City poured forward, Silva hit the post from Nasri's ball but they recycle it and Sliva plays in Sterling who cleverly rounds the keeper and from almost the byline passes it calmly into the net! City are going top!
92' STERLING SCORES!!! 3-1 GAME OVER!!
91' There will be FOUR minutes of added time
90' NASRI CLOSE AGAIN! Silva once again the provider as Nasri finds room between tow defenders but he;s forced wide as he tries to take the shot and it goes high and wide
89' Sterling showing glimpses of his poor form from last season! He hits the side netting from SIlva's pass! Could have composed himself a little better!

83' NASRI ALMOST TURNS HERO! He and Aguero combine and he gets around the keeper but his shot is blocked OFF THE LINE! What a headline that would have been!

82' Corner for West Ham!
79' The game has lost some of it's swagger. Both teams are flopping when it comes to the final third!

76' Forgotten man Samir Nasri comes on for Nolito
75' West Ham had a chance to put in a good cross after some great build up play but Antonio messes it up

62' Poor cross in by West Ham and then Noble's ball is too long and runs out for a goal-kick! Definitely a different game now!

44' Slaven Bilic will definitely be thinking about changes at half time. He needs to find a way to break this City momentum

38' Aguero still hasn't scored yet! That's the only unusual thing about this game!
36' Can't remember a purposeful attack from West Ham all game! They need to recoup and try and stop this kind of dominance from the home side
32' MISS FROM DE BRUYNE!! IT should have been number 3! A wonderful move from the left flank once again as De Bruyne spreads it for Nolito who plays Silva on the overlap and his cut back for the Belgian is perfect but he somehow flashes it wide!! That was superb football. The move deserved a goal!
30' BETTER FROM WEST HAM! Tore crosses it for Fletcher and his header is just wide
