It was a pleasant scene.” Ake, who scored Man City’s winning goal, told Sky Sports after the match, “It was a tough game. The opponent defended well. After scoring the first goal, more space opened up. We have to continue as we do now. It’s not over yet. Next Leeds. The game will be difficult. Haaland is crazy. He works really hard.

We have to continue as we do now.” “I can’t believe it. He scores important goals in really important matches. I’m very satisfied. He’s a really unique person and he’s special. He deserves a ‘Guard of Honor’. He’s set an amazing record.” Losing West Ham manager Moyes told BBC Sport: “Today we lost some of our key players.
