Comfortably saved all of the efforts aimed at his goal but showed a rare lapse in concentration on a few occasions which caused a slight scare among West Ham's back line.
Had a solid enough game at full back but was at times overrun by Gael Clichy's movement in the final third.
Kept his distribution simple which allowed West Ham to build from the back. Collins also opted for a no-nonsense approach to his defending which kept Carlos Tevez moderately quiet inside the box. Booked.
Had an easy time in the first half against the cumbersome Edin Dzeko but rarely ventured out of his half. Booked.
Didn't get on the ball much and at times looked hurried in his clearances.
Hit the crossbar with a well-taken effort in the second half following a sweeping West Ham move. Saw plenty of the ball but lacked the conviction when taking on Gael Clichy and often played the safe option. Booked for chopping down Carlos Tevez.
When given space, Noble looked a superb central midfielder with an excellent range of passing. However, Manchester City's three-man midfield often denied him time on the ball and as a result, Noble looked rushed when in possession.
Not the 25-year-old's best game in the center of West Ham's midfield. Took too long in possession on several occasions and was eventually replaced by Gary O'Neil.
A quiet afternoon for the midfielder saw his well-taken effort in the fourth minute wrongly ruled out for offside. Was often bypassed in midfield as West Ham opted to play it direct from the back up to Andy Carroll.
Guilty of giving away possession on a few occasions in the first half by playing five-yard passes behind his teammates. Looked threatening when in a wide position against Kolo Toure and crossed well but didn't do that enough throughout the game.
Isolated in attack for the majority of his time of the pitch, the England international performed his usual task of holding up play to decent effect.
The England international was a spectator for the majority of the game as West Ham failed to register an effort on target. Despite this, Hart would have been concerned with Gael Clichy's lapse in concentration which allowed Yossi Benayoun to strike his effort against the crossbar.
Offered very little going forward which resulted in Manchester City having virtually no outlet on the right flank throughout the game. Solid enough as a defender.
Was more of an outlet on the left wing, as opposed to Kolo Toure on the right flank, but the Frenchman's concentration was called into question early on as he allowed Yossi Benayoun to strike Joe Hart's crossbar in the first half.
In only his third Premier League appearance this season, the 19-year-old looked composed alongside Vincent Kompany at center back. Nastasic won the majority of his aerial battles and was solid enough when passing out from the back.
Dealt with Andy Carroll comfortably and formed an assured partnership alongside Matija Nastasic. Didn't look troubled when Carlton Cole was introduced either.
Bright in possession and saw a lot of the ball in the center of Manchester City's midfield but the movement in the champions' attack restricted the Frenchman's effectiveness in his distribution.
Sat very deep in the first half and was redundant for large parts of the game as Manchester City only had Andy Carroll to contend with in attack. Despite his side's dominance after the break, the Ivorian still screened the back four as opposed to getting forward which seemed a waste.
Spurned Manchester City's best chance of the game in the second half as he screwed his effort inside the box wide when one-on-one with Jussi Jaaskelainen. Looked comfortable in possession, keeping his passes short and sweet.
Looked every inch a towering striker shoehorned into a winger's position. Dzeko lumbered his way through the first half and looked awkward both in possession and in his attempts to cut inside. In fairness, Kolo Toure's reluctance to venture forward was also a factor in Manchester City's non-existent attack on the right flank.
Was the brightest of Manchester City's front three, perhaps as a result of being played through the center, rather than out wide. Increased the tempo after the break and was the source of the visitors' attack on most occasions. Replaced by Javi Garcia to a standing ovation from the West Ham fans.
Another frustrating afternoon for the Italian as he looked uncomfortable out wide while Tevez played through the middle. Had little influence after the break and was replaced by Sergio Aguero with 21 minutes to go.
