Goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho secured a 2-1 home win for Manchester City over fourth-placed West Ham United to move the champions within a point of Chelsea at the top.

Pep Guardiola's side broke the deadlock after 33 minutes thanks to the trickery of Riyad Mahrez, who created the opening as Gundogan scored from close range. City hit the woodwork for a second time four minutes before the break when Joao Cancelo's long-range shot was parried by Lukasz Fabianski and Mahrez's follow-up smacked the upright.
