Manchester City removed Arsenal from the top of the table after winning 3-0 over West Ham at Etihad on the Premier League Game Week 34 Wednesday. Erling Haaland scored one, setting a new record for the number of goals in a single campaign in the domestic competition (35). The Citizens almost scored the opener in the ninth minute when Riyad Mahrez fired a shot outside the penalty box. However, West Ham’s Lukas Fabianski saved the ball.
West Ham forced the home team to an endless draw in the first half after several attempts from Riyad Mahrez, and Haaland failed to score the opener for the Premier League defending champions.
