FIVE-STAR SHOW­ING FROM PEP’S PLAY­ERS

WEST HAM 0 MAN CITY 5

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

PEP GUARDI­OLA marked his first FA Cup clash in style, as his Manch­ester City side thumped West Ham at the Lon­don Sta­dium.

To be hon­est the re­sult was never in doubt as the vis­i­tors led 3-0 at half-time.

Yaya Toure opened the scor­ing from the penalty spot af­ter Pablo Za­baleta had been felled in the box by An­gelo Og­bonna, be­fore Havard Nordtveit bun­dled Bacary Sagna’s cross into his own net and David Silva tapped home from close range.

Five min­utes af­ter the restart Ser­gio Aguero di­verted Toure’s shot into the back of the West Ham net.

And with six min­utes re­main­ing de­fender John Stones headed in his first Manch­ester City goal to com­plete the scor­ing, mean­ing City were the first team to con­firm their place in the fourth round.
