If you were looking for a contest that reflected well on the competitiveness of the Premier League, this was not it, as Manchester City comprehensively defeated a timid West Ham in less than 40 minutes.
Goals from David Silva, Raheem Sterling and two from Leroy Sané, the second coming in second-half injury time, came easily for the visitors. The hosts, who lest we forget spent £100m in the summer to challenge in the top half of the table and recruited a former City boss to help them do it, looked visibly intimidated, and only came to life when the rubber was well and truly dead.
