Shades of 'Fergie time' about Manchester City's late victor

Shades of 'Fergie time' about Manchester City's late victor”

The Spain playmaker signed a contract extension at the Etihad Stadium this week and underlined his enduring worth to a club where he sits among the best ever to don the shirt by leaping to volley home Kevin De Bruyne's chipped cross at the back post seven minutes from time.

Free-scoring City found it hard to break down the well-organised Hammers after Angelo Ogbonnna's shock opener just before half-time, but they kept their heads and equalised through Nicolas Otamendi 12 minutes after the break before David Silva volleyed a fine victor with seven minutes left.

At Manchester City, Yaya reached a new level and was a true leader at the blue half of Manchester for years.

City have not lost a game since April, and face second-place rivals Manchester United next Sunday.

West Ham made it hard for the home side to break them down and Delph admits it is getting more hard as teams set out to stifle Pep Guardiola's normally free-scoring side.

Despite hogging possession, City's play lacked the tempo and incisiveness of their best work this season, with Adrian - starting due to Joe Hart's ineligibility against his parent club - making his first save of note when Silva sought the top corner from outside the area.

After another incident packed weekend of football, it's time to reveal 5 things we learned in Premier League game week 15. They moved too much.

"Hopefully we have no injuries and I wish that Paul could play against us". That is a lot. "You see how they run and how they fight, that's why we are so proud again".

"Then in the Community Shield, with two minutes to go we were going to penalties it was 2-2 against Manchester United at the time".

- City have won 10 points from losing positions in the Premier League this season, more than any other side.

"We've worked a bit on it".

If there was any remaining doubt as to whether David De Gea is the world's number one goalkeeper, the 27-year-old Spaniard's epic display against Arsenal on Saturday stamped all over it.

Fernandes is a different prospect entirely and it will be interesting to see how many more chances he gets in the weeks ahead. I thought most of it was outside the box. "I don't think Manchester United will be all at the back because it's a good game, and just like us they also need the result".

West Ham created the better chances than their opponents in the opening 45 minutes and had the opportunity to make Citizens pay for an apparent arrogance, with Michail Antonio wasting a glorious chance at the back post inside the first ten minutes.

"I always think we will get away". Our effort today was top.

"I don't mind him admitting it but the fact that he booked me and can't get it rescinded, I'll miss the next game", he said.
