West Ham ends Man City's unbeaten streak

THE unbeaten run of English Premier League leader Manchester City came to a grinding halt, beaten 2-1 at home by West Ham.

A stunning early strike by Victor Moses marked the end of a 572-minute stretch in which City had not conceded a goal this season, before Diafra Sakho made it 2-0.

City's $120 million man, Kevin de Bruyne, pulled one back on 45 minutes, but West Ham was able to hang on to win its third away game of the season, the first two victories coming against Arsenal and Liverpool.

The heroes for the Hammers, who moved to second on the table, were keeper Adrian and Kiwi centre-back Winston Reid (both pictured), who made 20 clearances, five interceptions and won the ball back nine times, more than any player.

Despite the loss, City retained a three-point buffer at the top of the table from West Ham and Leicester City which maintained its unbeaten run with a 2-2 draw at Stoke.

At the other end of the table, the disastrous start continued for Sunderland and Newcastle, who have just two points to show from their opening six matches.

Sunderland was beaten 2-0 by newly-promoted Bournemouth while Newcastle was beaten 2-1 at home by Watford which jumped to ninth in its return to the top tier.

Not surprisingly, the clash between Chelsea and Arsenal produced its usual amount of drama, the Gunners beaten 2-0 after defender Gabriel and midfielder Santi Cazorla were sent off.

SCORES (home teams first): Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0, Aston Villa 0 West Brom 1, Bournemouth 2 Sunderland 0, Newcastle 1 Watford 2, Stoke City 2 Leicester City 2, Swansea 0 Everton 0, Manchester City 1 West Ham 2.
