Pablo Zabaleta sends a special message to Manchester City fans

Pablo Zabaleta sends a special message to Manchester City fans

But even though they so almost drew all four games, the determination they have shown to grind out wins on each occasion suggests title-winning form.

The visitors had a great opportunity to snatch a point in the final minute of regular time, Marko Arnautovic left Eliaquim Mangala for dead down the right and sent in a fine cross which was met by substitute Diafra Sakho but the forward's effort was a terrible one, firing miles wide when well placed.

The Scot has yet to record his first three-point haul since replacing Slaven Bilic at the helm, but he was encouraged by what he saw from his players on this occasion.

Ederson was the first to talk, and claimed it's been happening for a while now: "I think it's the third consecutive game that we find it hard to reach the opponent's goal". "I think, if we had come away with something today, nobody would have been surprised by it".

"I feel great joy".

"It was a really good effort. We were much, much better". "We created more with two", he said.

"I thought we deserved to equalise".

"Eventually Manchester City will force you back. Hopefully no one will be injured", Guardiola said. 'We started really well but we lost our patience, ' Pep told the BBC.

"I think at the end it was [an] expression, I'm pretty sure he does not want to get injuries out of players".

"Arguably we had the best chances in the first half".

West Ham remain second bottom of the Premier League but were good value for their half-time lead against City, with Angelo Ogbonna heading home Aaron Cresswell's cross.

All eyes will be on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, as Manchester United host Manchester City in arguably the biggest game in recent Premier League history, as United look to stop their neighbours from marching to a seemingly inevitable League title.
