Man City leave it late to beat Hammers

Man City leave it late to beat Hammers

"We knew we had to be patient, we came out flying in the second half, we tried to explain to the boys we still had time and then we started to relax a bit more and found those spaces".

All eyes will be on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, as Manchester United host Manchester City in arguably the biggest game in recent Premier League history, as United look to stop their neighbours from marching to a seemingly inevitable League title. "I think not only Shakhtar's supporters but all Ukrainians have to be proud of our team".

Manchester City restored their eight-point gap over Manchester United on Sunday thanks to David Silva's late victor against West Ham United.

But even though they so almost drew all four games, the determination they have shown to grind out wins on each occasion suggests title-winning form.

"After that he's trying, but he gave minutes in the last two games, he's ready...but it's not easy for him with 10 players there [in the box], there's nearly no space". You have to try to solve it [when teams pack the defense].




"We're gutted that we lost it", Moyes said. We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me.

"The pace was better, we had more presence in the box".

The 83rd-minute victor came when David Silva launched himself to acrobatically turn in Kevin De Bruyne's brilliant chipped pass but Moyes pointed towards something of a learning experience for 18-year-old Rice, who he credited with impressing up until that point on his third top-flight start. "We showed much better discipline as a team and now we need to move on". Most of their shots were from outside the box and we filled the box and made it hard for them to score.

"It will happen again next week against United so we have to try and concede fewer set-pieces".
