The 2021-22 English Premier League (EPL) enters its penultimate matchday, as Gameweek 37 will be played on Sunday. The race for the title is still on, as defending champion Manchester City will be up against West Ham United to put a hand on the trophy. Meanwhile, the other teams are also fighting for European spots, intensifying the battle this week. On the same note, we predict the winners of the big games.

Will City Hammer West Ham?
Although West Ham is known as the Hammers here, it could be the opposite as it hosts City on Sunday. The Cityzens will be desperate to win, as a victory would virtually seal its title, while a defeat could put it in a tight race with Liverpool. On the other hand, the Hammers are fighting for a UEFA Europa League (UEL) spot, as it will look to rise to the sixth with a win, whereas a defeat will more or less make it contained to the seventh spot.
Prediction: City wins 3-1
