Well what an incredible end to the day's play in the Premier League

Come on, hands up. Before these six games who had West Ham to have already beaten Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City away and Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City to be the only side unbeaten?

You just never know what's going to happen in the Premier League so make sure you check back tomorrow for three more live games as Tottenham host Crystal Palace, Liverpool host Norwich and Southampton take on Manchester United.


From OptaJoe

And it's also the first time it has happened in 10 years...

FULL-TIME: Manchester City 1-2 West Ham United

90+4min: Ten seconds to go and West Ham have the ball in Man City's half. Job done?

From WhoScored

90+2min: The corner was cleared but now Man City have a free-kick out wide on the right. That too is wasted.


90min: There will be a Manchester City corner as four minutes are added.

Not enough according to the home fans as a loud groan bounces of the walls of the Etihad Stadium.


89min: Another good save but this time from Joe Hart as the Manchester City keeper pushes behind a dipping Dimitri Payet effort from 25 yards.


86min: What a save! This is Adrian's best yet as he shows superb reflexes to tip over Otamendi's header at the near post following a De Bruyne corner. West ham edging closer to yet another famous win.

84min: The West Ham defence has been rock solid in this half - almost bullet proof as another cross is cleared behind.

Manchester City go for broke as Kelechi Iheanacho replaces Kolarov, while West Ham replace Jenkinson with James Collins.

Jenkinson had gone down with cramp yet again but not even his team-mates are buying it as Mark Noble performs an incredible sporting gesture by lifting him to his feet - much to the delight of the home fans.


81min: We are into the final 10 and still Man City labour in front of goal. Yet another corner falls for De Bruyne, but facing a difficult dropping volley from 20 yards he skies well off target. 

That's Manchester City's 22nd shot in this game - only seven have been on target.


78min: Boos from the home fans and there are even chants of 'cheat, cheat, cheat' as Carl Jenkinson pulls up on the pitch complaining of what looks like cramp.

He is being treated on the pitch, but the home supporters are having none of it as the jeers continue.

West Ham United's Winston Reid (right) and Aaron Cresswell attempt to stop the run of Manchester City's Yaya Toure

75min: Desperate times call for desperate measures. Kolarov races on to a pass inside the box, and although his run is blocked by Sakho, his theatrical tumble fails to convince the referee he deserves a penalty


72min: It is just all Man City! Sagna floats in a cross from the right but it's just a little too high for Bony inside the box.

It will be an incredible defensive showing if West Ham relent against this sort of pressure for the next 18 minutes.

West ham United substitution

69min: A second change for West Ham and it's an interesting one. Manuel Lanzini has departed but on in his place is a striker in the form of Nikica Jelavic. Slaven Bilic refuses to shut-up shop. Good on him, but is it a smart call?

More desperate defending from the visitors as reid deflects wide a Toure effort.

66min: Adrian is in inspired form. First he beats Aguero to a low Aleksandar Kolarov cross, now from the other flank he does well to turn a low Navas effort behind for a corner.

It's a second change for Man City as Sterling departs in favour of Wilfried Bony. Plenty of defending to do now for West Ham.


63min: Manchester City are still pressing but they are getting no closer to an equaliser as Toure spins on the turn before again drilling powerfully wide across the target.

West ham substitution

60min: First change for West Ham as Michail Antonio replaces Victor Moses.


57min: But Manchester City must still be wary of the counter attack. Sakho gets in behind the defence, but seemingly put off by the onrushing hart can only stab wide of the target.

West Ham's Adrian saves from Manchester City's Yaya Toure

54min: Brilliant stop from Adrian! Yaya Toure uses pace and power to bulldoze past Aaron Cresswell and Winston Reid, but his point blank shot is parried away by the keeper.


51min: All hands to the pump for West Ham. Toure sees a shot blocked inside the box before the Hammers scarmble clear


48min: A good start to the half for Manchester City, they are flying forward like they ended the first period as Yaya Toure fires narrowly wide across the target.

SECOND HALF: Manchester City restart and make a change at the break

It's a change in the defence as Martin Demichelis replaces Eliaquim Mangala.

PLAYER WATCH: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

While £52million Kevin De Bruyne has impressed for Manchester City, another of Manchester City's big money buys is struggling.

Raheem Sterling, at £49million, is struggling to get a kick - can Manuel Pellegrini get more out of him in the second half?

West Ham are on course for a third straight shock victory on the road

Just what is Slaven Bilic feeding his side ahead of these testing trips?

Arsenal and Liverpool have already been defeated on the road this season and West Ham are once again taking the game to a big side as they lead at Man City.

That Kevin De Bruyne strike has perhaps shifted the momentum towards the hosts, but if you watched that first half, you won't be surprised if the Hammers moved into a 3-1 lead during the second half.

You can see the confidence flowing through the team right now.

HALF-TIME: Manchester City 1-2 West Ham United

Here is how De Bruyne netted his first ever man City goal

45+5min: Manchester City are piling forward like it's the last few seconds of the game. West Ham are defending like it too as Pedro Obiang is booked for a dreadful challenge on Yaya Toure.


