Premier League - West Ham United v Manchester City

Goalkeeper stars late on in 1-1 draw after spectacular Antonio strike and Foden equaliser

Late saves from Lukasz Fabianski earned West Ham United their first point against Manchester City since 2016 in a 1-1 draw at London Stadium.

West Ham went ahead against the run of play on 18 minutes with a brilliant overhead kick by Michail Antonio from Vladimir Coufal’s cross.

Phil Foden equalised six minutes after replacing Sergio Aguero at half-time, turning smartly to convert Joao Cancelo’s cross.

Kevin De Bruyne also came off the bench as City pushed for a winner, but were denied by Fabianski and resolute West Ham defending.

Arthur Masuaku made a vital 84th-minute block on Riyad Mahrez.

Two minutes later, Fabianski denied Raheem Sterling one-on-one, before tipping Mahrez's shot on to a post in stoppage time.

West Ham, four matches unbeaten, are 11th on eight points. City lie a place below on goal difference.
