West Ham hold Manchester City to 1-1 draw.

Michail Antonio’s fantastic first-half goal gave David Moyes’ side a deserved point against Manchester City.

Antonio opened the scoring in the 17th minute when he received a cross from Vladimir Coufal and delivered an incredible overhead kick to give the Hammers the lead.

The Hammers would then keep Manchester City at bay as Pep Guardiola chased an equalizer.

The Spaniard would then introduce Phil Foden in place of Sergio Aguero after the break. The Englishman would immediately get into action as he pulled the visitors back with a fine goal.

The 20-year old midfielder would receive a low cross from Cancelo from the left wide, took a touch before putting it past an outstretched Fabianski.

City would continue to dominate the half as they pushed for a winner, sending on Kevin De Bruyne who was making a return from injury.

The Hammers held off City with the visitors failing to test Fabianski.

The result leaves Moyes’ side in tenth just above Manchester City.
