West Ham are yet to confirm their Premier League status at the bottom end of the table, and with Manchester City and Manchester United to come in their final four games, there’s every chance that they could be dragged into a late-season relegation dogfight if they aren’t careful.
And there was no sign that their opponents this weekend are taking their feet off the gas despite having wrapped up the Premier League table already. With little else to play for, Pep Guardiola’s side smashed Swansea 5-0 last weekend, and will still be looking to break the Premier League points record come the end of the season.
