot of the gas.

After that 5-0 win, City now have 90 points – five behind Chelsea’s record with four games remaining.

They have 29 wins, needing just one more to equal the record, and 98 goals – needing just six more to break that record.

West Ham XI: Adrian, Rice, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Noble, Evra, Fernandes, Lanzini, Arnautovic.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Delph, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling.

WEST HAM 1-4 MANCHESTER CITY – FERNANDINHO

64: City get revenge for that penalty decision. Fernandinho sweeps home after a quick break by the champions. Game dead and buried now.

60: Penalty? Sterling goes down under a Cresswell challenge after cutting back from the byline. It looks nailed on from every angle in the stadium bar the referee’s. He’s not given it. Somehow.

WEST HAM 1-3 MANCHESTER CITY – JESUS

53: I may have spoken too soon about that West Ham revival.

Gabriel Jesus rounds off a lovely move by tapping home Raheem Sterling’s cutback across the six-yard box.

The Brazilian took a whack off Adrian when slotting home, but he’s up and about again.

51: And there’s the danger. City are lethal on the break with West Ham committing a few more bodies forward. Jesus and Sane combine nicely but the German overruns it slightly and Adrian gathers.

48: Marko Arnautovic is giving Manchester City’s defence something to think about. the Austrian bullies Otamendi before Laporte sweeps around to block his effort.

There’s something here for West Ham if they keep playing like this.

45: And we’re back underway at the London Stadium. No changes for either side.

HT: Whisper it quietly, but we’ve got a real match on our hands here at the London Stadium. City looked to have blown West Ham away in the opening stages but David Moyes’ side have shown real fight to come back at the champions.

Oh and before I forget. After a review by the Premier League Match Centre, the second Man City goal is now a Pablo Zabaleta own goal after he gets the last touch.

49: Hmmmm. Otamendi trips Lanzini but referee Neil Swarbrick decides it’s not worthy of a second yellow card. City fortunate to have 11 on the field.

48: Adrian is doing his best to protect this one-goal deficit as Raheem Sterling makes himself a few yards before seeing a shot saved.

47: Heart in mouth moment as the ball dribbles out to Kevin De Bruyne, who bends a 20-yard strike just wide of the post.

45: What a difference that goal made. The London Stadium has come to life as David Moyes’ side go searching for a second.

WEST HAM 1-2 MANCHESTER CITY – CRESSWELL

42: What a strike! A free-kick was given instead of a penalty, but West Ham fans won’t care now!

Aaron Cresswell curls a beautiful free-kick from 25 yards beyond Ederson to net his first Premier League goal in two years!

41: Oh that’s tight. Gundogan swipes at Fernandes just inside the penalty area but referee Neil Swarbrick says it’s only a free-kick. It’s within shooting range with Cresswell to deliver…

40: Disallowed goal! West Ham think they’ve pulled one back. Ederson is caught in possession by Arnautovic, who ploughs through him to steal possession. City goalkeeper got a tad fortunate there.

38: Almost three! Sterling and Sane combine again but Adrian manages to do just enough to prevent further damage, diving at Leroy’s feet.

35: Kouyate is up and about again. Looks like the midfielder is going to carry on. Cresswell whips a rare cross into the middle but there isn’t a single West Ham player challenging.

32: Man City have now scored 100 goals in 35 games this season, the quickest an English top-flight side has reached this milestone in a single campaign since Everton in 1931-32.

29: This is actually quite alarming. Kouyate is down after a collision with Laporte. The medical staff are on the field and he’s up, but I can’t see him carrying on.

WEST HAM 0-2 MANCHESTER CITY – RICE OG

26: It’s just a catalogue of errors from West Ham. Comedy of errors even.

Adrian races off his line to meet Raheem Sterling and doesn’t make it. The England international’s effort is headed to De Bruyne by Ogbonna and his dangerous cross is turned into his own net by Declan Rice.

Play the Benny Hill theme over this later.

23: You could hear a pin drop inside this stadium today. In fact, testing that expression might slow the visitors down for a while. Someone pop out to WHSmith…

20: Leroy Sane has scored 10 goals in a single top-flight season for the first time in his career.

19: Why is Gary Neville commentating on this match for Sky Sports instead of Manchester United vs Arsenal later? He sounds pretty aggravated to me. Very dour.

16: Nearly an instant response from the hosts. Lanzini and Arnautovic combine nicely down the right and Ederson parries the Austrian’s effort away to safety.

WEST HAM 0-1 MANCHESTER CITY – SANE

13: The flat atmosphere inside the London Stadium has been squashed some more.

Raheem Sterling plays a crossfield pass to Leroy Sane, who collects it before blasting a heavily deflected effort past the wrong-footed Adrian.

Looks like former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra got the unlock deflection. I’m sure City fans won’t enjoy that at all…

12: Chance! Sterling plays it wide to the overlapping Walker, but Gundogan can’t steer the low cross on target.
