Game Report

Highlights

Manchester City started their season in typically devastating fashion and fired an early warning shot to their rivals. Raheem Sterling bagged an opening day hat-trick as West Ham crumbled in the second-half with VAR involved.

Detail

The Hammers looked up for the battle in the early stages as the fans were in full voice at the London stadium. They hustled City without the ball and tried to build a few attacks of their own.

City slowly started to turn the screw and struck the first blow on 25 minutes. Gabriel Jesus turning in a Kyle Walker cross.

Champions City started to insert their dominance as soon as the second-half started and were rewarded when Sterling slid the ball through Fabianski's legs after a lovely run and pass from De Bruyne.

Jesus thought he'd added his second moments later but VAR ruled it out as Sterling was deemed to be fractionally offside in the build up. This lifted the Hammers briefly and they forced a double save from Ederson.

The Hammers began to tire as City ruthlessly put them to the sword scoring 3 more times in the final 15 minutes. Sterling adding two more to complete his hat-trick either side of an Aguero penalty which had to be retaken after VAR had spotted an encroachment.

Summary

Manchester City turned on the style in the second-half with devastating counter attacking football and showed why they will be difficult to stop in their pursuit of 3 league titles in a row. West Ham battled well in the first-half but manager Pellegrini will be alarmed at how easily they fell apart in the second as fitness levels dropped.
