West Ham vs Man City

Win this game and West Ham aren't guaranteed survival, lose and we aren't definitely relegated, however the game does have the feeling of a season decider and it is hard to see West Ham recovering if they lose this relegation battle at home. If we win this game we will escape the relegation zone, if Sheffield United are beaten at home by Arsenal.

Claudio Reyna and Joey Barton are out for Man City and Reo-Coker and Paul Konchesky for West Ham. Paul Dickov (toe) and Darius Vassell (groin) are also both major doubts for City. McCartney is likely to come in at left back for the Hammers and presumably Bowyer rather than the seemingly out of favour Mascherano will play in central midfield.

West Ham are defending an unbeaten home Premiership record against City of five wins and one draw. Man City's 0-1 victory over Sheffield United on Boxing Day was their first win in five and they go into this match in search of back-to-back victories for the first time in 49 Premiership matches.
