Man City go top with win over West Ham

Key Stat: Manchester City have lost only one of their last ten Premier League games against West Ham at home, winning eight and drawing one.

All of the hallmarks of a Pep Guardiola side were in evidence for Manchester City on Sunday afternoon as they overcame West Ham 3-1 at the Etihad.

Defender Gael Clichy has been handed a start as Manchester City lock horns with West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday, while Nolito comes in for Jesus Navas.

City could easily have scored a third goal before Michail Antonio's header in the 57th minute gave West Ham an unexpected lifeline.

In the second half, Bilic pushed Antonio further forward and he headed in a cross by Arthur Masuaku.

David Silva carved open the visiting defense with a through-ball to Nolito, who squared a cross for Sterling to steer home with a first-time shot from a central position. De Bruyne came the closest, with the Belgian opting to shoot with his set-piece, and it only just rippled the roof of the net.

They ran Slaven Bilic's injury-hit side dizzy in the first half and at the break should have had more than the two goals provided by Sterling and Fernandinho.

Shields, 21, who grew up in Flint, Mich., also beat Fontijin back in May to win her second consecutive world championship. First gold for US boxers in Rio, first medal for the marathon since 2004 and an epic volleyball comeback.

Nolito came even closer moments later, as another unsafe set-piece from De Bruyne was cleared by Winston Reid, but it was only as far as Nolito but he can only find the side-netting.

"The reaction in the second half was better". The Argentina worldwide could face retrospective action after appearing to aim an elbow at West Ham's Winston Reid.

Guardiola could relax at last with saviour Sterling repaying the love.

Earlier, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion played out a 0-0 draw.

The point apiece saw newly-promoted Boro climb into sixth place, with West Brom moving up to tenth in the table. He's explosive and if he plays well there aren't many full backs who can stop him.

This season, with the arrivals of Gonzalo Higuain and Marko Pjaca, Zaza would have further struggled for game time at Juventus.

West Brom nearly got a lucky break in the closing stages when Daniel Ayala's shot struck Guzan before bouncing away from goal.
