West Ham deal City Hammer blow
After City’s 4-1 thrashing of Spurs last weekend few would have fancied West Ham’s chance seven days later. But football is a funny old game and the champions found themselves struggling against Sam Allardyce’s men.

Two of fluid attacks were on in form in the Premier League at the weekend via Manchester City and Southampton.

But Manuel Pellegrini would tell you that it can be the perfect system...
