City seeks to make history with its fourth consecutive Premier against West Ham


Manchester City will seek to make history this Sunday against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium by winning their fourth consecutive Premier League, something that no team has achieved so far, in a thirty-eighth and final matchday in which Arsenal must beat Everton in the Emirates to stay with a chance of being champion.

With a victory against the ‘Hammers’, Pep Guardiola’s men, leaders with 88 points, would secure a new league title, but the accounts would begin to get complicated in the event of a draw or defeat; In that situation, to retain the title, the Gunners, second only two units behind (86), would have to do the same.

In the event of a tie for the ‘sky blue’ and victory for Mikel Arteta’s team, which would leave a tie at 89 points, the tiebreaker criterion for general goal difference would be activated, which is now +1 for the London team . To avoid problems, City does not think about any other result than victory.

During the week, Guardiola’s men regained the privileged position in the postponed duel against Tottenham (0-2) thanks to a double from the Norwegian Erling Haaland and, above all, to the memorable performance of Stefan Ortega, who came off the bench to replace the injured Ederson and stopped two one-on-ones from the ‘Spurs’. The Swiss will start again this Sunday after it was confirmed that the Brazilian suffers from a fracture in his eye socket.

Now, the team will look for its 23rd game in a row without losing in the Premier League – 18 wins and four draws – against a West Ham that reaches the last day with nothing at stake but will want to say goodbye to its coach David Moyes with a victory, who He will leave the team after this season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal, who have won their last five games in the domestic competition, need to beat Everton at the Emirates to win the title. However, Liverpool, with nothing to fight for, have added 13 of the last 15 points at stake and will not make things easy for them.

The other two teams with the ‘Champions’ secured, Liverpool (79) and Unai Emery’s Aston Villa (68), will face, respectively, Wolverhampton at Anfield, where Jürgen Klopp will say goodbye to what has been his fan base for many years. nine seasons, and to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

For its part, Tottenham, fifth (63), will need one point against Sheffield United to guarantee its place in the Europa League against Chelsea (60), which faces Bournemouth and still has to ensure its presence in the Conference League. The other contender for sixth place, Newcastle (57) – Manchester United (57) is virtually ruled out due to a goal balance of -3 – faces Brentford away from home.

The last relegation place will be for Luton (26), who will play at home against a Fulham that has nothing to play for, or Nottingham Forest (29), who will face the already relegated Burnley at home. A draw will be enough for the two-time European champions to save themselves.
