Manchester City player ratings for their 2-2 draw against West Ham

Manchester City, Six Sports

Manchester City spoiled their chance of lifting the title with one game in hand against a determinant West Ham.

It was an emotional day for the West Ham fans as they bid goodbye to their homegrown lad and club captain Mark Noble.

Therefore, West Ham started the match on a perfect note. Jarrod Bowen scored two quick-fire goals against the visitors to give West Ham a surprising lead.

However, Jack Grealish pulled one back for the visitors just after the halftime. After that, City started out with their onslaught and kept pressing for the equalizer.

The equalizer for City came from an own goal from Vladimir Coufal.

However, after that City gifted two chances to the hosts who failed to make most of the chances.

Late on in the game City got a penalty and Riyad Mahrez had the perfect chance to stage the turnaround. However, a fabulous save from Lucas Fabianski kept denying the visitors the three points that they were so eager to collect.
