For large periods on Sunday, however, City were frustrated by an organised West Ham but their sheer will to win proved too much for the Hammers as Guardiola's side restored their comfortable lead ahead of next weekend's Manchester derby.
But after a few hard games recently where smaller clubs such as Huddersfield Town, Southampton and West Ham have stifled them for long periods, are City due a loss after relying on so many late winners or will Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and co find a way to win once again?
Free-scoring City found it hard to break down the well-organised Hammers after Angelo Ogbonnna's shock opener just before half-time, but they kept their heads and equalised through Nicolas Otamendi 12 minutes after the break before David Silva volleyed a fine victor with seven minutes left.More news: Warren Moon Accused of Sexually Assaulting, Harassing, Drugging Assistant
Manchester City's third successive late victory "shows what we are", manager Pep Guardiola said after David Silva's 83rd-minute victor saw his side equal a Premier League-record 13th successive triumph.
"We missed two good chances in the first half and had one right at the end", said Moyes. Spaniard De Gea denied Arsenal on several occasions with a series of breath-taking saves, the best of which came minutes into the second half when he denied Alexandre Lacazette from close range before spectacularly saving on the rebound from Alexis Sanchez. West Ham, who have won only twice all season, sit 19th - three points behind West Bromwich Albion in 17th. "Getting a win in your first game - let's hope it's onwards and upwards, boys", said delighted Allardyce.
The outing was the youngster's seventh Premier League appearance this season, with his overall appearances amounting to ten.
Should the two time Premier League champions break the record at Old Trafford on Sunday, it would all but confirm a third title for them. "All of the forwards are really important for us". David Silva was the late match victor this time round for Pep Guardiola's men as they recorded yet another consecutive victory.More news: Alaska Airlines to put limits on 'smart bags' starting January 15
Chelsea's Eden Hazard struggled with injury in the season's opening weeks but now the Belgian is back to his best and terrorising Premier League defenders.
But Pep came out and said there was no way he was selling him.
