Nigerian striker scores as Guardiola’s Man City thrash West Ham 4-1

Manchester City picked up from where they left off last season as they defeated West Ham in the Premier League Asia Trophy semi-final. Raheem Sterling scored a brace whilst David Silva and Lukas Nmecha also notched to help Pep Guardiola’s side come from behind after Mark Noble had put the Hammers in front.


Mark Noble with a finely taken penalty, placed the ball to left corner beyond the reach of Bravo in the China to put Manuel Pellegrini’s men ahead after Angelino handled the ball after going to ground in his own area while trying to keep up with the trickery of Anderson.
Few minutes after 30, Bernabe who showed brilliant vision, picked up fellow Spaniard David Silva in the box. Silva did well in controlling the ball inside the six-yard area before crashing an effort past Jimenez.
The City forward put the Premier League champions ahead from the penalty spot early onForward Lukas Nmecha, who was born in Hamburg to German and Nigerian parents, but raised in England netted a spot-kick for the Premier League champs to turn game round before half-time.
Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane and Kevin de Bruyne then came on for City in place of Nmecha, Poveda, Bernabe and David Silva.
Sterling then scored a brace past Mark Noble to help the Cityzens to a West Ham thrashing. The English champions will face Wolves in the Asia Trophy final on Saturday.
