West Ham vs Man City LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction as Riyad Mahrez misses late penalty

Follow all the action from the London Stadium as City aim to move within one point of the title by beating the Hammers

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:

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

62 mins: BURNLEY HIT THE POST! Oh it’s a lovely move from the visitors and they go inches away from equalising!

Collins threads a nice ball to McNeil and he turns it onto Barnes who lets fly from the edge of the penalty area but it cannons back off the post!

Would have been a special goal. Tottenham under the cosh.

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

60 mins: How long before Mike Jackson makes a change? Wout Weghorst is warming up down on the touchline. He could be an option for the visitors.

Burnley send a free-kick towards the back post and Barnes nods it aimlessly behind for a goal kick.

Ben Davies is now down for Spurs. The hosts could do with a little break in play. It’s been a decent 15 minutes for the relegation-threatened side.

1652617357

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

58 mins: CHANCE! Tottenham nearly doubled their lead.

It starts with Sessegnon pressing Roberts and winning the ball in a dangerous area. He finds Son on the edge of the area and the South Korean lays it off to Kane who fires just over the bar.

It was 20 yards out but you’d have backed Kane to find the corner from there.

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

56 mins: Lucas picks up the ball in a pocket of space and works it out wide for Emerson. He sends it into the middle but Burnley clear at the near post.

Lucas, Bentancur and Emerson then work it wonderfully to move Spurs into the final third and it eventually drops for Kane but his effort is blocked and Bentancur then hammers it over the bar.

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

54 mins: This time it’s Sanchez who gets up to head clear and Lucas then draws the foul on the edge of his own box.

Jack Cork and Rodrigo Bentancur now embroiled in a flare up after Cork clips Hojbjerg when trying to get the ball back.

Tetchy among both sets of players - an atmosphere created following the awarding of that controversial penalty at the end of the first half.

1652617005

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

52 mins: There are a lot of nerves inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium right now. And they have not been eased by Burnley’s positive start to this second half.

Taylor sends a swinging cross to the back post and Roberts forces the corner off Sessegnon. Another chance for Burnley to load the box.

50 mins: Burnley on the front foot at the start of this second half as Cornet flicks a long ball on towards Barnes but it’s cleared away by Sessegnon who has been heavily involved since the break.

YELLOW! Burnley come forward once more and Lucas gets his legs tangled and gives away a foul.

It’s delivered into the box and Brownhill gets up highest but heads over from six yards out! Another big chance for the visitors.

1652616746

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

48 mins: No changes at the start of this second half as both managers look for their starting line-ups to to do the job for a little while longer.

A really silly challenge from Sessegnon. He bundles Roberts over on the far touchline and Burnley now have an opportunity to swing the ball into the box.

CHANCE! Burnley go close from the set-piece! Long leaps above Dier and heads a yard wide as Lloris scrambled across his goal. Warning for the hosts.

1652616572

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

46 mins: Back underway!

Here we go then with the second half. Can Spurs see it out to move fourth? Can Burnley fight back to move clear of the relegation zone?
