West Ham United 1-3 Manchester City

In Sergio Aguero and David Silva, Manchester City have two trump cards few teams can match, and that was very much the case at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Hammers’ defence was sliced open in the first period when Aguero tucked the ball home after neat work from Alvaro Negredo and Fernandinho.

The Argentine forward, who was the smallest man on the pitch at 5 ft 8 in, headed home man-of-the-match David Silva’s free-kick six minutes after half-time, before Ricardo Vaz Te grabbed a goal back for the hosts.

However, it proved little more than a consolation as Silva combined with Aguero again to get himself on the scoresheet and wrap up a 3-1 away victory.

After the match, and despite my best efforts, no Manchester City players stopped to talk to the media in the mixed zone, but I did get one famous fan of the Club to talk – music star, Noel Gallagher.

I asked the former Oasis frontman’s view on his team’s fortunes this season, and although he said he was pleased with the progress under manager Manuel Pellegrini, the 46-year-old tipped Chelsea to win the Premier League.

Despite losing the match, West Ham’s players were happy to face up to the media after the match. I managed to grab a couple of West Ham players afterwards, including winger Stewart Downing – who is still making his way back to full fitness.
