The home side struck first in spectacular style through Michail Antonio, but were pegged back early in the second half by away sub Phil Foden.

He equalised in the 51st minute with a sharp near-post finish, and City dominated thereafter but could not find a victor with Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez coming the closest.

City, transformed by the introductions of Foden and fit-again Kevin De Bruyne, dominated the second half but were unable to add to their solitary goal.

They also lost Sergio Aguero to a probable hamstring muscle problem at half-time.

Injuries and have taken their toll on City, so much so that Guardiola named an unchanged starting line-up for the first time since October 2017, some 172 games ago.

"In the second half we were better, we scored and had the chances at the end but we could not convert them, so we drew".

"We started really well".

"I would prefer to have results but we have to analyse where we are". "We didn't have time for regeneration".

United States sets new peak of COVID-19 cases

COVID-19 per-day rate falls; two additional deaths reported
The region's positivity rate decreased slightly from 9.4% to 9.3%, well above the state's threshold of 8%. Prior to that, the case total hadn't exceeded that amount since April 25.

"But the players gave everything on the pitch". Guardiola will take solace that his team have only conceded twice in the PL in their last three games.

The Hammers will be encouraged by another point, following on from Sunday's dramatic comeback at Tottenham, and given that their record in this fixture is atrocious.

City have eight points from five games and are 11th, below West Ham on goal difference.

The Hammers took the lead on 18 minutes, Michail Antonio using his strength to hold off City centre-back Ruben Dias and brilliantly overhead a Vladimir Coufal cross past Ederson. Cancelo made an incisive burst down the left and aimed his cross into the West Ham area, where Foden controlled and turned in one motion before driving his low shot past Lukasz Fabianski.

He later said, "I think the first half we were a really good side and put them under a lot of pressure and our gameplan worked perfectly against City".

"We did some good things, more in the first half, the second half was very hard".

"It was different to Tottenham last week because they had to try and hang on and keep something, and they did". Aguero hasn't scored in the top flight since January and is notoriously slow to return to his best after injuries.
