WATCH: Raheem Sterling finishes off West Ham with smart goal


Manchester City suffered a lot in the second half against West Ham United after conceding a goal that turned an easy game into a tough one. After a sensational first half, the Citizens needed a goal in the end to finish off the Hammers and guarantee the three points.

Raheem Sterling did just that:

This is a beautifull worked goal, which shows how Pep Guardiola wants his team to play. Notice how the goal begins all the way back in City's box, with possession being used patiently to find spaces inside the opponent's half. David Silva hit the post, but the ball came back to Nasri, was touched again by Silva, and finally came into the feet of Sterling, who dribbled past the keeper and found a little gap between the defender's legs and the post to slot the ball and ice the game.

Well done, Raheem. City victory!
