Foden rescues point for City in West Ham draw
NEWS DIGEST – Manchester City continued their stuttering start to the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at West Ham.
The Hammers last beat City in September 2015 but Michail Antonio’s magnificent overhead kick gave them an 18th-minute lead.
City produced more of the ponderous play that saw them drop points against Leicester City and Leeds United until Phil Foden came off the bench to inspire their most convincing passage of the match.
Foden struck a 51st-minute equaliser but, as they did in the first period, Pep Guardiola’s side tailed off and even the appearance of a fit-again Kevin De Bruyne from the bench could not inspire a victory.
City have eight points from five games and are 11th, below West Ham on goal difference.
