  1. GOAL - Man City 3-1 West Ham

    Raheem Sterling

    City press and press until they force a mistake from West Ham. Leroy Sane picks up the loose ball and slides in a sublime pass to Raheem Sterling.

    The England forward it clean through, one-on-one with the keeper and he waits before slotting it into the bottom right corner.

    Easy as you like.

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Believe it or not, there is actually a third-place play-off in the Asia Cup.

    Yes, I know, I couldn't believe it either.

    So whoever loses this match will face Newcastle in a battle for third. A thriller, I'm sure...

  3. Post update

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Andriy Yarmolenko threads a lovely ball through to Ryan Fredericks, who has made an overlapping run down the right.

    He can't quite get there though, as Claudio Bravo comes sliding off his line to snuff out the danger.

  4. Post update

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    City's new signing, Rodri, is seeing plenty of the ball in this second half. He turns on the edge but can't get it wide to Raheem Sterling.

    Danilo plays a lovely ball over the top for Leroy Sane, who hits it early but it's well saved.

    Raheem Sterling picks up the rebound but strikes it straight down the middle.

  6. CLOSE!

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Robert Snodgrass cuts back an inviting ball into the centre but Andriy Yarmolenko's shot is blocked.

    A few moments later, Javier Hernandez's flick flies over the bar.

  7. Post update

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Raheem Sterling has a pop from long-range and it bounces off the back of Angelo Ogbonna.

    Bit ambitious...

  8. Post update

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    The introduction of City's "big four" has sparked the crowd. There's huge cheers any time Kevin de Bruyne gets a foot on it.

    It took them a few moments to register who Leroy Sane was without his bushy afro hair but they've clocked on thanks to his bursts of pace down the left.

    Here they come, it's Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane.

    Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere are among those to come off for West Ham, while David Silva is replaced for City. He passes the armband over to De Bruyne.

    Straight back to business for David Silva. He's already got a goal and it was a cracker!

  12. Post update

    HT: Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Teams can make 10 substitutions in total in each game at the Asia Cup. But they cannot make more than four at once.

    Wolves and Newcastle both made plenty of second-half changes in their match earlier.

    If you missed it, Wolves thrashed the Magpies 4-0 in a dominant display. You can read the report here.

  14. Post update

    HT: Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Will Pep bring on any of the big guns in the second half? Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva are all waiting patiently.


    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    A very entertaining first half! Felipe Anderson has been electric for the Hammers and City's youngsters have done themselves proud.

  16. Post update

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Michail Antonio chases another ball in the box and manages to keep it in. He lays it off to Manuel Lanzini but the Argentine's strike is comfortably held by Claudio Bravo at the near post.

  17. CLOSE!

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    It's all going off! Felipe Anderson is pulling the strings again. His ball through to Michail Antonio is a good one but the striker's touch takes him wide.

    He waits for support from Manuel Lanzini, who slips it right to Anderson on the edge. His shot skips inches past the left post.

  18. CLOSE!

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Declan Rice plays a nice ball into the box for Felipe Anderson. He waits before lifting it over to Rice on the far side.

    Manuel Lanzini makes a run behind but Rice doesn't see him and goes for goal, dragging his shot straight into the keeper's hands.

    He apologises to Lanzini and is annoyed at himself as he jogs back.

    Manuel Lanzini
  19. CLOSE!

    Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Lukas Nmecha almost gets a second. Tommy Doyle gets the better of the full-back on the right and pings a dangerous ball into the box.

    Nmecha's movement is good but he can't quite get on the end of it.

  20. GOAL - Man City 2-1 West Ham

    Lukas Nmecha

    He takes it himself and confidently slots it past the keeper with his left foot. Another decent penalty.

    What a turnaround!
