West Ham United faced off against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to grind out a result on their travels. The Hammers made a solid start to the game and managed to get to the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.
However, David Moyes’ men conceded the opening goal in the 50th minute when Nathan Ake found the back of the net for Man City. Erling Haaland doubled the home team’s advantage in the 70th minute before Phil Foden put daylight between the two sides late in the game. The contest finished with West Ham suffering a poor 3-0 loss away from home.
