Report & Ratings: West Ham 0-4 Man City – 01/02/17
Gabriel Jesus scored his first City goal as the Blues tore West Ham apart at the London Stadium tonight
City, who left Aguero and Bravo on the bench on this occasion, led when Kevin de Bruyne played a one-two with Jesus before stroking home.
Four minutes later, the Blues doubled their lead when the impressive Leroy Sane beat two defenders and sent in a cross that was deflected into the path of David Silva, who poked it in the back of the net.
The game was as good as won before half-time when Raheem Sterling squared the ball to Jesus to tap home.
Yaya Toure added a fourth after the break from a penalty when Hammers debutant Jose Fonte brought down Raheem Sterling in the box.
West Ham, who made errors to lose possession for each of City’s three first-half goals, have been beaten heavily by the Blues twice at home in 2017, having lost 5-0 in their FA Cup meeting last month.
City are now only behind fourth-placed Liverpool on goal difference, 1 point off second place, and 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.
