Goals from Ruben Dias and John Stones on either side of an Antonio equalizer gave City a 2-1 win that extended our lead at the top – ahead of this weekend’s games – to 13

It also means that we are now unbeaten in 27 games – one of which doesn’t match the club’s record of 28

The first half hour of the game was incoherent by City’s high standards The pace was slower than recently and there were a number of unusual, misplaced passes

In fact, the Premier League top runner hadn’t fired any shots on goal in the first 30 minutes – but the first real quality moment changed all that when Kevin De Bruyne looked on the right after his left foot and then a great ball in the Hammers six-yard box where Ruben Dias scored his first goal for the club

The well-organized and solid visitors neared an equilibrium when Antonio hit the outside of the post when a reminder of their potential threat was required Their next attack resulted in a gate

City lost possession near the center line, got out of position and as the Hammers worked the ball out to the right, Jesse Lingard and Antonio aimed Coufal’s low cross at goal from close range

The second half was similar West Ham camped in the last third and City lacked the usual zipper, although a midday kick after a weekday Champions League game was hardly helpful

But this group of gamers know how to dig deep when they need to, and in the 68th In the minute, City were back in front when Oleks Zinchenko played it to Riyad Mahrez and his low cross swept into the middle by John Stones to make it 2-1 and wrap three points
