Man City 0-2 West Ham: Player ratings

West Ham shocked Manchester City in the WSL on Sunday afternoon, enjoying a surprise 2-0 win in Manchester and condemning the hosts to a fourth successive defeat in all competitions.

City dominated the ball throughout the 90 minutes and created plenty of chances. But it was Dagny Brynjarsdottir’s crucial header for West Ham in the first half that gave the visitors an unexpected lead something to hold on to…and they did.

The hosts huffed and puffed, even having the ball in the net at one stage – only for Ellen White to have strayed offside in the build up – and forced Hammers stopper Mackenzie Arnold into a number of saves in either half. Laura Coombs also hit the post for City from distance.

But as the pressure on the West Ham goal built in stoppage, any chance of a late equaliser were dashed when Yui Hasegawa, who had assisted Brynjarsdottir in the first half, capitalised on a short back-pass from City left-back Demi Stokes and lobbed a back pedalling Karima Taeib.

West Ham move up to fourth with the win, their second in the WSL this season, only two points behind champions Chelsea. An injury-plagued City, meanwhile, sit ninth, having already lost three times as many WSL games four games into this season than in the whole of last season.
