Man City v West Ham - as it happened
FT: Man City 2-0 W Ham!!! Finished at the Etihad and it was an extremely comfortable win for the home side. Rodrigo scored with a header in the 30th minute and then De Bruyne added to City's tally in the 62nd minute after good play with B Silva. D Silva went off injured, but it didn't seem too serious. W Ham did not have a shot on target in the whole match and it's obvious to see why they are in the bottom 3. Thanks for joining us tonight and we hope to see you soon!
