Manchester City survived a major scare on Sunday as they had to come from a goal down to beat a hard-fighting West Ham team 2-1 in their Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

The hard-earned victory secured by the Cityzens was quite remarkable as it is a record-equaling 13th consecutive Premier League win.

Many had written the Hammers off before kickoff, but the relegation-threatened visitors went into half time with a deserved lead courtesy of Angelo Ogbonna's header right on the stroke of the interval.

City were far from their free-flowing best but, having scored late winners in their last three matches against Feyenoord, Huddersfield Town and Southampton, the Premier League leaders again struck in the final 10 minutes through David Silva to keep their remarkable winning run alive.

In addition to equalling the Premier League record of 13 consecutive wins - which restores their eight-point lead at the top of the table - City have now emerged victorious from their last 20 games across all competitions.

Next stop for Pep Guardiola and his team in the league is the derby clash against Manchester United.
