Emotional scenes at the Etihad as fans stream on to the pitch to celebrate with their heroes. That's all from me, and that's all from the Premier League until August. Thanks for joining us for a rollercoaster of a campaign. Can anyone stop City next season? Let me know on Twitter @Reda_Eurosport.

90+3
MANCHESTER CITY HAVE WON THE PREMIER LEAGUE! Manuel Pellegrini's first league title in a decade in Europe. Bravo, City!
90+2
Three minuted added time so City are just 90s from the title...
90+1
Joe Cole slips away and he's in but Hart flies out and the former England man puts it wide!
90'
 
Aguero caught Noble late, and Noble reacted. Both will be in trouble but I'm not sure the ref fully saw it... Bookings for both.
89'
IT'S ALL KICKING OFF AT CITY! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!
88'
City have a free-kick which is nicely swung over by Nasri but it skims Negredo's head. Still City's ball until Kompany gives away a free-kick.
87'
Meanwhile, Newcastle are down to nine men as Dummett hacks at Suarez. Means nothing now.
86'
Nasri with a turn and shot from range but he curls this one high and wide.
Manchester City Substitution
85'
 
CITY SUB: Toure limps off for Negredo, meaning City will go back to two up top.
84'
Negredo is warming up and should make a late entry.
83'
Our web users can enjoy this snap of Kompany and City celebrating goal no.2.
82'
Toure is limping a bit after an awkward stumble while trying to run in on goal. Not good for Ivory Coast but he seems okay.
81'
Both sides are going through the motions now. City cannot wait to hoist the trophy aloft.
West Ham United Substitution
80'
Adrian needs a bit of treatment after that heavy landing. He's ok though and will take the kick himself.
79'
Nasri with another strike from range, deflected up in the air and Adrian should claim - but he takes a tumble over Aguero's back and lands heavily.
78'
City still have it, stroking the ball about with ease as they begin that grandstand finish I was talking about...
77'
FINE SAVE ADRIAN! Nasri with a fizzing low drive but the Spanish keeper bats it away! What a ball from Toure too, a scooped delight.
Manchester City Substitution
76'
Lovely City counter but Aguero overcooks it when it was gasping for an early finish - in the end he slips and falls and West Ham clear.
75'
This match has slowed right down now. West Ham seem aware they have no hope of getting anything out of this, while City are playing it safe. As Liverpool should have done against Palace...
74'
 
CITY SUB: Silva is replaced by James Milner, who knows exactly what to do, and will do it.
72'
Our web users can enjoy this pictue of Joe Hart being clattered by Kevin Nolan earlier.
West Ham United Substitution
71'
 
West Ham make a change as Carlton Cole gets a run out. Carroll taken off.
69'
STAT: City have had 70% possession. Dominant.
Manchester City Substitution
68'
 
Fernandinho gets a run-out for City. Dzeko makes way.
67'
Newcastle are down to 10 men by the way - Shola Amoebi sent off for dissent apparently.
67'
WHAT A MISS AGUERO! Open goal from Zabaleta's cross but he mis-times his finish and it hits his ankle!
66'
Liverpool have scored but Sturridge isn't doing the dance. They need City to capitulate now.
65'
JUST WIDE SILVA! Took a deflection so a corner to City, whose fans appeared to react after Liverpool's equaliser. Not sure why - if West Ham score three I'm wearing a full Liverpool kit tomorrow.
64'
Liverpool have scored, by the way. Agger for 1-1. #mutedcelebration.
West Ham United Substitution
63'
 
WEST HAM SUB: Jarvis on for Nolan.
62'
Just wide from Aguero after another fine cross from Zabaleta. Decent header but just off target.
60'
 
Demichelis sees yellow for a foul on Downing on the West Ham right. One thing that could hurt City is a loss of discipline.
59'
City have definitely taken their foot off the gas as they sit back and let West Ham come at them. All very easy for Pellegrini's boys now.
58'
Here is a pic of Nasri celebrating his goal (web users only).
57'
McCartney attacks the corner at the near post but he loops the header high and wide.
56'
The second ball is dangerous from McCartney though, and Hart has to fly across and tip it behind with Carroll set to pounce at the far post. Corner.
55'
It takes an age to sort the West Ham wall and eventually the ball is cleared easily enough.
54'
Kompany with a foul that could easily have seen him booked. Free-kick West Ham on the right.
52'
City can afford to sit deep for a bit and conserve their legs for what one assumes will be a celebratory late show today. West Ham knocking it about but with little belief.
51'
All very muted at Anfield, apparently. Poor fellows.
50'
City fans can afford to do the Poznan now. Liverpool take note - nobody likes it premature.
49'
 
GOAL MANCHESTER CITY! AND IT COULDN'T GO TO A BETTER MAN! Kompany smashes it home as the corner ricochets around the box. 2-0, game over.
Manchester City Goal

