Coming up against Manchester City tested the depth of the club to cling onto their brilliant start to the season.
Manchester City went into the match with a 100% record win in all their four opening matches of the season.

City needed a win against West Ham to return to the summit of the table.
As expected, City dominated proceedings in the game from the start, welding more possession and pressing West Ham deep down their half.
The Hammers were able to hold off the visitors but could make a meaningful attacking attempt early in the game.
It was still a dicey game for City coming against the in-form David Moyes side but with Pep Guardiola back to the dugout after undergoing surgery, the Cityzens were swiftly in control of proceedings.
While Ederson lazied at the back without an attempt from West Ham, Manchester City forced Alphonse Areola to make series of saves early in the game.

The goal was enough to send West Ham into the lead at the first half break.
