Harry Sherlock reports: “Not quite the fireworks Upton Park was expecting at the start of the second half, with City happy to maintain possession and look to break West Ham down slowly. The Hammers, however, look dangerous on the break, with the pace of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho continuing to cause problems.”
Comical booking! Alex Song can’t keep his balance and slips over. But with David Silva in pursuit, he can’t get back to his feet in time and - wait for it - grabs hold of the football with both hands! Why? Only Song knows. Booking.

Aguero-Dzeko partnership not really working. Aguero being forced deep, while Dzeko's completed five passes. Jovetic needed at half-time.— Ewan Roberts (@EwanRoberts) October 25, 2014
Harry Sherlock reports: “West Ham are given a rousing standing ovation as they head off the pitch at half-time and rightly so. They have been absolutely superb here, and are good value for their 1-0 lead. In fact, they have had chances to double that advantage and will feel hard done by not to have scored again. Manchester City, meanwhile, spent the majority of that first period waking up - Yaya Toure especially - and have threatened only sporadically.”
Harry Sherlock reports: “West Ham should be 2-0 up! A wonderfully inventive free-kick routine leads Morgan Amalfitano to cross from the byline, but nobody can quite get their toe to it to prod beyond Joe Hart. So, so close.”
Vincent Kompany can't keep up with Enner Valencia. The defender tugs at the shirt of Valencia before bringing him crashing to ground seconds later with a slide tackle. He does win the ball but also brings down the man. Yellow card.
Manchester City are struggling to deal with Enner Valencia. Another low cross from Aaron Cresswell is played in from the left and Valencia - off balance and with his body facing away from goal - turns sharply to shoot wide of the near post.
Harry Sherlock reports: “Manuel Pellegrini is static on the touchline, standing still with his arms folded. He is perhaps perplexed at how slow City have been, with West Ham buzzing around them and causing Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala problems. They are 1-0 down and could fall further behind if they do not buck their ideas up.”
And let's not forget the almighty showdown taking place at 17:00 BST. Luis Suarez is returning from his four-month biting ban - will he start?
Millwall host Cardiff in the early Championship game of the day. The second half has just kicked off and it's still goalless. Follow LIVE updates on all the latest scores from around Europe below.

Enner Valencia is causing plenty of problems for the Manchester City defence but appears to have picked up a knock. Moments after another menacing run down the right sees him get the better of Eliaquim Mangala (again), the striker is down and clutching his arm. He should be fine to carry on.
Jesus Navas plays a quick corner to the near post and West Ham switch off. Edin Dzeko makes a sharp run to meet it but can only guide his shot just over the top. Clever play.
GOAL: Well, well, well! Morgan Amalfitano has given West Ham the lead and Upton Park has exploded into chants of ‘Who are Ya, Who are Ya?!’ Enner Valencia bursts beyond Eliaquim Mangala and crosses to the back post, where the former West Brom star is waiting to poke in. West Ham lead!
