WATCH: Sterling scores great goal to put Man City ahead against West Ham

Fantastic team goal!

Manchester City had a very bright start against West Ham on Sunday at Etihad Stadium in their Premier League match. The Citizens had plenty of possession, pressed the ball high up the pitch and created a lot of chances early in the first half.

After so much pressure, the goal was bound to happen soon, and it did after just seven minutes, with Raheem Sterling finshing off a fantastic team move:

David Silva is the star of the play here, beating Enner Valencia on the run and then finding Nolito with a beautiful through ball. Nolito isn't selfish and puts it on a plate for Sterling to score his first goal in the Pep Guardiola Era.

This is a beaufitul goal, and a great start to a tough match against the Hammers.
