West Ham v Manchester City – story of the match

Manchester City racked up a century of Premier League goals and ensured West Ham remained in the relegation fight with a 4-1 win at the London Stadium.

Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho were on target, while Pablo Zabaleta scored an own-goal against his old club, as Pep Guardiola’s title winners cruised to a record-equalling 30th victory of the campaign.

They now require two goals and three points from their three remaining games to break another two Premier League records.

Jesus added the third after a wonderful exchange of passes with Sterling. The Brazilian collected the ball from his team-mate before coolly slotting home past Adrian to make sure the Premier League champions were heading home with three well-deserved points.
