West Ham vs Manchester City live analysis! – By Joe Prince-Wright at the London Stadium

  • 3 things we learned
  • Man City four points clear at the top
  • If Man City win their final game of the season against Aston Villa they will be champions
  • If Liverpool lose on Tuesday at Southampton then City are champions
  • A draw for Liverpool means City will have a three-point lead and at seven-goal advantage on goal difference

FULL TIME: West Ham 2-2 Manchester City – Man City are four points clear at the top. Liverpool have two games left. Man City have one. If Liverpool lose at Southampton on Tuesday then City are crowned champions and if they draw then City will likely be champions due to their huge seven-goal advantage over Liverpool.

SAVEDDDD! Riyad Mahrez’s penalty kick is saved by Fabianski. What drama.

PENALTY KICK! Dawson catches Gabriel Jesus. After a VAR check a penalty is given.

10 minutes to go…

City’s fans are urging their team on. They are in total control of this game with just over 15 minutes to go. Can they find a winner?

GOALLLL! 2-2. Coufal with a horrible own goal as his diving header flies into the far corner. City believe they can win this now. Their fans have gone wild.

Fernandinho with a huge mistake as he plays the ball back towards his own goal but didn’t spot Antonio. However, the West Ham forward tries to dink it over Ederson but dinks it wide. Huge chance wasted by the Hammers.

Kevin de Bruyne whips a free kick just over after he was clinically fouled by Coufal.

City are clicking through the gears now. They’ve almost scored a second a few times. Pep Guardiola is telling them to calm down a little bit. Dominance from City now.

GOALLL! Jack Grealish. What a hit. Lovely finish from Grealish in the 49th minute. He smacked it into the ground and it flies in. GAME ON!

GOALLL! Right on half time West Ham double their lead. Bowen is played in over the top again, stays just onside and slots home. This stadium goes bonkers. 2-0 to West Ham. The Man City players, staff and fans look stunned. They did not see this coming.

Man City went close a few times as Gabriel Jesus wriggled free in the box but West Ham are blocking shots all over the place.

The atmosphere is incredible here. This place is bouncing.

GOALLLL! Oh wow. West Ham lead. A hook over the top catches out the Man City defense and Jarrod Bowen has so much to do. But he runs past Ederson and finishes brilliantly from a tight angle. 1-0 to West Ham.

Rodri’s deflected shot is dangerous and goes out for a corner. Moments later Fernandinho drills over.

In the 16th minute Mark Noble gets a round of applause here. West Ham’s No. 16 sits on the bench taking it all in. He was in tears before the game when he walked out onto the pitch.

The linesman goes down after Aymeric Laporte stands on his foot. After a brief stoppage he’s back up on his feet. West Ham’s fans sing ‘are you Grealish in disguise?’ as the banter flows here at the London Stadium. A good time is being had by all. Well, except the poor linesman. He’ll run it off…

KICK OFF: Manchester City have had most of the ball but West Ham have had the better chance. Craig Dawson nods a header just over. That was a free header. He should have hit the target.

Lovely scenes before the game here as Mark Noble gets a proper sendoff from the fans here at West Ham. Lovely moment as Mr. West Ham has tears in his eyes.

Hello from east London! Huge game here today as Man City aim to take a huge step towards winning the Premier League title, while West Ham want to win to try and finish in sixth place and qualify for the Europa League.

Also, after 18 years in West Ham’s first team after coming through their academy, this is Mark Noble’s final home game as a Hammer and there is a real party atmosphere to celebrate his incredible career.

West Ham team news, injuries, lineup

Michail Antonio and Craig Dawson have trained after knocks, so they should be okay. Said Benrahma is a doubt while Angelo Ogbonna is out.

Manchester City team news, injuries, lineup

Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte are looking to recover quickly from knocks, while John Stones, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker are all out for the final few games of the season. That could force Pep Guardiola to play Rodri at center back with Nathan Ake as City juggle a slew of defensive injuries.

West Ham vs Manchester City preview

For Man City the equation is simple: win their final two games of the season and they will be crowned Premier League champions. Guardiola’s side beat Newcastle 5-0 and Wolves 5-1 in their last two outings as they look angry and fired up after their defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinal. That said, defensive injuries have piled up with Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and John Stones out for the season, while Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte both limped off during their win at Wolves in midweek. City have won five PL games in a row (scoring 22 and conceding two in the process) as they power towards a fourth Premier League title in the last five seasons. That said, these defensive injuries could cause them problems against West Ham and Villa in their final two games as both of those sides are more than capable of causing an upset. They have a three-point lead over second-place Liverpool (and a seven-goal advantage on goal differential) but one slip and Liverpool will be right back in this.

