Live stream West Ham United v Manchester City, Sunday 15 May 2pm BST
Manchester City will look to take another step closer to the Premier League title when they take on West Ham on Sunday.
The pressure was on the champion in the middle of the week. Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Tuesday saw the Reds rise level on points with City at the top of the table. A potential banana peel loomed in the form of a trip to Molineux to face off against a side from Wolves who had denied Chelsea a win in their previous encounter.
In the end, City made a sneer at suggestions that could make for a difficult evening on Wednesday. Kevin De Bruyne was the star of the show with a remarkable four goals, but City outclassed their hosts on all counts. A 5-1 win put them three points clear of the Reds, who are set to contest this weekend’s FA Cup final. That means City have a chance to build a six-point lead at the London Stadium.
West Ham aren’t on the beach just yet, however. Victory on Sunday would see them overtake Manchester United and climb to sixth place – their final Europa League qualifying spot. The Hammers made it to the semi-finals of this year’s edition of the competition and are looking to return to Europe next year.
Aymeric Laporte was substituted in the Wolves game, leaving City just inside the middle this weekend. Neither Ruben Dias nor John Stones are expected to recover in time, while backup defender Fernandinho is in doubt. So Nathan Ake could start alongside Rodri in the heart of the back line. Kyle Walker is also out.
West Ham are without Angelo Ogbonnna and Said Benrahma on Sunday but Michail Antonio and Craig Dawson will hope to be fit in time.
kick-off is over 2 p.m. CET At Sunday May 15 and the game will be broadcast live from Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. See below for international shipping options.

Annoyingly, when you’re abroad for a round of Premier League games, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are based on your IP address (boo!). You’re blocked from watching it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To get around this, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), provided it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t figure out where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information that goes in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
