David Silva celebrates after scoring Manchester City's winner against West Ham

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta had a special message for fans of Manchester City as he made his return to the Etihad Stadium to play against his former club on Sunday.

Gabriel Jesus said the opponents don't even try to win: "We took on teams that came with the intention of drawing, more the draw than the victory".

"I said to the guys, anyone who doesn't want to play against Donetsk tell me now please because I am going to prepare the game to win", he added.

West Ham manager, David Moyes believes Guardiola's Manchester City has not done enough to write their names in the PL history books just yet.

"We started really well but we lost our patience". We didn't have any rhythm because (West Ham goalkeeper) Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time (with the ball).

"After that he's trying, but he gave minutes in the last two games, he's ready...but it's not easy for him with 10 players there [in the box], there's nearly no space". We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me.

Silva converted Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant pass from close range in the 83rd minute as City maintained their blistering form this season.

Star striker Sergio Aguero was substituted late on against West Ham having only taken two shots on goal for the match, yet Guardiola claims a recent dip in form is partly due to his recovery from a previous vehicle accident, coupled with more stringent opposition marking. Most of their shots were from outside the box and we filled the box and made it hard for them to score. "We showed much better discipline as a team and now we need to move on". We spoke a lot about defending set-pieces but they are taller.

Guardiola expects an aerial bombardment from United after seeing his side concede another goal from a set-piece.