As for West Ham their focus is all on one thing: sixth place. If they beat Man City and win on the final day at Brighton then barring a crazy goal difference swing with Manchester United they will finish in sixth for the second season in a row. That would be an incredible achievement for David Moyes’ side who beat Norwich 4-0 last time out and responded well to their own European semifinal defeat as they lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in disappointing fashion after a dream Europa League run this season. This game will be Mark Noble’s final home game as a Hammer as he calls time on his 18-year career at the end of this campaign so Declan Rice and Co. will want to send off the club captain and West Ham legend in style.

Bukayo Saka leads England to 2-0 win over Ukraine in EURO qualifying


Bukayo Saka scored a goal and set up Harry Kane for another as England beat Ukraine 2-0 in a UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday.

England was without Phil Foden, who had his appendix removed, and several others but was minimally troubled over 90 minutes.

It was an extremely emotional atmosphere in London as the war rages on across Ukraine following the Russia invasion just over a year ago. The English Football Association gave away close to 1,000 free tickets to Ukrainians who were forced to flee their country and resettle with families in the UK.

The United Kingdom have been one of Ukraine’s key partners in the fight against Russian forces. Over 4,200 Ukraine fans were estimated in the away end at Wembley. This match was Ukraine’s first of 2023, as they narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup after losing to Wales in a playoff last summer.

Key storylines, in-form players

The last time this nations met England ran out 4-0 winners in the quarterfinals of EURO 2020. They will be the heavy favorites in this game but Ukraine should not be underestimate as the No. 26 ranked team in the world have the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykhailo Mudryk, and Vitalii Mykolenko all playing in the Premier League.

England’s forwards ran riot in the first half against Italy with Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka sensational, plus Jude Bellingham’s driving runs from midfield give this Three Lions side an extra dimension.

Roman Yaremchuk offesr real quality in up top while Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko is the heartbeat of this Ukraine side and Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk will drive the left side in front of Everton’s Vitalii Mykolenko.

Kevin Paredes scores spectacular goal as US U20s fall to England (video)


A day after the United States men’s national team pumped home seven goals against Grenada, Wolfsburg phenom Kevin Paredes showed them a bit of what could be in store for the program.

The U.S. U-20 men ultimately fell 4-2 to England in Marbella, Spain, on Saturday, but Paredes scored an acrobatic goal before cuing up an Owen Wolff finish to tantalize American fans.

Paredes, still a teenager until early May, made his U-20 debut going 68 minutes on Wednesday as the Baby Yanks were smacked 4-0 by France in a friendly.

He’d find the scoresheet twice via his goal and assist against England, however, and both showed off the technique and power that has USMNT fans tickled by the potential of the left-sided man.

Paredes’ goal is the stuff of wonder, a scissor kick goal to finish off a wonderful turnover-and-counter. He left DC United for Wolfsburg last season, making two appearances before really finding his footing this season.

Wolfsburg’s called his name 18 times this season, 16 of those coming in the Bundesliga, and Paredes has responded with a goal and two assists. He’s appeared in nine of Wolfsburg’s last 10 matches, missing once for illness.

Leeds’ Mateo Joseph scored a brace for Leeds, while Chelsea starlet Harvey Vale and Liverpool’s Jarell Quansah also bagged goals in the win.

The U.S. U-20s finish the international break with a friendly against Serbia on Tuesday.

Jack McGlynn forces a turnover and drives the 18 before laying off for Wolff.

The Austin FC kid’s cross is hammered home by Paredes with a scissor kick.

Owen Wolff backheel goal video: Kevin Paredes assist for 2-2

Paredes then turned provider for Wolff after the Baby Yanks drove the ball from the back through the midfield with Colorado Rapids product Darren Yapi helping it along to Hajduk Split phenom Rokas Pukstas.

Pukstas, 18 and a squad regular, found the Wolfsburg man on the right. Paredes then dribbled inside from the right, finding Wolff for an improvised backheel finish.

Following their 7-1 thumping of Grenada on Friday, the USMNT is in good shape and interim head coach Anthony Hudson will likely rotate his first-choice back four back into the lineup.
