City ralenti par le West Ham de Bowen et Fabiański

A double from Jarrod Bowen in the first half, a penalty saved by Łukasz Fabiański in the last minutes, and the leader Manchester City lost two points on the lawn of West Ham despite a comeback in the second half (2-2). And this at the dawn of the last day of the championship, which could be announced grandiose.

West Ham 2-2 Manchester City

Goals: Bowen (24and & 45and) for the Hammers // Grealish (49and) & Coufal (CSC, 69and) for Citizens

It was an emotional whirlwind that took hold of the Olympic Stadium in London on Sunday: legend Mark Noble’s death – and tears -, the breathtaking double of Jarrod Bowen against the Premier League leader, the air conditioning in second half, the match point for Riyad Mahrez five minutes from time, Łukasz Fabiański who offers a point to his team and a migraine to the sky blue invader. A week after having shrunk Norwich (0-4), West Ham hangs the ogre City (2-2), which this Sunday is four units ahead of its runner-up Liverpool, who remains hopeful and will play Tuesday in Southampton. Before a spicy J38.

Bowen, jackhammer

Oleksandr Zinchenko lit the first wick (2and), provoking a big response from Hammers by Jarrod Bowen (3and) and Craig Dawson (4and). After the London Olympic Stadium tribute – in the sixteenth minute – for Noble (18 years and 549 games for West Ham and last home appearance, with his coming on for the last quarter of an hour), Dawson deflected a firecracker from Rodri (22and), and Fernandinho flirted with the frame of a beautiful satchel (23and). Folding without breaking, West Ham bulged his chest without even indulging, on a lobed ball from Pablo Fornals recovered by Bowen to eliminate Ederson (1-0, 24and).

Subsequently, facing a West Ham only occasionally leaving his camp, Aymeric Laporte attempted a Vincent Kompany (29and), Gabriel Jesus saw his left die at the foot of the upright (36and), Oleksandr Zinchenko crossed too much (38and) and Kevin De Bruyne did not worry Łukasz Fabiański on a free kick (45and). The locals, for their part, continued to shine in realism and the boiling Michail Antonio launched Bowen (left full axis as on the opener), for the left-handed double (2-0, 45and). City put the gas on the restart, thanks to a nice slamming volley from the stirring Jack Grealish (2-1, 49and). Fabiański had to work (51and56and).

After a quarter of an hour of pressure, the Mancunian defense began to panic: Bowen almost gave it another layer (61and), then Antonio crunched against Ederson (65and). But the embrace skyblue continued, and on a free kick from Riyad Mahrez, the unfortunate Vladimír Coufal put the two teams level (2-2, 69and). Rodri then found the gloves of the London doorman (74and), and Bowen missed the hat-trick again on a throw-in from Tomáš Souček and a half-volley deflected by Laporte’s calf (75and). We thought that Craig Dawson, by mowing down Jesus in the money timewas going to offer the three points to the men of Pep Guardiola, but Mahrez closed his foot and Fabiański started on the right side (86and). In the history of this 2021-2022 season, Mark Noble will undoubtedly not be the only one to remember this eventful meeting.

West Ham (4-2-3-1): Fabiański – Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell – Souček, Rice (c) – Bowen, Lanzini (Noble, 77and), Fornals (B. Johnson, 90and+2) – Antonio (Yarmolenko, 90and+5). Coach : David Moye.
