LIVE streaming: Man City vs West Ham on May 11, 2014 - EPL title decider

May 11, 2014 By Abdullah Zubair
League leaders Man City will take on West Ham in the final match of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, the 11th of May.

Preview: City poised to wrap up the title at Etihad

A 4-0 thumping of Aston Villa allowed City to leapfrog Liverpool at the top of the table and should they win their match on Sunday Man City can clinch their second league title in three seasons. Man City’s goal difference of 63 is 13 better than Liverpool’s and their superiority as far as the goal difference is concerned provides them with an added advantage. This implies that should Pellegrini’s men record a draw on Sunday, they would still be able to clinch the title.

 

Pellegrini’s arrival has massively benefited the City side and during his stint as manager of the Citizens, the Chilean tactician has promoted an attractive brand of football something which has settled well with the fans and has done wonders for his side. Man City took their tally to 100 goals in the league for the season last time out when they defeated Aston Villa.

The Villans maintained their resilience for most part of the game until a well worked team move ended with Dzeko scoring the first goal of the game on the 64th minute. The Bosnia-Herzegovina international scored his second of the game and his 16th Premier League goal of the season within eight minutes of his first. From that moment onwards City were in full control of the match and wrapped it up in emphatic fashion courtesy of some individual brilliance from Yaya Toure. The Ivorian set up Stevan Jovetic for the third goal with a well weighted pass and then added one himself as City cruised to a 4-0 victory.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini expressed his delight following the victory and also spoke of his team’s title chances. The Chilean further lauded his team’s style of play and claimed that playing attractive football is as important as winning the title itself.

"Now we can talk about the title because, if we win the next game, we are going to win the title," Pellegrini told the press.

"It will be very important not only for the title but in the way that we are going to win the title.

"I think that we have a style of play, I think that we are an attractive team, I think that we score many goals, that we are always thinking to score more goals and that for me has the same importance as the title."

"There are different ways to win titles; I choose this one. This one has attractive football, that fans enjoy the season. Maybe you can win titles in another way [but] for me it is very important, the aesthetic part of the game."

City’s emphatic form at home will give them a lot of confidence as they head into the final match of the season. The Citizens have won 16 of the 18 matches they have played at home turf in the league this campaign. However City’s title win in 2012 courtesy of a last ditch goal from Sergio Aguero is a reminder for the Citizens to take nothing for granted something which has been reiterated by Argentinean full back Pablo Zabaleta who expects a fiery encounter despite the fact that the Hammers have already secured their place in the Premier League.

"Nothing is done and we can't expect an easy game on Sunday," right-back Pablo Zabaleta said.

"They are safe but they have very good players. They are very good on the counterattack and are very tough also on set-pieces.”

West Ham on the other hand have not been on the best of runs and a portion of the fans have expressed their discontent on the direct style of play promoted by manager Sam Allardyce. The hammers ended the month of April with four consecutive defeats but kicked off May in a better fashion scoring a 2-0 victory over Tottenham thereby completing a league double over their London rivals.

Frenchman Kaboul was shown a red card early in the game and West Ham made full use of the man advantage scoring two goals courtesy of former Liverpool players Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing. Liverpool fans will be hoping both the players can put forth a similar showing on Sunday in order to enhance Liverpool’s chances of clinching the title.

Talismanic striker Sergio Aguero missed the last match against Aston Villa due to a hamstring injury he suffered in the match against Everton. The Argentinean is likely to make a return to the squad but it remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to start.  Jesus Navas and Matija Nastasic on the other hand are certain to miss the title decider.

Sam Allardyce on the other hand will have an almost fully fit squad to his expense with the exception of forward Marco Borriello who will continue to nurse his calf injury.
