English Premier League
Result: West Ham United 1-1 Manchester City
Date: 24 October 2020
Venue: Olympic Stadium
Manchester City's stuttering form in the Premier League continued after dropping points at West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
Man City kept the same side that beat Porto in midweek, with Kevin De Bruyne only fit enough to start on the bench while the Hammers were also unchanged, with Manuel Lanzini, who snatched a last-gasp equaliser against Tottenham Hotspur remaining on the bench.
The Citizens were probing without much penetration in the early exchanges but it was Michail Antonio who gave the hosts the lead in the 18th minute with an incredible overhead kick from Vladimir Coufal's cross.
Joao Cancelo fired in a cut-back across goal that evaded goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski but Riyad Mahrez reacted late, with his attempt gathered by the Polish shot-stopper on 24 mnutes.
Pep Guardiola's charges were lacking a sense of urgency in the latter phase of the first stanza, with United comfortable defending in numbers and not allowing City to turn the defence around.
Guardiola made a tactical change straight from the break, bringing on Phil Foden in place of Sergio Aguero and the young English midfielder made an impact five minutes later, as he equalised with a strike at the near post after controlling Cancelo's cross well at the near post.
De Bruyne was finally introduced in the last 22 minutes by City in place of Bernardo Silva, with the visitors trying to find a way through West Ham's low block in search of the winner.
Raheem Sterling had a big chance to snatch the winner for the Citizens in the last five minutes after going clear inside the box but Fabianski made a crucial save in a one-on-one situation before the Polish goalkeeper denied Mahrez from point blank range in stoppage time as the sides shared the spoils.
