Manchester City win record fourth English title in a row as Foden scores twice in 3-1 win over West Ham

  • Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 16 Premier League games against West Ham (W13 D3), since a 2-1 home loss in September 2015.

  • West Ham have lost 15 of their 17 Premier League away games against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, with the exceptions being a 1-1 draw (January 2008) and a 2-1 win (September 2015).

  • West Ham have conceded at least once in all 17 of their Premier League games at the Etihad Stadium – only Tottenham have played at a specific venue more in the competition without ever keeping a clean sheet (18 at Emirates Stadium).

  • Manchester City go into this match looking to become the first team in the history of the English top-flight to win four titles in a row. It would the sixth title overall for Pep Guardiola, with only Sir Alex Ferguson ever winning more titles in the top-flight (13).

  • Before their 1-0 defeat at Brentford last season, Manchester City had won their final league game in each of Pep Guardiola’s first six seasons in charge. They’ve not lost their final league game in consecutive campaigns since a run of three between 2005-06 and 2007-08.

  • West Ham have lost their final league game in each of the last two seasons, last doing so in three in a row between 2013-14 and 2015-16.

  • Manchester City are the only side yet to lose a home Premier League match this season (W13 D5). City are looking to remain unbeaten at home in a top-flight season for a fourth time, along with 1904-05, 1920-21 and 2011-12, while manager Pep Guardiola has only gone a full top-flight season unbeaten once before, with Barcelona in 2009-10.

  • West Ham have lost 5-2 at Crystal Palace and 5-0 at Chelsea in their last two Premier League away games; the last team to concede 5+ goals in three consecutive top-flight away games were Blackburn Rovers (April-August 1965), while West Ham last did so in April 1932.

  • Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne has six assists in Premier League final games – it’s the most of any current player, with only Nolberto Solano providing more in the competition’s history (7). De Bruyne’s assist for Haaland against Spurs on Tuesday took him to 112 in the Premier League, with only Ryan Giggs having more in the history of the competition (162).

  • This will be David Moyes’ 198th and final Premier League game in charge of West Ham – no permanent manager has a higher win rate for the Hammers in the competition than the Scotsman (37.1%, same as Alan Curbishley).
