Manchester City beat West ham to extend their lead in the EPL

Feb 28th ,2021 Manchester City are 13 points clear in the English premier league table after a 2-1 win over Wetsham United at Etihad stadium.

The win also extended their winning run to 20 matches as John Stones’ second-half strike was enough to secure victory over a resilient West Ham United.

Stones fired home his fourth goal of the season from Riyad Mahrez’s neat lay-off to keep Pep Guardiola’s side in control of the title race.

Fourth-placed West Ham gave City a decent game at Etihad Stadium and fought back to level through Michail Antonio before the break, after Stones’ central-defensive partner Ruben Dias had put the hosts in front.

City’s unbeaten record now stretches to 27 games and they will equal their longest run without defeat if they do not lose against Wolves on Tuesday.

“We were lucky to get all three points. The mathematics matter at the end of the season.” city Manager Pep Guardiola said.

“I’m really disappointed we didn’t get a point. It was a terrific performance. We came here and tried to match a top side – and for long periods we did.

“I can’t promise to deliver European football to West Ham. I’ve hoped that we can try and be top 10. We can’t get carried away because we’re up against teams who are used to being at the top of the league. Hammers manager David Moyes said.
