Manchester City missed the chance to move six points clear at the top of the Premier League as West Ham produced a clinical counter attacking display at Etihad Stadium.

Victor Moses drilled in his first West Ham goal with a low 20 yard shot which crept inside Joe Hart left hand post.

The visitors doubled their lead when Diafra Sakho hooked in from six yards.

City record signing Kevin De Bruyne fired in to halve the deficit, but West Ham held on to move into second place.

Yaya Toure angled shot whistled past the Hammers post after the break, while away keeper Adrian made a string of excellent saves.

City dominated the game, controlling 72% of possession and attempting 27 shots at goal, but were unable to find a way past an away side who are now three points behind them.

Reaction to the Hammers shock win at leaders City

Manuel Pellegrini side suffered a chastening midweek defeat when they surrendered a 1 0 lead against Italian side Juventus to lose 2 1 in their Champions League opener.

But the Blues, who netted 11 goals without reply in their opening five top flight matches, would have been confident of bouncing back against opposition with a woeful record at Etihad Stadium.

Going into the match, the Hammers had suffered seven consecutive defeats in east Manchester, scoring just three goals and conceding 20 in the Wholesale nfl jerseys process.

However, Slaven Bilic side executed their game plan perfectly, catching their opponents on the break, taking the chances they created, and then defending stoutly to preserve their lead.

Reid shines in heart of defence

While Spanish keeper Adrian will take most of the plaudits for keeping out City, Hammers centre back Winston Reid was also instrumental in helping his team clinch their fourth win of the Premier League season.

The New Zealand international made the most clearances (21) and interceptions (four) during the match, while he also won back possession for his side (nine) more than any other player.

Victor Moses strike was the first league goal Manchester City had conceded in 572 minutes.

West Ham Dimitri Payet has contributed to 12 goals (four goals, eight assists) in his last 14 league appearances (Premier League and Ligue 1 combined).
