Manchester City's title hopes suffer ANOTHER blow as West Ham hold out for a draw despite super sub Phil Foden cancelling out Michail Antonio's stunning overhead kick early in the second half

Phil Foden came off the bench to secure Manchester City a 1-1 draw at West Ham.

The young midfielder, on at half-time to replace Sergio Aguero, took just six minutes to haul Pep Guardiola's side level.

West Ham had taken a first-half lead through a spectacular bicycle kick from Michail Antonio.
