    Can West Ham really stop Man City from winning the title?

    Probable Lineups:

    CityWestHamManchester City (4-2-3-1): Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Kompany, Kolarov,Garcia, Y Toure, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Dzeko

    It once again comes down to final match of the campaign for Manchester City as a win or even a draw will bring the title back to the Blue side of Manchester. The club’s four consecutive victories right at the end of the campaign put them back at the top of the Premier League and their rise in form came at the right time. Manuel Pellegrini will possibly not make any changes to the side that got their vital 4-0 win over Aston Villa in midweek as he will probably go for the win rather than risk a draw. Sergio Aguero is a doubt and should not feature as he needs time to heal while Matija Nastasic and Jesus Navas could miss the match true injury.

    West Ham United (4-2-3-1): Adrian, Demel, Tomkins, Reid, McCarthy, Noble, Diame, Downing, Nolan, Jarvis, Carroll

    West Ham United who have nothing but pride at stake could cause a major unset should they put up a fighting display against potential title winners Manchester City. Liverpool will be hoping they do try to play for the win as the title race is put into their hands. Sam Allardyce would continue his usual formation with target man Andy Caroll occupying the lone striker’s role supported by Stewart Downing and Matthew Jarvis down the flanks. Matthew Taylor looks to be sacraficed in place of Jarvis at left midfield with Big Sam hoping to give the Hammers fan a good finale to the season.

    What the fans are saying…

     

    Remember this?

    Just recently we saw Manchester City crush West Ham United 6-0, so Liverpool fans may want to turn away as they hope for a miracle. Here is the sixth goal in the match from City’s Edin Dzeko.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Dzeko

    With the injury to Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko will be leading the lines in the vital title deciding match against West Ham United. His recent form says it all with the striker scoring five goals in his last three games bring his Premier League tally to 16. Expect nothing less than more goals for the Bosnian star.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Four of Manchester City’s six Premier League defeats this season have come on a Sunday.

    Andy Carroll has scored five Premier League goals against Manchester City; more than he has against any other opponent in the competition.
