David Silva scores late to confirm yet another late victory for Manchester City as they extend their lead at the top of the table. An 83 minute decider from Silva extends their lead to 8 points after a 2-1 victory against West Ham on Sunday.


Silva converted De Bryune’s terrific pass from a close range as City maintained their ferocious run of form with a late victory.

Earlier Nicolas Otamendi converted substitute Gabrial Jesus’s pass in the 57th minute to equalize after defender Angelo Ogbonna headed for a lead just before the end of the first half.

“It was difficult, teams seem to come here and get every man behind the ball, not interested in anything but parking the bus,” City midfielder Fabian Delph told Sky Sports.

“But we have players like David Silva in the team, so we knew if we kept going we’d get our chances. We knew we had to be patient, we came out flying in the second half, we tried to explain to the boys we still had time and then we started to relax a bit more and found those spaces.

“We want to win the derby but we are taking it each game at a time.”

After United defeated rivals Arsenal 3-1 on Saturday, they cut the lead to five points, however City did not loose any points to extend their lead to 8 points again. Meanwhile Chelsea stand in the third position, 11 points below Manchester city and forth placed Liverpool are in a 14 points deficit.
