City pounded the Hammers’ thick defense relentlessly. They kept attacking the center and left and right flanks. In times of frustration, Rodriguez would hit a mid-range shot. However, West Ham’s defensive balance was not easily broken. Their line control was good, and they rarely gave City space to get a shot off. It was a shame that City didn’t capitalize on their early chances.

After holding on, West Ham took the lead in the 36th minute. A counterattack worked. Ward-Prowse rattled the City net with a header from Kovacs’ cross after a mistimed clearance by Doku.

Man City equalized in the first minute of the second half to tie the game. After conceding the first goal, Dokou scored his EPL debut with a solo effort. Dokou dribbled in and rattled the West Ham net with a quick right-footed curling shot on the rebound.

Dokou is a Belgian international winger who City signed this summer. The club bought Dokou from Rennes (France) to fill the void left by the departure of Mahrez.

City were unlucky not to go ahead in the seventh minute when Alvarez’s free kick hit the post. City nearly doubled their lead in the eighth minute of the second half when a fantastic volley from Holland was saved by West Ham’s goalkeeper.

The Hammers were unable to capitalize on a one-on-one chance with the keeper in the 11th minute. City goalkeeper Ederson was quick to get forward and block Antonio’s shot. The Hammers had their best chance of the game in the 16th minute when Zouma’s curling header from a corner was denied by a diving save from the City spider. Zouma, who had virtually stolen a goal, laughed in disbelief. The City players encouraged Ederson.

Moyes took off Antonio and Alvarez in the 21st minute of the second half and brought on Cudjoe and Benramar as jokers. City also dropped Foden and brought on Mateusz Nunes as a joker.
