Manchester City leave it late again in 2-1 win over West Ham

Manchester City leave it late again in 2-1 win over West Ham

Once again, Manchester City left it late as they defeated West Ham United 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Manchester City’s vulnerability from set pieces as shown in their mid-week win over Southampton once again came to bear when Italian defender, Angelo Ogbonna headed in from a corner to put West Ham ahead on the stroke of the first half.

Nicolas Otamendi levelled the scores 11 minutes into the second half before David Silva’s late strike handed Manchester city a 2-1 win to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table

For a third time in a row, Pep Guardiola’s men have had to struggle for a late winner having secured late winners in their last two previous games against Huddersfield and Southampton respectively.

The win has now placed City’s EPL winning run at 13 games, equalling Chelsea’s 2016-17 and Arsenal’s 2001-02 record of 13 unbeaten games in the league. Pep Guardiola’s men have also now re-establish their eight-point advantage at the top.
