VIDEO: West Ham United 1 – 4 Manchester City [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18

West Ham United 1 – 4 Manchester City [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18 – Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho were all on target as Premier League champions Manchester City swaggered to a 4-1 win at West Ham.

The Manchester City Premier League title party steamed into the London Stadium to reel off a celebratory 4-1 win against an over-matched West Ham.
PFA Young Player of the Year Leroy Sane’s 13th minute opener took a decisive deflection off Patrice Evra, whose belated home debut for David Moyes’ side was generally a torrid experience, and an unfortunate own goal for former City favourite Pablo Zabaleta brought up 100 league goals this season for Pep Guardiola’s men.
A touch of complacency crept into City’s work before half-time as Aaron Cresswell’s fine free-kick punished an error-strewn passage of play but they were rampant once more after the break.
Gabriel Jesus set in motion the move for his 12th top-flight goal of the campaign before fellow Brazil international Fernandinho got in on the act on his return from suspension.
City are now one shy of Chelsea’s Premier League best haul of 103 goals having matched their mark of 30 victories from the 2009-10 season, while tumbling records could not be further from the minds of West Ham, who sit precariously three points above the relegation zone with as many games to play.
West Ham had been pegged into their own half for considerable periods by the time Sane’s speculative drive spun off Evra’s head to leave goalkeeper Adrian with no chance.
Raheem Sterling ended the game with a trio of assists but snatched at a chance created by Ilkay Gundogan and Sane in the 20th minute, although the second arrived when the winger rounded Adrian and confusion followed.
As West Ham defenders scampered back into the box Kevin De Bruyne arrowed in a low ball that Declan Rice diverted towards his own net, with the final touch coming off Zabaleta.
