West Ham did the unthinkable on Saturday night, ousting the Premier League leaders Manchester City. The London team is now 3-0 up against top contenders of the league adding Manchester City to its list of victims in the Premier League this season.
Prior to their trip to the Etihad stadium, West Ham had already beaten Arsenal and Liverpool in their own backyards. Having added Manchester City to the list, Manchester United and Chelsea need to buckle up when they host West Ham later in the season.
Adrian and Winston Reid save the day for West Ham
West Ham are deadly, especially when they have taken the lead. It happened again, Manchester City like Arsenal and Liverpool made the mistake and let West Ham take the lead early in the game. However, Arsenal and Liverpool failed to compete against the visiting Hammers, City went full throttle against the Hammers succumbing the two goal deficit.
It can even be said that the game was literally played in front of the West Ham goal ever since City conceded.
All credits to West Ham goalkeeper Adrian and the brave Winston Reid that kept the Manchester City attackers in control to eventually win their third big game away from Upton Park this season.
Kevin De Bruyne lives up to expectations
Kevin De Bruyne took a brief spell in Germany last year where he made his name shine, after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho sought to his other options in the Chelsea midfield. Now, the player returns to the Premier League in a whopping 54 million pound deal for Manchester City.
The former Wolfsburg man delivered to his promises on his home debut in the EPL bringing down the deficit to 2-1 against West Ham. However, his performances could not give Manchester City the points that they would have hoped for, playing in front of the home fans.
This was the first points that City have dropped this season and the first goals they have conceded in the Premier League.
Surely that is a sign for West Ham, as they increase their giant killing capacities in the Premier League.
