Manchester City came from behind to win a record-equalling 13th Premier League match in a row with victory over stubborn West Ham at Etihad Stadium.

Angelo Ogbonna's header on the stroke of half-time put the lowly Hammers ahead, but Nicolas Otamendi responded with a predatory finish shortly after the break.

David Silva won it for City, acrobatically converting a Kevin de Bruyne pass with seven minutes left.
Victory meant Pep Guardiola's side re-established their eight-point lead over Manchester United, who they play at Old Trafford next Sunday (16:30 GMT).

They also equalled the longest winning run within a top-flight season, matching Sunderland and Preston (1891-92), Arsenal (2001-02) and Chelsea (2016-17).

Pep Guardiola speaking to Match of the Day: "We started really well but we lost our patience. We didn't have any rhythm because Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time.

"It was similar to the last few games, in the second half I thought we would score. They played 10 players inside the box, it was almost impossible.

"It's a big victory. It showed what we are. We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me. We created more with two.