45+2min: Inside four added minutes, Kevin De Bruyne pulls a goal back for Manchester City!

Of course following on from my previous post, Aguero is involved as he squares for the Belgian who drills low into the bottom corner from 25 yards. It's similar to Moses' opening goal and it's his first for the club.

45min: Sakho limps off but he is soon back on  - to a chorus of boos from the home support not convinced over his injury legitimacy. 

At the other end, De Bruyne, now on the left, cuts the ball back for Aguero inside the box but the Argetine slips as he skies a first time effort way off target.

The way the Argentine is playing, I'd be tempted to throw on Wilfried Bony in his place... yes, it's got that desperate.


42min: So close to 3-0! Sakho robs Aleksandar Kolarov of the ball inside the Man City box, and while the Serbian is left eating the grass on the floor after tumbling over, Mangala does incredibly well to quickly make a challenge on the West Ham striker before he can pull the trigger.

It looks like Sakho may have more than a hurt ego after that, as play has stopped so he can receive some treatment.

Diafra Sakho of West Ham United went down injured after scoring his team's second goal at Manchester City

40min: It's just not Aguero's day at the moment. Man City put together one of their best moves of the match as a long pass finds the sprinting Bacary Sagna down the right, and although the full-back's near post cross finds Aguero, Adrian quickly foils the striker at his feet.


39min: More threat from Manchester City and it's at least another shot on target as Navas' effort across goal is parried away by Adrian while Aguero lashes over from the edge of the box shortly after.

From InfostradaLive

34min: There is a debate over whether the corner should have been given as the ball may not have gone out of play, but I would need to see another replay before making a conclusive decision - it's that close.

At the other end it's a little more conclusive as Aguero is flagged offside as he runs in on goal. Cue groans from the frustrated home fans.

GOAL! Manchester City 0-2 WEST HAM UNITED

31min: Stunned silence around the Etihad Stadium...except for the pocket of West Ham supporters who are going absolutely crazy.

They have every right to do so too. The Hammers are cruising at the league leaders as Diafra Sakho converts from close range after Pedro Obiang had played the ball across goal following a Dimitri Payet corner.

Sakho was injured scoring the goal but he looks like he will be able to continue.


28min: Nearly 30 minutes into this game and the only shot Man City have had on target was that early Fernandinho header. De Bruyne has looked sharp but West Ham still look rather comfortable defending this lead.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling runs on to the ball at the Etihad Stadium

25min: Just like against Newcastle on Monday, West Ham look rather dangerous on the counter attack.

Unlike against Newcastle, Manchester City are giving them fewer opportunities to do so. But the hosts are not really testing Adrian as Navas charges into the box on the right before seeing a shot blocked.


22min: First booking of the game as Manuel Lanzini is cautioned for purposely ending a counter attack started by Sterling.

Sergio Aguero of Manchester City takes the ball past Adrian of West Ham United before shooting wide

21min: Vital defending from Otamendi! Carl Jenkinson beats a sliding Eliaquim Mangala to the ball, but from the byline the full-back's cross for an unmarked Sakho is cleared behind by the Argentine.


19min: That's a little better from the hosts as Kevin de Bruyne moves into space on the right, but Sergio Aguero fails to get on the end of his cross as a West Ham defender clears


16min: New increased capacity or not, Manchester City's fans have gone very quiet inside the Etihad Stadium.

The hosts look the better team on the ball but they are not exactly creating much and after just 20 minutes I'm already convinced they are badly missing David Silva.


13min: West Ham are having a little bit of trouble defending Manchester City set-pieces as the hosts create another good opening from a corner.

Jesus Navas's near post delivery is met by Nicolas Otamendi but his header sails over the bar.

9min: Chance for Man City. Adrian has a mad moment as he rushes 20 yards off his line to try and intercept Sergio Aguero, but dspite the Argentine taking the ball past the keeper he can't turn home a resulting finish on target as he scuffs wide. You expect better especially from Aguero.

GOAL! Manchester City 0-1 WEST HAM UNITED

6min: First Arsenal, then Liverpool now Man City. West Ham United are at it again! Victor Moses receives the ball 25 yards out and after advancing a couple of yards he unleashes a deadly accurate strike which flies into the bottom corner of Joe Hart's near post.

Should the England keeper have done better? I'm not certain - it was a stunning strike!

5min: First chance for Manchester City. Fernandinho leaps like a salmon inside the box to meet a corner kick, but although he makes good contact with his header, his powerful nodded effort is straight at Adrian who parries away.

From Sportsmail's Joe Bernstein at the Etihad Stadium

'Kevin De Bruyne has been given the key No 10 role following Silva's late withdrawal. A big challenge for the £54million signing on his first Manchester City start.'


3min: A positive start for West Ham as Diafra Sakho shook off his marker on the left before delivering a dangerous looking cross into the box. There were no takers, but Victor Moses did keep the ball in play before the hosts cleared.
