West Ham United v Manchester City live stream, Sunday 15 May, 2pm BST
Manchester City will be looking to take another step closer to the Premier League title when they face West Ham on Sunday.
In the middle of the week, the pressure was on the champions. Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Tuesday saw the Reds level with City at the top of the standings. A potential banana peel loomed in the form of a trip to Molineux to take on a Wolves team that had denied Chelsea a win in their previous encounter.
In the end, City scoffed at suggestions they could have a tough night on Wednesday. Kevin De Bruyne was the star of the show with a remarkable four-goal lead, but City were superior to their hosts in all areas. A 5-1 win put them three points away from the Reds, who will face the FA Cup final this weekend. That means City will have the chance to open a six-point lead at the London Stadium.
However, West Ham is not yet on the beach. The win on Sunday would see them climb above Manchester United and climb to sixth place – the last qualifying spot for the Europa League. The Hammers made it to the semi-finals of this season’s competition and are eager to return to Europe next season.
Aymeric Laporte was forced out in the game against Wolves, leaving City without a central half this weekend. Neither Ruben Dias nor John Stones are expected to recover in time, while stand-in defender Fernandinho is questionable. Nathan Ake was therefore able to start next to Rodri in the heart of the rear. Kyle Walker is out too.
West Ham will have to do without Angelo Ogbonnna and Said Benrahma on Sunday, but Mikhail Antonio and Craig Dawson hope to be fit in time.
Kick-off is at 2 p.m. BST On sunday 15 may, and the game will be broadcast live by Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League† See below for international broadcast options.

If you’re abroad for a round of Premier League matches, your domestic on-demand services are annoyingly not working – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You’ll be blocked from watching it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to see the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is available. To get around that, all you need to do is purchase a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, which means that the service cannot determine where you are or automatically block the service you paid for. All the information that goes in between is completely encrypted – and that’s a result.
