West Ham Shock Man City

Manchester City’s title ambitions suffered a setback as Diafra Sakho scored for the sixth straight league game to help earn West Ham victory.
City, five points behind leaders Chelsea, fell behind when Morgan Amalfitano stabbed home Enner Valencia’s cut-back from three yards.
Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure hit the bar for the visitors before Sakho headed in Aaron Cresswell’s cross.
David Silva pulled one back with a curled shot into the far corner.
City poured forward in the closing stages in search of an equaliser, Stevan Jovetic denied by a fine Adriano save.
But Manuel Pellegrini’s men were poor overall, and West Ham full value for a third straight win that lifts them one point behind last season’s champions.
For long periods, City played like a side jaded after their long midweek Champions League trip to Russia, where they were held to a draw by CSKA Moscow after blowing a 2-0 lead.
