West Ham Utd 1 Man City 3

West Ham are now four points adrift of safety after going down 3-1 at home to title-chasers Man City at the Boleyn this afternoon.

With just one game to play before Christmas, Avram Grant's side are in serious danger of going into the holiday period bottom of the table - a position from which only one team has managed to survive since the Premier League's inception.

Yaya Toure gave the visitors a half time lead with a fiercely-struck drive on the half hour mark. But it wasn't until the 74th minute until that lead was doubled when Rob Green was credited with an own goal after Toure's close range strike rebounded off the post and rebounded off the unfortunate 'keeper.

Sub Andy Johnson added a third with the Hammers defence at sixes and sevens nine minutes from time before James Tomkins notched a consolation goal with a header from a corner.

Avram Grant revealed after the game that he was annoyed by referee Phil Dowd's decision not to award a penalty for a fairly obvious second half hand ball with the score at 0-1.

Grant has regularly criticised referees for decisions going against his team this season.
