Man City drew 1-1 with West Ham at London Stadium and Phil Foden scored

Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham as they failed to win at London Stadium for the first time

The Blues entered the game with an incredible record scoring at least four goals in each of their five games at the new home of the Hammers, but they were far from their best shining in dropping points for the third time in five league games at the start of this season

Michail Antonio opened the scoring with an acrobatic effort in the first half and the hosts led the breakthrough through the goal

Pep Guardiola introduced Phil Foden at half-time and the young midfielder had a big impact on the proceedings, guiding at home a cultivated finish to tie the scores

City looked for a winner but couldn’t find one and ended up in 11th place in the table after five games

There is no clearer sign of the upside down state engulfing the world than the sight of West Ham not being toned by Manchester City at London Stadium

A 1-1 draw marked a disappointing way to end what has been a positive return of international duty for City, with fatigue adding to the usual questions put to this team after a strenuous performance that required a spark substitute Phil Foden to save a point

Pep Guardiola’s team have essentially taken possession of this stadium every time they’ve visited it, showing up, taking the keys and locking up West Ham before heading to victory Five matches in all competitions have brought in five away wins, 22 away goals and just one goal for the so-called home team

The Blues were also undefeated in their last 12 kickoffs in an inning dating back to December 2016, while the manager’s record of 9/0/0 wins against West Ham was the best of his managerial career

Pep Guardiola has confirmed Sergio Aguero was substituted at half-time in Manchester City’s Premier League draw at West Ham due to injury

Aguero, starting his third game in a row in a week after a three-month layoff, was not his usual personality at the London Stadium, rarely influencing the game as West Ham started strongly and took a lead over City

After the match, Guardiola reported bad news about Aguero’s condition, telling BT Sport that the forward had contracted a new muscle injury, rather than being substituted for fitness or tactical reasons.

Ederson: He didn’t have much to do other than get the ball out of his net Blaming him for the goal would seem unfair given the distance and quality of Antonio 6

Walker: Another consistent and excellent performance When he wasn’t pushing down the right flank or stepping back to stop a block, he was loud and clear organizing the rest of the defense 7

Dias: Outmuscled and beaten by Antonio for the Phantom goal in the opponent’s box but strangely torso rather than directing the ball and luck was part 5

Garcia: West Ham have quick forwards and they have deliberately targeted the lack of pace at the back Add some unusual mistakes and it was a tough afternoon for the youngster 5

Cancelo: I enjoyed running up the left flank and played a vital role in the equalizer He’s still incredibly right-handed, and West Ham used him to his advantage, but still better than Wednesday 7

The offside call seemed close but the winger couldn’t find the finish to beat the Brazilian

City stand a chance after a dead ball situation but De Bruyne’s effort is easily caught by Fabianski

If Pep Guardiola had planned this match, I don’t think he would have brought Kevin De Bruyne at all

But needs must and City have a very strong side with 20 minutes to score a goal

With Riyad Mahrez now second striker behind Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden roaming, there is enough movement to make room and secure that crucial second goal

De Bruyne gets detailed instructions from Rodolfo Borrell before continuing Foden has moved things forward, can De Bruyne orchestrate things from further away?

City spices up West Ham’s goal as Cancelo fires a shot high over the bar

A superb pass from Gundogan finds Cancelo and Sterling is square in the middle waiting for a tap-in

West Ham submarine confirmation as Antonio leaves the field due to injury with the arrival of Yarmolenko

Ferran Torres and Kevin De Bruyne warm up as City seek equalizer

Raheem Sterling played better on Wednesday with Aguero off and Foden and Torres against Porto, so will he be rejuvenated this half?

Aguero was barely jogging towards the end of that first half He was walking right into the West Ham half trying his best not to catch the ball He was clearly not in shape, and the decision to playing him for the third time in a week definitely backfired

There’s an entertaining game going on at Academy Stadium, as City U23 drag Arsenal with an early PL2 goal

But that’s only half the story, as a minute later the Arsenal goalkeeper was given a direct red card, and they don’t have a replacement goalkeeper on the bench

It was before ten minutes, and the City squad are strong with Felix Nmecha, Tommy Doyle, Liam Delap and Adrian Bernabe

Riyad Mahrez gets kicked out of the game every time he tries to come up for defense Whether he comes in or out, it just doesn’t work for him today Maybe that Phil Foden or Ferran Torres would be more effective on this right?

Walker isn’t the best for the future and has plenty of other things to do on the team as well, while Cancelo’s lack of a left foot means he will always want to go inside
