Michail Antonio ’83: 8/10

Ran himself into the ground against Guardiola’s side. The City manager pointed out Antonio as a threat before the game and was proven right after Antonio’s poachers finish in the first half. The striker was unlucky only to have one goal after he also hit the post.

Another positive is that Antonio looked back to 100% fitness and did not have any hamstring trouble throughout the match. The striker is also forming a great understanding with Jesse Lingard, which will be crucial going forward.


Jarrod Bowen & Said Benrahma ’83: N/A

Neither player had a long time on the pitch, and neither really made an impact on the game before the final whistle. Perhaps Moyes could have made the changes earlier to give the two forwards more time to affect proceedings.

It was a good showing from Champions League chasing West Ham. The Hammers did not show City the same respect that they showed Liverpool and Manchester United earlier in the month.

West Ham will now have to keep an eye on the Chelsea match as the Blues could go ahead of them if they beat Manchester United tomorrow. Overall, David Moyes will have been happy with the performance against City but will have wished his team had held on to a crucial point.
