Aguero penalty enough as Man City defeat West Ham

Manchester City have named their team and substitutes to play host to Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham United side in a Premier League game tonight.

The Chilean was critical of the match official's decision to penalise Felipe Anderson for a foul on Bernardo Silva after 59 minutes of resolute defending from the visitors on Wednesday night.

Pep Guardiola responded by withdrawing the ineffectual Mahrez and Leroy Sane for Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva, and it was the latter who won the penalty that Aguero converted to put City ahead.

'If we had lost this game with another action then maybe we could accept it, but not that penalty'. "I am delighted with the way we performed", said Guardiola.

Yet City were unable to keep the pressure on, as Mahrez in particular struggled, with an unsuccessful penalty appeal for handball against Angelo Ogbonna the only other moment of note in the first half. Manchester City 4 - 2 West Ham.

The three dead were in the vehicle, Eng said, and the injured included seven train passengers, a conductor, and an engineer. We've confirmed that they were functioning, " he said. "Costs that should be borne by others are being borne by us now ".

Indeed, this was the first time in the Premier League this season that City have been restricted to just one goal in a home game.

More City chances followed, with Ryan Fredericks clearing off the line from Silva and Sterling missing the target from close range, but in the end one goal was sufficient.

City camped in the visitors' half for the opening 45 minutes but apart from David Silva going close when he hit the post after an excellent low cross, their dominance rarely threatened Lukasz Fabianski's goal.

Pellegrini added: "We defended well but we didn't look after the ball well enough".

'The penalty was decisive for the result. We know they have a lot of players that can make the difference, but we worked well and our intention was to recover the ball and have speed in front.
