West Ham vs Man City LIVE: Gabriel Jesus goal puts reigning champions in front

Follow the latest updates live from the Premier League clash between West Ham United and Manchester City and the reigning champions open their account to make it three title triumphs in a row.

City kept their summer recruitment drive modest with only the £62m signing of midfielder Rodri making a dent in their transfer budget until the late addition of Joao Cancelo, but they already have one trophy in the bag following last weekend’s Community Shield triumph over Liverpool. West Ham also broke their club-record transfer to sign £45m striker Sebastien Haller in the hope of propelling Manuel Pellegrini’s side up the table from their 10th-place finish last season, having also recruited attacking midfielder Pablo Fornals and Swiss forward Albian Ajeti.

The Hammers held firm for the opening 24 minutes, but with their first real chance City showed how clinical they can be as Gabriel Jesus nipped in front of Issa Diop to open the scoring. Follow the live action below.
