Sam Allardyce has reassured Liverpool that West Ham United will travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday aiming to “spoil” Manchester City’s title party.

The Citizens, who are two points clear at the top of the table, need just a point against the Hammers to win their second Premier League crown in three years.

We don’t want to go there and lie down, we want to go there and give a fantastic account of ourselves

Liverpool’s only hope of lifting the trophy relies on West Ham beating City and the Reds overcoming Newcastle United at Anfield on the final day.

But Allardyce insists that his side will head to Manchester looking to disrupt City’s title momentum.

“We know we’re in the Premier League next year, [so] let’s go and try to spoil Manchester City’s party,” said Allardyce.

“We don’t want to go there and lie down, we want to go there and give a fantastic account of ourselves.

“They are the best team at home in the league and they have great players so we will need every player on top of their form.

“I watched City against [Aston] Villa [on Wednesday] night and we all know Man City in full cry are very difficult to play against.

“We have to make sure we cope as a team, build a resilience and frustration and create a chance or two when we have possession.”
