Diafra Sakho and Victor Moses have scored for West Ham, which leads unbeaten City 2-1 at half after Kevin De Bruyne answered with his first City goal.

West Ham almost went down early when Yaya Toure powered a header that Adrian pushed over the bar.

And then Holy Moses. The on-loan Chelsea man was given a lot of room to operate by Eliaquim Mangala, and hit a low bounding shot past an outstretched Joe Hart.

Sergio Aguero missed a chance to equalize when he moved around a sliding Adrian but pushed his shot through traffic wide of the frame from 17 yards.

And Sakho netted off a scrum in the box to give the visitors a surprising 2-0 lead with an hour to play.

Adrian made a pair of tight saves on Aguero in the 40th minute, and sent the match to halftime 2-0.

Then De Bruyne calmly settled a pass from the left, setting up a curling low right-footed shot that beat a diving Adrian.
