Title-chasing Manchester City moved level on points with Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal as bottom club West Ham were beaten 3-1 at Upton Park.
City dominated from kick-off, and it was no surprise when Yaya Toure rifled in the opener on the half hour.
The Irons rallied after the break and had appeals for a penalty turned down for handball against Yaya Toure, before the Ivory Coast midfielder saw his angled shot hit the post and go in off keeper Robert Green with substitute Adam Johnson wrapping things up with nine minutes left. James Tomkins headed in a late consolation for the Hammers.
