Aguero penalty enough as Man City defeat West Ham

West Ham United youngster Declan Rice put in yet another impressive performance in central-defensive-midfield for the club last night, this time against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. Liverpool seem like they are also really focused on the Premier League and they won 5-0 against Watford.

Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga who refused to be subbed against Manchester City in the EFL Cup final suffered the outcome of what he did as he was benched by Sarri against Spurs.

"[Arthur] Masuaku is injured, [Aaron] Cresswell broke his toe in the last game, and [Pablo] Zabaleta is just coming back from a back injury that he was not able to play the full game".

The spot-kick settled a contest in which City dominated possession and created numerous chances as they returned to league action three days on from their Carabao Cup final victory on penalties against Chelsea. "Yet the Hammers" dogged defending frustrated them and it was not until the introduction of Bernardo Silva off the bench they made the breakthrough.

Around 80 Tory MPs abstained on the vote, showing the PM is far from able to rely on the hardcore Eurosceptics in her party. May's government but said he disagreed with MPs urging changes to the legal text within her Brexit plan.

The Hammers did not threaten at all at the other end until Andy Carroll brought a fine save from Ederson with their first shot of the game at the start of the second half.

"It's never easy to be positive after a defeat.it will be tough but we need to move on quickly and try to be ready to compete on Saturday", said the Argentine manager. Although City will take comfort that despite the exhausted legs they continued to create chances even after failing to convert any. From my vantage point just in front it looked a clear penalty but I also thought Aguero was unfairly denied just a few minutes before when he was bundled to the ground. Liverpool - who last won the title 29 years ago - now lead City by a point with 10 games left.

Wilshere's absence should be a lifeline for teammate Pedro Obiang and keep him in the hunt for more first-team minutes. So of course we didn't score as much goals as we needed for the way we played.

"But Manu changed our game, he is a player giving good assistance to the forwards, always receiving the ball, always asking for the ball and I don't remember him losing one pass tonight".
