Article excerpt

CITY rated EDERSON Faced two tricky moments in the first half, but stood firm to deny Antonio and then kept out Arnautovic 7 KYLE WALKER Very sloppy at times in the first half, losing possession and passing absent-mindedly, improved in the second half 6 NICOLAS OTAMENDI His first start for a month, and he was able to ease himself back in as Laporte's 'junior' partner - no fuss 7 AYMERIC LAPORTE Just gets better and better - even his interceptions have an air of quality about them. Commanding 8 FABIAN DELPH Didn't let the unknown quantity of Diangana unsettle him, played a crucial role in the win 7 FERNANDINHO Strolled through the game like an emperor inspecting lesser mortals, winning the ball cleanly 8 ILKAY GUNDOGAN Was an important cog in the City machine that crushed the life out of West Ham in the first half 7 DAVID SILVA Made it four goals in the last four games with another Aguero-like movement and finish 8 RAHEEM STERLING A goal and two assists made for a perfect first half, but his mind perhaps strayed towards Tuesday, but a great day's work 9 SERGIO AGUERO Not his day in front of goal, but there was no faulting his effort and link-up play, great movement and presence 7 Leroy Sane Skinned Zabaleta to set up the second goal and then a balletic turn sent everyone the wrong way as he scored the third 8 SUBSTITUTES PHIL FODEN: Came on as City wound down - 6 RIYAD MAHREZ: Steady - 6 GABRIEL JESUS: Got an assist - 7 NOT USED: Muric, Kompany, Zinchenko, Stones HAVE YOUR SAY
