Man. City 2-1 West Ham: Hammers Undone By Second Half Double At Man City


David Silva scored with seven minutes to go as leaders Manchester City came from behind to record a 2-1 win over West Ham United and extend their winning run in the league to 13 matches, equalling the Premier League record for consecutive wins in a single season.

The match seemed to heading for a draw after Angelo Ogbonna’s header just before half-time was cancelled out by Nicolas Otamendi’s close-range goal on 57 minutes.

Manchester City piled on the pressure and after Adrian made a string of saves from Leroy Sane and substitute Gabriel Jesus, he was beaten when Silva diverted Kevin De Bruyne’s cross into the net.

Diafra Sakho missed a late chance to equalise for the visitors but Man City held on to maintain their eight-point lead at the top of the table, while West Ham remain in the bottom three, three points from safety.
