Manchester City know victory at West Ham today will open up a six-point advantage at the Premier League's summit over title challengers Liverpool, who play in the FA Cup final the day before. The stakes couldn't be bigger for Pep Guardiola's side, whose recent run of goalscoring form has given them the goal difference advantage, but David Moyes' Hammers still have Europa League qualification to play for and won't let City have it all their own way. Make sure you know how to watch a West Ham vs Manchester City live stream wherever you are.

The teams are in and West Ham make one change from the defeat of Norwich as two-goal Said Benrahma misses out through injury and is replaced by Tomas Soucek. Manuel Lanzini will push further forward in support of Michail Antonio up front. Pablo Fornals, Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen all start. Mark Noble is set to make his final home West Ham appearance if he comes on.

Manchester City make three changes as Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Gabriel Jesus come in for Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden. Bernardo Silva should revert to midfield, with Jesus through the middle as centre-forward. Kevin De Bruyne starts after his four goals against Wolves.

Whether it's the Europa League or the Europa Conference League, West Ham have a good shot at a second successive season's continental competition. The Irons ultimately fell at the semi-finals of the former tournament to Eintracht Frankfurt this term, but the East Londoners' European adventures have been one of the feel-good stories of 2021/22.

Those exploits may have brought a thin squad to its knees in recent weeks – Sunday's 4-0 win at relegated Norwich, which featured a hat-trick of assists for top scorer Jarrod Bowen, was their first since the beginning of April – but manager David Moyes will want to finish the season strongly as he tries to persuade club captain-elect Declan Rice to spurn advances from a Premier League giant or three.

Manchester City, meanwhile, have responded in typically efficient style to Champions League heartache against Real Madrid a week and a half ago. A 5-0 defeat of Newcastle and a 5-1 shellacking of Wolves have gone a long way towards winning a fourth Premier League title in five years. Beat West Ham and Manchester City will have at least an eight-goal advantage over Liverpool, depending on the size of the victory, which would all-but secure the title.

Kevin De Bruyne, fresh from scoring four goals against Wolves on Wednesday night, is firing again and must be licking his lips at the incoming arrival of goalscoring robot Erling Haaland. City with an actual centre-forward? It'll never catch on.

The match kicks off at 2pm BST today, Sunday 15th May, 2022. Follow our guide on how to watch a West Ham vs Manchester City live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a West Ham vs Manchester City live stream from abroad using a VPN

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee.
