City were aiming to extend our unbeaten run in all competitions to 11 matches in our first match of 2023.
With Arsenal and Chelsea drawing 1-1 in the lunchtime kick-off, three points would also close the gap on the WSL summit for Gareth Taylor's side.
But standing in our way were a resurgent West Ham outfit who had won three of their past five matches at the Chigwell Construction Stadium.
Everything pointed towards an exciting encounter, and it certainly fit the bill.
