Manchester City came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday, retaining their advantage in the Premier League title race.
The hosts had a shock 2-0 lead at halftime thanks to Jarrod Bowen’s brace, but a deflected effort from Jack Grealish and a Vladimir Coufal own goal levelled the game.
In the 84th minute, Riyad Mahrez had the chance to win the game and all but seal the title, however, his strike was well saved by Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
The opening stages of the match were relatively uneventful, with a comical injury to assistant referee Gary Beswick the inadvertent highlight.
Then, in the 24th minute, the game burst into life as West Ham took a surprise lead.
Out of nothing, Pablo Fornals played an impressive ball over the top which gave Bowen the chance to run in on goal.
He rounded Ederson and fired home from an acute angle to break the deadlock.
City struggled to dig out clear-cut chances as they went in search of an equaliser.
City responded with a fast start to the second period, cutting the deficit in the 49th minute.
Grealish made it 2-1 with a deflected strike – his first Premier League goal since December.
From this point onwards City’s pressure increased and they went close on several occasions.
West Ham had a fleeting opportunity on the break as Antonio failed to chip Ederson, and they were punished soon afterwards.
