General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 FULL-TIME, and Manchester City secure a 2-1 victory after not really being tested by their West Ham opponents. The second half was arguably more dull than the first, but Yaya Toure’s thunderous strike did enough to secure the points for the Citizens despite the Hammers looking better than they did in the opening period and Andy Carroll’s late strike coupled with Joe Hart’s error. The home side did not really have to move out of second or third gear, and take a win that further cements them in the Champions League places.
90' +4 A. Carroll has scored a goal for West Ham United! Assist by G. Demel.
GOAL!!! What an appalling error from Joe Hart! The ball comes into Andy Carroll, who chests it down and hammers it towards the England goalkeeper, who spills it over the line. That's the first goal he's conceded at home in six games.
90' +3 Interesting from Hart, who takes a Jarvis cross but seems to drop the ball slightly behind him before gathering at the second attempt. He must have known what he was doing, surely.
90' +1 Chance! Zabaleta sees a long-range shot parried poorly by Jaaskelainen into the path of Aguero, whose chipped finish goes wide. He could have had a hat-trick today. Four minutes will be added on at the end of the game.
90' Oh dear. Hart has gone down and seems to be in some pain. He might have tweaked something in his leg, but looks to be OK to continue.
88' Chance! Carroll finally gets some good contact on a header but Hart does just enough to palm the ball away.
87' K. Touré enters the game and replaces S. Nasri.
Great block! Aguero has another chance after a brilliant run and square ball from Zabaleta, but Guy Demel is on hand to prevent his shot going in. City could have had several this afternoon.
86' Good ball there from Taylor, but none of the West Ham forwards can get good contact as they see it roll comfortably for Joe Hart to collect.
84' Javi García enters the game and replaces C. Tévez.
83' Y. Touré has scored a goal for Manchester City! Assist by S. Nasri.
GOAL!!! Manchester City lead 2-0!! The ball breaks to Yaya Toure just outside the box, and he hammers home a shot into the top corner to secure three points for the home side. What a good goal that was.
