- Pre-Match: Claudio Bravo dropped for Willy Caballero. Gabriel Jesus stays on the team, Sergio Agüero on the bench. Fernandinho not starting on his return. Vincent Kompany not playing. John Stones back. Pep Guardiola with very interesting ideas for the starting lineup.
- Very dull 10 minutes to start. Teams sharing possession, but nothing really happened.
- GOAL! Jesus to De Bruyne, beautiful finish! Pressing high works!
- GOAL! Leroy Sané absolutely DESTROYED the West Ham defense and David Silva scores the tap-in! This German kid is unstoppable, isn't he?
- GOAL!!! Gabriel Jesus scores his first City goal! Superstar in the making!
- Halftime, 3-0 City and absolutely the best performance of the season so far. Simply incredible stuff from everyone on the pitch. Truly fantastic game.
- Pure control in the second half. City just looking to protect the lead. But when you get a penalty, you take it. GOAL! Yaya Touré! 4-0!
- Game over. What an incredible victory. Really dominant, fantastic win. Wow.
So it ends a 4-0 destruction for Manchester City at London Stadium. One goal less compared to the FA Cup game three weeks ago, but the performance was just as impressive against a much better West Ham United team. Something to build upon. Up next, a resurging Swansea City team at the Etihad. That'll be tough.
