Man City responded to early pressure from the Hammers, who started the game well.

They had thrown high balls into Man City’s penalty area in the early stages as they tried to unsettle the Premier League champions’ defence.

A whipped corner caused particular problems for Pep Guardiola’s side – but that was all their own business.

New signing Erling Haaland and Ruben Dias both tried to clear the ball.

However, the Man City centre-back ended up getting in the way of his goalkeeper, which he accidentally crashed into.

After recovering from the ground, Ederson was seen with a black eye and a bump on his face after the collision.

He continued the game despite his pain.

On the other hand, West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski later had to be substituted before half-time for Alphonse Areola injured.

It’s been a weekend of serious injuries with Ben Godfrey on the stretcher yesterday after suffering a terrible leg problem against Chelsea.

One wrote on Twitter: “The season is 2 minutes old and Ruben Dias has already given Ederson a black eye. This season will be fun.”

Another said with a crying emoji: “Ederson that eye doesn’t look good.”
