Man City defender Stones hails fellow goalscorer Dias: Outstanding all season

Manchester City defender John Stones hailed fellow goalscorer Ruben Dias after victory over West Ham.

Both defenders struck in the 2-1 win on Saturday.

"You can only give credit to him for moving countries, coming to a new club and playing the way he's played straight away," Stones said. "He's been outstanding and that's just down to him. It's a massive credit to him.

"We try and chip in and everyone's out there working hard. Sometimes it doesn't come off for the striker but today me and Ruben chipped in. That's part of us being such a good team, and such a collective in big games.

"Everyone chips in or sometimes the person you don't expect steps up and today it was me and Ruben. I'm glad to get the three points and keep the run going."
