Dias And Stones Extend The City Party

A good defense can also be the best offense. Or at least that's how it was for Manchester City. Those of Guardiola are not only the meanest team in the Premier and the least shots of the Champions granted, but its central lined to subdue the West Ham. Rúben Dias and John Stones, the fashion duo in the Premier, scored the goals of a triumph that City had to sweat. The 'hammers' bothered, tied the initial goal through Antonio, and came to touch the 2-2 in discount with a header from Diop. But the City continues without finding a brake.

The Catalan coach opted for the return of Agüero to eleven after overcoming his injury, although the Argentine was far from his level. De Bruyne also returned , who without being in his best version pulled a trick out of his hat to open the scoreboard. With difficulties to find holes in the five defenses that Moyes planted, a center of the Belgian undid everything . His left foot sent an unappealable delivery to the head of Rúben Dias, who finished off his first goal with the Manchester City shirt on the net.

Far from sinking with the goal, West Ham found their best minutes in attack before the break. The reward was given by Antonio: an internship by the tireless Coufal was finished off by Lingard, but it was defined by the top gunner 'hammer'. The Londoners were capable of creating more danger than any other Etihad opponent in the past two months. His goal ended almost 19 hours of soccer without conceding at home.

With a draw, it was halftime, and Guardiola had to respond at the restart. He brought in Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden , and the Mancunians improved. Slowly and relentlessly, they locked West Ham in their area until they found the award. Mahrez wriggled from the right before centering back, where an unexpected guest arrived: Stones crossed with the interior and Randolph could do nothing.

No defender has scored more goals in the league than Stones (4) and no team has won like City. The streak of consecutive wins increases to 20, Guardiola's are still shooting towards the title.
