Superb Manchester City thrash West Ham to close gap at top

Fernandinho

Manchester City winger Nolito has insisted City must not allow past victories over West Ham to affect their performance in Wednesday's Premier League clash.

Ahead of their Premier League fixture at West Ham United on Wednesday night, City unveiled their newly decorated coach, complete with club crest and celebrating players on the side. "The wide players need to make their crosses count, Carroll and co need to put him under severe pressure".

"He's so important for us and we have played a lot without him".

City are in fifth place in the league with 43 points and are basically in the identical position they were at the same time a year ago.

City have won only half of their last 12 matches, drawing twice and losing four times, including 4-0 to Everton - Guardiola's worst ever league defeat.

This City squad also has some young players like Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, who Guardiola believes are the club's future.

Guardiola opted for a double change after 70 minutes as Aguero and Fernandinho replaced De Bruyne and Sterling.

Other Bets capital expenditures were $504 million for the quarter, primarily reflecting investment in the Fiber business. At $26.1 billion, Alphabet's gross revenue was up 22 percent over the fourth quarter of 2015, and beat expectations.

The Brazilian striker opened his Man City account in the 4-0 win against West Ham, having watched Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva score the first two goals.

The first back on August 28 at Etihad with a 3-1 loss in the Premier League and the second time just weeks ago, a 5-0 thrashing at London Stadium in the FA Cup.

On the arrivals side of the transfer ledger, West Ham did bring in midfielder Robert Snodgrass from Hull City and defender Jose Fonte from Southampton. I was looking forward to scoring my first goal.

The 31-year-old joined City in 2013 from Shakhtar.

Willy Caballero started in goal and, explaining his decision, Guardiola said: "I trust them [Bravo and Caballero] both".

WEST HAM: Randolph 5, Reid 5, Cresswell 5, Byram 5, Fonte 5, Obiang 5, Lanzini 6, Noble 6, Antonio 6, Feghouli 5, Carroll 6. I'm sure they can at least take a share of the spoils.
