Man City thrash West Ham to reach round four

Sergio Aguero

Pep Guardiola’s first taste of the FA Cup ended triumphantly as Manchester City thrashed Premier League rivals West Ham in the third round.

City led 3-0 at the break, Yaya Toure starting the rout by firing a debatable penalty into the bottom left corner.

Havard Nordtveit bundled Bacary Sagna’s teasing cross into his own net, seconds before David Silva’s composed tap-in.

Moments after the restart, Sergio Aguero cheekily diverted in Toure’s shot to become the third highest goalscorer in City’s history.

And John Stones headed in his first Blues goal as the visitors comfortably saw the game out in a rapidly emptying London Stadium.

Following Friday’s opening third-round tie, City are the first team in the pot for the fourth-round draw which takes place on Monday at 1900 GMT.
