Jarrod Bowen’s double had West Ham 2-0 up at half time but City fought back with goals from Jack Grealish and a Vladimir Coufal own goal. Riyad Mahrez had an 86th minute penalty kick saved by Lukasz Fabianski as City should have won it.
Still, they are four points clear of Liverpool who have two games to go and that means if Liverpool lose at Southampton on Tuesday then Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions for the fourth time in five seasons.
Even if Liverpool draw then City will likely be champions as Man City have a seven-goal advantage on goal difference. West Ham’s point means they are on 56 points and are still in the battle for sixth. They will definitely play in Europe next season as they have secured at least a Europa Conference League berth but can still qualify for the Europa League.

Three things we learned from West Ham vs Manchester City
1. Gritty City conjure spirit of 2012: This isn’t the first time they’ve pulled off something like this and although they couldn’t get the win they wanted, this comeback conjured the spirit of the 2011-12 title win. To be 2-0 down at half time and fight back to 2-2 showed incredible character. They should have won the game as Mahrez missed a penalty kick but in truth the job is almost done. Man City have a history of not doing things the easy way and this was the perfect example of that.
2. Bowen has to play for England: His two goals summed him up perfectly and Bowen was nominated for PL player of the year, has 18 goals to his name in all competitions and is having the season of his life. He timed his runs to perfection, is so incisive with his running and never ever gives up. England could really use him buzzing around underneath Harry Kane and he’s a very different player to the rest of their forwards. Bowen has to be called up by England this June for their UEFA Nations League games.
3. Grealish stands tall when City need him most: Aside from his goal he looked like the Grealish we saw at Aston Villa. He gave Coufal a torrid time and cut inside and outside, opened up space for others and City gave him the ball time and time again. The most expensive transfer in Premier League history hasn’t found top form consistently this season but when City needed him he sparked their second half comeback.
Man of the Match: Jarrod Bowen – Took his goals superbly, went close to scoring a hat trick and caused City’s defense so many problems.
Bowen takes charge
The Hammers started well as Craig Dawson had the first big chance of the game but he nodded over when he should have hit the target.
Rodri’s deflected shot was dangerous, then Fernandinho drilled just over as City tried to step on the gas.
Just as they did that West Ham took the lead as one long ball over the top found Bowen and he raced in on goal, took the ball past Ederson and finished superbly to make it 1-0 and send the London Stadium wild.
West Ham held firm after taking the lead as Kevin de Bruyne’s ball into the box was hacked clear by Tomas Soucek, then Gabriel Jesus fired a shot just wide. Jesus then did superbly to wriggle away from multiple defenders but his shot was blocked.
Right on half time Bowen made it 2-0 as once again a flick over the top saw Bowen time his run to perfect as he ran in on goal and hammered home a low shot.
Grealish gets City back in it
A few minutes into the second half Man City were back in it as Grealish volleyed into the floor and the ball flew past Fabianski.
Soon after it was almost 2-2 as a ball flashed across the face of goal but nobody could finish, then Jesus ran in on goal but his shot was saved well by Fabianski.
Fabianski then denied Bernardo Silva brilliantly as West Ham were hanging on. However, Fernandinho then made a huge mistake with a back pass but Antonio lobbed his shot over Ederson but also wide.
Vladimir Coufal then scored an own goal as a free kick into the box was nodded into his own net by the Czech Republic international to make it 2-2.
Incredible drama late on
Bowen saw his deflected effort fly just wide as West Ham pushed to go ahead, but then City were awarded a penalty.
Jesus was fouled in the box by Dawson and after a VAR review and a check of the pitch-side monitor, the penalty was given. However, Mahrez’s effort was saved by Fabianski as City coughed up the chance to take the lead.
With nine teams currently separated by four points, from 20th to 12th places, the 2022-23 Premier League relegation battle is not only set to last until the final day, but the final two months of the season are sure to be one of the wildest roller-coaster rides of all time.
Three clubs will be relegated from the Premier League (and replaced by three teams from the EFL Championship, of course) at season’s end. Never before have this many clubs been this close to the bottom-three, and the bottom of the table, at this point of a season.
How many games remaining between relegation candidates?
There are 23 remaining head-to-head matchups between the nine teams currently in the relegation battle.
Crystal Palace: 8 games (1 against every other team)
Wolves: 4 games
Leeds: 5 games
Everton: 4 games
Nottingham Forest: 4 games
Leicester: 6 games
West Ham: 5 games
Bournemouth: 6 games
Southampton: 4 games
Mexico and the USMNT are the first two (of four) sides through to the final round, with Panama and Canada currently in pole position to finish atop their respective groups when they conclude play on Tuesday.
It was a frustratingly slow start by the USMNT on Monday, as El Salvador refused to let the Americas get comfortable or play their game. Long balls over the top of the USMNT defense created a few nervy moments early on, but interim head coach Anthony Hudson’s side looked a completely different side after halftime.
The USMNT’s first real scoring chance came in the 46th minute, when Gio Reyna cut in from the left wing, worked his way past two defenders and fired a shot low and hard toward the near post. The ball smashed the front of the post and the rebound ricocheted back into play, just out of Alejandro Zendejas’ reach atop the six-yard box.
Zendejas went close to opening the scoring just two minutes later, as he audaciously — but necessarily — lobbed the ball over a frazzled Mario Gonzalez in goal, only to pull it just wide of the far post.
The Yanks kept the pressure up as the second half wore on, and eventually got their reward in the 62nd minute. A minute after Pepi came into the game, Weston McKennie found the 20-year-old forward making a dangerous run in behind the Salvadoran defense, but Gonzalez saw it early as well and came out to close down his angles as Pepi jostled with the last defender. Pepi went for the cheeky chip over the ‘keeper, to go with the two goals he scored against Grenada on Friday.
When Miles Robinson ruptured his achilles in May of last year, the USMNT lost its most consistent defensive performer throughout much of World Cup qualifying, leaving Gregg Berhalter with only two reasonably tested options at center back: Tim Ream and Walker Zimmerman.
Ream was something of a revelation at 35 years old in Qatar and Zimmerman held his own in his three starts, but the damage was done with the USMNT’s highest-ceiling center back suddenly out of the picture. But Robinson returned to the USMNT fold on Monday, after making four appearances to start the MLS season, and the 26-year-old, who will be out of contract at the end of the year, was arguably the best player on the field.
Having suffered a major injury just months before his first trip to a World Cup, it’s likely that Robinson will look to take every opportunity ahead of him and test himself overseas, and he shouldn’t be short on options either. Short term, he’ll continue to partner Ream; long term, the hope is that Robinson and Chris Richards, who has struggled to stay healthy for much of the last two years, will form a formidable partnership ahead of the 2026 World Cup.
When the USMNT reconvenes for its next camp next month, the Yanks will face rivals Mexico in the Continental Clasico in Glendale, Ariz, on April 19.
A number of nations have guaranteed themselves no worse than a playoff spot due to their performances in the UEFA Nations League: Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Georgia, Croatia, Turkey, Serbia, Kazakhstan.
