Ederson made a fine save on Andy Carroll as West Ham managed to stay in the match despite an onslaught of Man City attempts.
The Citizens would need a spot kick to find their way onto the scoreboard, though, with Bernardo Silva felled inside a sea of West Ham tacklers in the 18.
Aguero finished his chance to reclaim the Premier League’s lead in goals from Mohamed Salah.
