GETTY Man City vs West Ham LIVE

David Moyes was "gutted" after West Ham's battling performance at the Etihad Stadium ended in defeat and he questioned teenage defender Declan Rice's role in Manchester City's victor.

"He pretty much ignored me until City's offer came in".

With defensive n tactics clearly frustrating some at City, ESPN Brasil interviewed a few players after Sunday's game against West Ham, and they all agreed that other clubs have been too defensive. The opponent doesn't want to play.

City's victory was their 13th in succession in the Premier League, a club record 20th straight in all competitions and restored an eight-point lead at the top of the table. I can understand. I'm not judging - but it is hard.

"But today, since after five minutes in the second half, I felt we were going to score".

I'm not sure it is the most exciting I've ever seen, because there were times when Arsenal's Invincibles played some really incredible stuff. "If we can take something in Fergie time, it is welcome, a pleasure".

But Guardiola is taking nothing for granted.

"It means we have done 39 points in a row".

West Ham manager David Moyes, on his part, said: "I have to say it was a really good effort".

West Ham made it hard for the home side to break them down and Delph admits it is getting more hard as teams set out to stifle Pep Guardiola's normally free-scoring side.

"But I don't think we will be in trouble". We've played against a really good side, everybody knows it, and I thought for long periods we frustrated them.

As quoted by the Mail, he said: "We're gutted that we lost it".

Puel has encouraged a more possession based approach since his arrival at The King Power and has tweaked the teams tactics slightly; Riyad Mahrez has moved into a free role behind Jamie Vardy and talented youngster Demarai Gray has been promoted to the starting XI. "I would hope that being a centre-half in the position he was in you would deal with it, you would stop the ball getting through or you would head it away". The difficulty in beating English sides has now been related to the opponent's tactics, at least by some in the Manchester City squad.

"Then in the Community Shield, with two minutes to go we were going to penalties it was 2-2 against Manchester United at the time".

This is the player that received the biggest kick in the teeth and never found the power to get back up to his feet.

The Irons, who appeared more organised than they have done in recent matches, finally got the goal they deserved when Angelo Ogbonna headed home from an Aaron Cresswell cross and scored his first in the Premier League just before the break.
