Manchester City crushed West Ham FA Cup

Manchester City crushed West Ham FA Cup

Pep Guardiola hailed Manchester City's best performance in months after seeing his team destroy West Ham United 5-0 in the FA Cup third round on Friday night.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss, however, had merely said that he would not be coaching when he was 60 years old, and he took the opportunity ahead of City's FA Cup game at West Ham to explain exactly what he meant.

An own goal from Havard Nordtveit and an effort from David Silva gave the visitors a 3-0 halftime lead while Sergio Aguero and John Stones, who netted his first goal for the club, wrapped up victory in the second half. "Before the penalty, we had three or four chances and with the second and third goals it was easier for the second half", Guardiola told BBC Sport.

"The first goal, the penalty, was crucial, but we made the mistake of starting to chase them on a big pitch and that is very hard to do", Bilic said.

After a very entertaining opening half-hour of play in which both teams had bright moments, Pep Guardiola's treble contenders asserted their class for a clear win.

"Hopefully it can help our players believe that they are good enough to play that way every game".

Angelo Ogbonna fouled Pablo Zabaleta and Toure smashed the ball past Adrian to make it 10 penalties from 10 in English football. With Guardiola naming his strongest possible starting XI, Bilic inexplicably chose to rest Dimitri Payet and captain Mark Noble, arguably his two most influential players.

Reid received rich praise from fans during the match as the West Ham faithful shared their thoughts online.

It's certainly been a rough week with refs for West Ham, with another controversial decision going against them while facing a team from Manchester. "So we have time with [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain], with the club, to discuss what is the best until the end of the season".

"You can ask me whatever you want about that interview and I will answer", said Guardiola.

Raheem Sterling then forced a good tackle from Nordtveit as he raced into the Hammers box, before Stones headed over the resultant corner. The winger laid the ball across goal to Silva, who from six yards (meters) out had time to take a touch and steady himself before slotting in.
