I did that with my instinct – Mohammed Kudus on his bicycle kick goal against Man City

West Ham United’s Mohammed Kudus stole the show on the final day of the Premier League season with a spectacular bicycle kick against Manchester City, despite the Hammers ultimately falling short.

Facing a daunting task at the Etihad Stadium, the Hammers found themselves two goals down early on thanks to a Phil Foden brace. However, Kudus ignited a potential comeback with a stunning overhead kick in the 42nd minute, flicking the ball up before unleashing a perfect volley past City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

The Ghanaian’s wonder goal sent a jolt through the West Ham side and narrowed the deficit to 2-1 going into halftime. Unfortunately, City reestablished their two-goal advantage through Rodri’s strike in the 59th minute, securing a 3-1 victory and their fourth consecutive Premier League title.

“As an attacker, I was doing my best to get the team back in the game,” Kudus told the club’s official website. “We didn’t give up at 2-0, and it gave the team the energy to fight back. I’m glad it went in. It was one of those moments where instinct took over, and I trusted my abilities. It’s not the first time I’ve done something like this.”

While Kudus’ moment of brilliance couldn’t propel West Ham to victory, it undoubtedly showcased his talent and potential. The 24-year-old has now bagged 14 goals across all competitions in his debut Premier League season, a promising sign for both club and country.

Kudus will now switch his focus to the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifiers, where he’ll look to lead the Black Stars to success against Mali and the Central African Republic.
