Manchester City's best goals against West Ham United

Manchester City head to the London Stadium this afternoon knowing victory over West Ham United will put them on the precipice of the Premier League title.

Pep Guardiola’s side are three points clear of Liverpool with just two games remaining after Kevin De Bruyne scored four goals against Wolves on Wednesday. Their mission is simple: get four points from their final two league games and they will be crowned champions.

West Ham are still reeling from their heartbreaking defeat in the Europa League semi-finals but the Hammers did recover with a thumping win over Norwich last weekend - a first victory in five Premier League matches.

David Moyes’s side still have plenty to play as they look to get back into Europe next term, with just three points separating them from sixth-placed Manchester United, who travel to Crystal Palace on the final day of the season.

Follow all the action from a crucial clash at the London Stadium below after the conclusion of Tottenham vs Burnley:

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has explained his disappointed after a ‘frustrating’ afternoon at Goodison Park.

He told Sky Sports: “Very frustrating. We started so well. A big decision has gone against us and it was difficult from there. We got the lead and we were defending, defending but unfortunately it went against us today.”

Speaking about his goal, he added: It came off me but unfortunately it hasn’t amounted to anything. A lot of disappointment having given so much today but we have to go again Thursday. We want to do it for ourselves, the manager and the fans.

“We dug deep. We showed spirit and we grafted. It is a long time to keep defending. We just have to pick ourselves up but we have the opportunity on Thursday to go again.

“It’s still in our hands. The chat after the game was positive. We have to rest and recover and work as hard as we possibly can on Thursday.”

Brentford matchwinner Rico Henry has given his reaction to their comeback win over Everton at Goodison Park.

He told Sky Sports: “It was a battle. Thomas Frank said it was going to be hostile. They came out fast. The manager said we had to match the intensity and that’s what we did.

“After that [red card] we had more possession. We knew we had to dig in there and stick together.

“Thomas Frank asked me to push on a bit when they went a man down and it paid off. He said keep moving the ball. We had to be patient.

“That’s our goal, we want to finish in the top 10. We’ll bring it to Leeds.”

Everton need three points from their final two matches to secure their safety. Their final fixtures are at home to Crystal Palace and away to Arsenal.

Burnley travel to Aston Villa and host Newcastle.

Leeds travel to Brentford.

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

A disappointing afternoon for Everton. Frank Lampard is going to have to go again on Thursday evening if his side are to secure the Premier League survival.

FT: Everton 2-3 Brentford

Full-time: That’s the final whistle. It’s a damaging defeat for Everton who have failed in their bid to secure Premier League safety.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s opener got things off to the perfect start for Frank Lampard’s men. But in the 18th minute they were then reduced to 10 men when Jarrad Branthwaite was sent off for preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity

A Seamus Coleman own goal levelled for Brentford, before Richarlison earned and scored a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

The Everton supporters hoped their side could hold on after the break but it wasn’t to be. Goals from Yoane Wissa and Rico Henry clinched all three points for Thomas Frank’s side.

Salomon Rondon was sent off late on as Everton were reduced to nine men. And they could not muster an equaliser as they remain two points above the relegation zone with two matches remaining.

Everton 2-3 Brentford

90+2 mins: Mykolenko sends a cross straight out of play and that may well be all she wrote for Everton.

Brentford come forward with Eriksen. He lays it off to Mbeumo who smashes it against Holgate for a throw-in to the visitors.

Everton 2-3 Brentford

90 mins: So close to 4-2. Mbeumo digs out a cross to the back post for Henry. He nods it across to Eriksen whose driven effort is cleared off the line by Holgate.

Four minutes of stoppage time to be played. Everton couldn’t, could they?

RED CARD! Everton 2-3 Brentford (Rondon, 88)

88 mins: Straight off the bench and straight down the tunnel!

He was only on the field for four minutes but Salomon Rondon has just been dismissed. A horrific two-footed lunge on Henry has resulted in a straight red card.

Everton down to NINE men for the final few minutes.
