Final-Time: West Ham United 1-1 Manchester City

And that's that!

Good football, well-taken goals, good defending from both teams. Generally a very enjoyable game of football.

Michail Antonio and Phil Foden the scorers as West Hame continue their great run of form.

GOAL: West Ham United 1-1 Manchester City

And we have an equaliser.

Great performance so far from Cancelo now capped off with an assist. It took just seven minutes for Phil Foden to make his mark on the game.

Meanwhile, Michail Antonio is off with Andriy Yarmolenko replacing him. Have to ask the question - what's going on with Sebastien Haller?

48' Rodri's shot deflected by Soucek for a corner.

It was cleared and the Hammers moved quickly for a counter-attack, but Kyle Walker got to the ball before Antonio and stopped the attack.

45' And we're back underway.

Just one change at half-time, Phil Foden replaced Sergio Aguero for the visitors.

Half-Time: West Ham United 1-0 Manchester City

45 minutes gone, West Ham United (un)surprisingly leading.

Great goal from Michail Antonio the only goal so far, but the Hammers have been on top for a good period of the game.
13:053 months ago
31' Anthony Taylor has already made some questionable decisions.

First, the earlier mentioned chance for Antonio was actually a foul by Garcia but wasn't even looked at by VAR.

Later, Declan Rice broke through on a counter before being pulled back by Ilkay Gundogan - no yellow card for the German international.

And finally, Sergio Aguero tripped over Pablo Fornals' feet and somehow won a free-kick.

25' Two close chances!

First, Antonio was put through on goal but Garcia managed to keep him away with a last-ditch tackle.

Two minutes later Joao Cancelo put a great ball in across West Ham's box, but Riyad Mahrez's shot wasn't powerful enough and Fabiański was able to catch it on the line.

GOAL: West Ham United 1-0 Manchester City


Great recovery from Tomas Soucek who then laid it off for Coufal whose his cross for Michail Antonio was inch-perfect.

And what did the striker do? Pulled off an overhead kick. Great start from the Hammers!
12:463 months ago
14' Great pass from Eric Garcia to Ruben Dias, but the centre-back wasn't able to control and Vladimir Coufal was there to clear.
12:443 months ago
13' Good buildup play from Man City, but Ilkay Gundogan dragged his shot wide.

Good game so far but neither team managed to create a clear-cut chance.

Player to watch

Undoubtedly, Man City's squad is filled out with players who can win games on their own. But our player to watch is Raheem Sterling. 

The Englishman scored a hat-trick against West Ham one year ago and has eight goals in 11 appearances against the Hammers.

In the 2020/21 season, he's already on two goals and one assist in four games.

Previous encounters

Head-to-head record looks very positive for Manchester City as since January 2016 they've won every single game against the Hammers - currently sitting on ten in a row.

Since March 2009, West Ham beat the Citizens only twice - in October 2014 and September 2015.
20:143 months ago

Current form

The hosts are coming into the game off a record-breaking 3-3 draw against Tottenham Hotspur, which was their seventh point in the previous three games.

The visitors, having never lost at the London Stadium, will look to turn their season around after a 5-2 loss to Leicester City and a 1-1 draw against Leeds United that left them 11th in the League table.