Bottom Center

48'
Corner City, which Garcia again attacks, but blocked for another. You can see why he was selected for this game - his height is problematic.
47'
City again play their way out of trouble, although to be fair there have only been a couple of Hammers threats all game.
46'
The second half is underway. City just need to keep it tight and dominate the ball. Shouldn't be too hard against this uninspiring West Ham side.
45+2
Half-time and City have one hand on the title. 1-0, with Liverpool trailing by the same scoreline.
45+2
Toure on the right, inside to Silva who drives a low shot that hits Carroll and cannons off the woodwork!!
45+1
Carroll feels he was pushed by Kompany as he tried to head the ball on but the ref ignores him. This is the only minute of added time.
45'
The visitors get a breather as Garcia heads the corner wide. Looks like 1-0 at the break but it could be four.
44'
SHOULD HAVE BEEN TWO! Aguero and Zabaleta trade positions as the striker hares down the right, putting in a low cross for Zabaleta to try and bundle in - the finish is blocked though and it's another corner.
43'
Nasri with the free-kick - and it's headed JUST wide by Aguero! Garcia and Kompany slid in too, with Kolarov annoyed with Aguero as he had a free-header!
42'
Nasri has held on to the ball for a full 90 seconds before drawing a foul from McCartney. Great close control and strength to hold off the challenges. He's having a blinder.
41'
City have a corner on the left. A second before the break could end all this. Dzeko hits the deck but he slipped and doesn't appeal, West Ham clearing.
40'
Meanwhile at Anfield, Sturridge misses a free header, sending it wide from six yards. Ouch.
39'
Adrian got a faint touch but not enough as Nasri's wonderful strike fizzed in off the post. City very much in charge now.
Manchester City Goal

Bottom Left

38'
 
GOAL MANCHESTER CITY! NASRI WITH A SCREAMER! A wonderful strike from the Frenchman, who swings it inside the far post frmo 25 yards.
36'
Here's a pic of Nasri in action from our mates at AFP (web only):
35'
Unusually for Silva, he telegraphs a through ball and West Ham can break - superb tackle from Demichelis on Downing though. Excellent tackle.
34'
West Ham scramble that corner away but City still have control of the ball. Dare I say it but this is tiki-taka with a bit of muscle. If only they'd hit on this consistency earlier this season, they could have been in with a shout in Europe...
33'
Garcia meets the corner with a header but that too is deflected behind. City piling it on!
32'
Lovely footwork from Silva in the box, somehow wriggling a shooting opportunity. Blocked for a corner.
31'
 
City are furious with what they see as a malicious challenge from Nolan, who is booked.
30'
West Ham with a rare spell of possession as Hart does well to claim the cross, wiped out by Nolan in the process...
29'
An uncharacteristically heavy touch from Toure sees what should have been an incisive counter attack stall. City still have it though as Nasri retrieves the ball...
28'
Another wonderful City attack, one-touch passing, gorgeous angles and a backheel from Silva but in the end it trickles harmlessly to Adrian.
27'
Meanwhile, Newcastle should have made it 2-0 after Gouffran went clean through but he finishes straight at Mignolet.
26'
Brilliant play by Aguero to hook the ball inside of a challenge on the byline, cutting it back to Dzeko who is off balance as he shoots over. They link up so well these two.
25'
The corner is cleared for a throw but this is incessant pressure from City, who are totally controlling this match. Will have to be a smash-and-grab for West Ham to get anything out of this.
24'
OOOOH! Inches over from Kolarov, who hit a thunderbolt with his exceptional left foot, from all of 30 yards! Took a touch off Adrian, a corner! Fine save then!
23'
Chance for a City counter - here somes Silva, who races into the left before slowing it down for Toure to join in. Easy on the eye, this.
22'
Lovely turn by Nasri and great strength to hold off McCartney, who was fouling him. He feeds Dzeko who rushes his shot, hitting it miles off target.
21'
About a foot wide from Toure, who spins an inventive first-time shot from the edge of the box.
20'
Almost a lovely goal for City, a sweeping one-touch move but the Aguero shot is blocked by his own man and Adrian gathers.
19'
McCartney bundles it wide as City go close but check this out - Martin Skrtel has scored an own goal! Newcastle lead at Anfield!!

In the Liverpool game, Suarez takes a free-kick too quickly for the ref's liking and his incredible lobbed goal is disallowed. #itsaconspiracy.

