Nigerian International Victor Moses continued his good form for West Ham as he scored in his first away match for the Hammers against Manchester City yesterday, the Nation reports.
The on loan Chelsea winger had a glorious debut last weekend in the 2-0 win against Newcastle United at Upton Park and showed abilities again at the Etihad when he hit a beautiful strike past Joe Hart within the first five minutes of play.
That goal spurred the Hammers and they duly grabbed the second goal of the match through Senegalese forward Diafra Sakho who tucked in a rebound after Joe Hart punched away Wintson Reid’s header from a Dmitry Payet corner.
However, the home side pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time when record signing Kevin de Bruyne received a pass from current African footballer of the Year, Yaya Toure and coolly finished from 20 yards in his first premier league start in front of the Etihad fans.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic took out Victor Moses after an hour of play as he freshened the team in the face of heavy Manchester City attack which was intensified with the introduction of Nigerian wonder kid Kelechi Iheanacho in the last six minutes but the away side held on for a great away win.
The Hammers have now beaten Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City away in six premier league matches and Moses goal was the first the Citizens conceded this season.
