Sky Blues Barely Dodge Getting Nailed by West Ham

So much for being unstoppable.

Except for Sergio Agüero, that is.

Manchester City's East London invasion was stopped at the gates of Upton Park in spite of the Argentine international's pair of strikes, which saved the Citizens a point as part of the day's  2-2 stalemate.

West Ham escapted unharmed -- with a point, even -- despite facing a Manchester City squad that had been firing on all sixes lately.

Enner Valencia got the deflected assist. It was like finding Nemo.

West Ham literally gave away the advantage as Carl Jenkinson dropped the beat on City's top star:

Agüero never misses one-on-one, let alone a penalty.

The Hammers were truly into the hospitality thing, and Valencia didn't mind:

Dude always does more than punch a time clock for his dosh.
