That's full time. City aren't what they were earlier in the season, but they have such good players that it doesn't really matter. They can break down the deepest defence, and have the superhuman fitness to just keep going. Moyes can be pleased - expect Guardiola to scream at him for defending later.
- Yellow cardAdriánWest Ham United
Adrian slides in on Jesus on the right and gets a booking. It looked like a dive, and was. Adrian definitely fouled him, but Jesus just decided to stop standing up out of some kind of fatalism.

- OffLeroy SanéManchester City

- OffMichail AntonioWest Ham United
- OnAndré AyewWest Ham United
Ayew on for Antonio.
Antonio launches himself towards a cross, and it appears he's effed his hamstring with the leap. He'll have to come off - he's gone to ground, and City won't mind killing some time this way. Delph comes on to assist with what might be cramp.
- OffSergio AgüeroManchester City

Fernandinho replaces Aguero, who hasn't been much cop.
- GoalDavid SilvaManchester City
GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 West Ham. Silva scores - 500 passes from Manchester City, and De Bruyne clips in a superb pass for Silva's run into the box. He sticks out a leg, it's a touch too heavy, but it still flies past Adrian and that's it.

Kouyate is back on the pitch, and so far he's moving alright in midfield, putting in tackles.

Antonio clears City's corner from the left. Sane has another cross a moment later, but that is cleared too, and City are pressed back for a few seconds. Sane then drives to the byline, and his pull-back is put behind by Obiang for another corner on the left wing.
Masuaku is on hand to intercept a pass, pick out Antonio down the left, but he is tackled and City come back to attack. 500 passes later, Silva has room for a strike from the edge of the box, and his shot loops off Rice to the top corner. Adrian pulls off an excellent stop.
Adrian jogs out to claim a long ball over the top.
Sane tries to release Danilo, but the ball is intercepted. The defending so far has been pretty good, to be fair to Moyes, as it was for much of his time at United. The attacking has all been a bit Januzaj, though.
Ederson comes way out of his box to collect a long ball, and comfortably swerves around Antonio pressing him. City attack again, nothing doing - for now.
- Yellow cardDeclan RiceWest Ham United
A cross from the left almost meets Antonio straining at the near post, but Ederson claims. He launches a quick counter down the left for Sane, meaning Rice decides to clatter into him. Yellow card.

Silva tries to measure a pass for Sane's run towards the six-yard box, but it's just too strong and Adrian can collect.
Adrian is taking his sweet time taking a goal kick. Perhaps Pep will run on and scream at him at the end of the match?
West Ham haven't been too stretched so far, but they have been pressed back in their own half for much of the opening 10 minutes.
Antonio wins a corner on the right wing from Danilo. The players pack the box. Cresswell whips in a cross, Kouyate flicks it on to the back post and Antonio stretches out to send a shot wide.
The ball goes into the other half! West Ham give away a throw-in 0.3 yards over the line.
Zabaleta rushes out to concede a corner on the right wing. Silva takes, it drops to the near post, and Mangala is ruled to have bundled it behind. The replay from Sterling's earlier dive suggests that the dive was a dive.
West Ham will find out what the other half looks like at some point.
Masuaku heads behind at the back post and concedes a corner on the right wing. De Bruyne takes low and short, Sterling runs into the box and falls to the ground, appealling for a penalty.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway, and West Ham have succesfully defended the opening seconds.
#Zabs is back.
With 10 minutes to go, let me look at the league table. Right, I've looked at the league table and it appears if my maths are right that Man City can go eight points clear if they can beat West Ham today.
This seems to be all anyone is discussing today.

City have Mangala for his first league start under Pep Guardiola. He has been, in truth, awful for most of his City games, but he won't have been a bad player when he arrived. Give him a chance after his time away on loan, and perhaps there is a player there.
Pep Guardiola should be watching this from the stands, if the rules of football are to be enforced consistently. But, let's be honest. One, running onto the pitch after the whistle to yell encouragement at another player isn't exactly the right thing to do, and it smacks of hubris, but it doesn't deserve a ban, if we consider it away from what the rules are. And, if we consider whether the FA and Premier League ever use consistency? No, they never do, but there you go.
Poor David. West Ham manager David Moyes has to do without Joe Hart - on loan from Manchester City, Steven Reid (crocked), and drops Marko Arnautovic to the bench after he left their last game injured. He comes up againsts perhaps the best team and manager in the world right now.
