What you need to know:

  • The Argentina international claimed his 20th goal of the season, after a James Collins own-goal had gifted last season's English champions the lead, thus ending a run which had seen him fail to score a goal from open play at Eastlands since November 2.
  • Jesus Navas's counter-attack down the right ended with him crossing towards the far post, his pass being intercepted by Collins who sent the ball looping high over goalkeeper Adrian and into the goal via the underside of the crossbar.
  • Nor did matters improve for West Ham after the break and it required a superbly-timed tackle from Carl Jenkinson to halt Aguero as he appeared certain to convert from the corner of the six-yard box.

Sergio Aguero moved to the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts as his effort in a 2-0 win at home to West Ham on Sunday bolstered Manchester City's hopes of securing a top-four finish and Champions League football.