17'
City fan seen with a transistor radio to listen to the Liverpool game. Strangely enough it's a young lad - he had his smartphone in another hand. Damned hipsters!!
16'
The lack of Kompany didn't help City there as West Ham clear easily. Silva wriggles into the box now but again West Ham clear.
15'
Toure with a driving run to earn his team a corner on the right. They're a danger in the air but West Ham are a big side too. Kompany off the pitch sorting his boots out.
14'
Looking at the replay is inconclusive - for me Zabaleta tripped over his own foot there. Hard to tell, and thus the ref probably correct to give Diame the benefit of the doubt.
13'
Zabaleta feels he should have had a penalty after a challenge from Diame but nothing given! I didn't see much in that to be honest, less contentious than the Noble handball, which Atkinson was correct to wave away!
12'
Downing with a great run down the right, he cuts is back for Nolan, but the Hammers skipper leans into it and spanks the ball to Oldham.
11'
OOOOH! Would have been a stunner as Silva met Zabaleta's cross with a cracking volley, but half a yard over the bar!
10'
City with a couple of half chances as Silva just misses his finish and Toure has a follow-up blocked!
9'
Shout for a handball off Noble as Zabaleta's cross spun off the Hammers midfielder's boot into his arm! It did appear to strike hand but would have been completely unintentional.
8'
Fine low cross by Kolarov but hacked away by a sliding Tomkins! City are probing and probing...
7'
City are clicking into their groove now. Pass and move, dominating possession, patient build-up...
6'
A nice floated ball sets Nasri off but he makes the mistake of letting it bounce - in these conditions that was an error, the ball skidding behind for a goal kick.
5'
Most of you are backing City to see this through. While they are favourites, there are no certainties in the Premier League!

@Reda_Eurosport Man City are too determined to capitulate. Pellegrini is a brilliant manager, an thoroughly deserves this trophy.

4'
City play their way out of a hole quite beautifully but their attack ultimately breaks down.
3'
City now doing what City do, laying camp outside the West Ham box until Zabaleta - who has been brilliant on the overlap recently - springs down the right; he is off balance though and crosses into the side netting.
2'
McCartney again surges away but Zabaleta's challenge is strong and fair. Throw to West Ham, who have started brightly!
1'
Nasri with an early trip on McCartney as the full-back threatened to get away. Pellegrini is wearing a fetching anorak today. Prefer him in a suit.
1'
AND THEY'RE OFF! Can City do it? The rain is DRIVING down at the Etihad. Nerve-jangling stuff!
14:59
City's players are hugging on the pitch pre-kickoff. One thing that has improved under Pellegrini (and without Tevez and Balotelli) is team spirit - funny that!
14:58
Martin Atkinson is the ref today. He was in charge when City won the 2011 FA Cup and this season's League Cup.
14:57
Sam Allardyce: "From a neutral point of view, everybody would like to see Liverpool win it. From a personal point of view I'd like to see Steven Gerrard win it." - speak for yourself, Big Man.
14:56
As it gets closer, the countdown will be more frequent. And why not? Another lovely Opta fact - this is the first time that West Ham have played away from home on the final day of a Premier League season since 2006-07 – on that occasion they won 1-0 in Manchester against City’s rivals United. Spoooooky!!
14:55
FACTS: Man City have lost just one of their last 13 Barclays Premier League meetings with West Ham (W9 D3); The Hammers have won just two of their last 25 away league games against Manchester City, losing 20 and drawing three.
14:50
Most neutrals seem to think City will see this through - but stranger things have happened in football...

@Reda_Eurosport although in football anything can happen,I really don't see Man City letting the title slip from their hands #EPL #finalday

14:45
Pellegrini (cont.): “We are thinking not of winning one point but just winning the match and the best way to do it is to play the way we always do. Every team must play every game to win. It doesn't matter in which conditions they are playing, every team must want to win."
14:40
Manuel Pellegrini: "After so many years, it is very important to control your emotions because when you have to take decisions under emotion normally you do it the wrong way. I think it is very important for the manager to be calm, to try to repeat what we did the whole year. I expect to win.”

Of course it's all about City today - but Big Sam wants to show his side can have a say in something this season.

BIG SAM: "It's about showing we're committed to the end of the last game, even though we're safe against what's looking like being champions

14:25
City fans getting excited about this. Can their boys keep their cool?
14:20
Alas this match is all about City - West Ham can be the spoilers though, and none more so than former Liverpool striker Andy Carroll, who could help out his former employers today, as could Stewart Downing. There are no surprises for West Ham, although Winston Reid starts instead of James Collins in defence.
14:15
So the big news is that Sergio Aguero STARTS for Manchester City, which is a huge boost for the Premier League leaders. Interestingly Javi Garcia starts for City, with Fernandinho on the bench.
14:10
TEAMS - Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (C), Demichelis, Kolarov, Garcia, Toure, Nasri, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko; Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Clichy, Milner, Fernandinho, Negredo, Jovetic // West Ham: Adrian, Reid, McCartney, Nolan (c), Tomkins, Carroll, Taylor, Noble, O'Brien, Diame, Downing; Subs: Jarvis, Armero, Vaz Te, Collins, Jaaskelainen, C.Cole, J.Cole
14:05
BREAKING NEWS - SERGIO AGUERO STARTS! That is all.
14:00
Hello and welcome to THE BIG ONE! No, it's not Big Sam's waistline, but the crucial Premier League finale between champions elect Manchester City, and mid-table West Ham. Will Andy Carroll do his old club a favour? Will City keep their nerve? Find out HERE!
