West Ham vs Manchester City Highlights: Premier League 2022-23, WHU 0-2 MCI – City start their title defence with a 2-0 win over West Ham. Erling Haaland scored both of the goals, one in either half to seal the points. The first came from the penalty spot, while the second finished off a lightning-quick counter-attack when he coolly slotted it past the keeper. De Bruyne also had a goal disallowed in the first half as Gundogan was offside in the build-up. Follow West Ham vs Manchester City goals and highlights on InsideSport.IN

Hammers boss David Moyes was forced to start full-back Ben Johnson at centre-back alongside Kurt Zouma, with Angelo Ogbonna, Issa Diop and new signing Nayef Aguerd all out injured.

It took a while for City to get going, and they thought they had taken the lead when a neat move down the left led to Haaland playing in Ilkay Gundogan, who squared for Kevin De Bruyne to sweep home, only for the offside flag to go up.

Moyes’s injury problems mounted further as Lukasz Fabianski had to go off after taking a knock in a challenge for the ball with Haaland, Alphonse Areola replacing him.

One of Areola’s first contributions was to bring down Haaland when he was through on goal to concede a 36th-minute penalty, which the Norway striker dispatched calmly, sending Areola the wrong way.

Declan Rice skied a presentable chance over after a Gundogan error early in the second half, and some uncharacteristic misplaced City passes crept in as the Hammers looked for an equaliser, turning to their own new striker Gianluca Scamacca to come on just before the hour.

Haaland struck again after 65 minutes, though, when a City counter-attack saw De Bruyne slide his new team-mate in and the former Borussia Dortmund man placed his shot coolly past Areola to seal the points.

City bounced back from the Community Shield loss to put their first points on the table. Next up for them is Bournemouth at home. Moyes will be hoping West Ham can bounce back quickly as they travel to Nottingham Forest for their next game.
