Time: 2:15pm

Venue: Olympic Stadium

Channel: Sky Sports Main Event/Premier League

Already crowned champions Manchester City stand in the way of West Ham’s survival plan.

The hammers are again quickly sinking into trouble following their 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Stoke City and then suffered defeat with the visit of Arsenal.

Defeat in this fixture would mean West Ham remain just three points clear of the drop.

Manchester City know all about winning matches and claimed the title following their 3-1 victory over Champions League chasing Tottenham Hotspur and even before a 5-0 thrashing of Swansea City.

The champions were defeated twice in the Champions League by Liverpool, however, meaning the remaining Premier League fixtures are City’s only concern now.
