West Ham Utd 0-5 Manchester City


Filed: Friday, 6th January 2017

West Ham's season is all but over in the first week of January, after Slaven Bilic's side were humiliated in front of their own fans against a rampant Man City.

And the Olympic Stadium continues to prove a millstone around the necks of United's players as they capitulated yet again in this vast, wide open arena that completely nullifies any advantage that could be gained from a vociferous, and closer, home crowd.




Pep Guardiola, speaking after the game stressed how the bowl-shaped design of the stadium helped his team, who romped home with ease after Pablo Zabaleta deceived the referee to win a first half penalty after 33 minutes.

Fom the moment Yaya Toure converted the resulting spot kick there was only one team in it. A Nordtveit own goal and David Silva's close-range effort two minutes ahead of the break meant the game was virtually over by half time.




Any lingering doubts were put to bed within five minutes of the restart as Aguero made it 4-0, before Mark Noble failed to prevent John Stones' 84th minute header from crossing the line as City added a fifth.

We'll have a full match report for you soon...
