Premier League
West Ham United 1 Manchester City 4

Sunday, 29th April 2018
by Staff Writer

West Ham conceded three goals or more for the NINTH time since David Moyes succeeded Slaven Bilic as manager, as they fell to yet another demoralising heavy defeat at home.

City were made to wait just 13 minutes before taking the lead via a huge deflection off Angelo Ogbonna's back - a lead that was doubled on 27 minutes when Declan Rice inadvertently turned a low centre into his own net.

West Ham showed brief signs of life in the closing stages of the first half and halved the deficit through a well-executed Aaron Cresswell free kick, seconds after Marko Arnautovic was denied what should have been a penalty.

However the second half proved to be a walk in the (Olympic) park for the visitors, who added goals from Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho to secure a not particularly-flattering 4-1 win.
