WHZ View: West Ham mainstay saves the day with masterclass in Man City draw
West Ham United continued their stunning run of form in the Premier League on Saturday against Manchester City.
The Irons went into the game at the London Stadium after wins over Wolves and Leicester, and the remarkable draw with Tottenham.
David Moyes’ men took the lead against City, but eventually conceded and managed to hold on for a single point against the onslaught of the away side.
After a positive start in the first-half, City took complete control in the second half with Phil Foden turning the game on its head.
Moyes will have been expecting the onslaught from Pep Guardiola after the break, and it certainly came through the likes of Raheem Sterling, who missed plenty of chances.
It wasn’t down to his efficiency though, it was more down to a masterclass of Lukasz Fabianski, who was superb.

The Polish stopper stood tall on a number of occasions and even saved his side after Sterling went through on goal more than once.
According to WyScout, Fabianski faced seven shots on goal but also completed 10 of his 12 attempted passes – vital against the high press of City.
Fabianski has been a key figure for the Hammers for many years now but doesn’t always get the praise that he deserves.
Michail Antonio received most of the plaudits for his goal, but the Polish keeper definitely played a bigger part in earning this latest point.
