Riyad Mahrez missed a late penalty for Manchester City, who had to settle for a point as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at West Ham United.



West Ham went ahead on 24 minutes through Jarrod Bowen, who took Pablo Fornals’ pass round Ederson to score.

Bowen doubled the lead just before the break, latching on to Michail Antonio’s pass to fire into the bottom corner.

Jack Grealish pulled one back for City four minutes after the break with a right-footed volley that was deflected in.

They were level when Mahrez’s cross was headed into his own net by Vladimir Coufal on 69 minutes.

Manchester City had the chance to go six points clear of Liverpool from the penalty spot after Gabriel Jesus had been brought down by Craig Dawson, but Mahrez’s spot-kick was saved by Lukasz Fabianski.

Manchester City are on 90 points, four above Liverpool, who play Southampton on Tuesday, before each side play their final match of the season on 22 May.

Manchester City need to win the final game of the season next weekend to be assured of being crowned champions, and Pep Guardiola wants the Manchester City fans to turn the streets of Manchester blue and give the game of their lives, too.

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola on Premier League match against West Ham on Sunday ,he said,”It was a really good game. I think we played more than decent in the first half. Chances were so difficult to attack them.

Very pleased to come back against West Ham like we did in this stadium. The transition with Antonio is so difficult to control and in two uncertain balls, it looks like nothing is happening, they put a ball in behind, Bowen gets it really well and finished.

We scored an early goal and had a really good second half. A point that we gained.

I can assure you of something – in one week our stadium will be sold out, will give them our lives and they will give theirs, all together.

To do this is an incredible privilege, after many years together. It is incredible.

To have our chance with our people, to win one game to be champions. I’m looking forward to it.”
