Pep Guardiola will 'sleep well' after replacing Bravo with Caballero

Guardiola: Premier League title is Chelsea's to lose

Once the actual contest had begun, though, Manchester City made sure that West Ham's Twitter account didn't have any other reason to laugh at them, as they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Gabriel de Jesus, and Yaya Toure.

He played it across to Raheem Sterling, he played it across the face of goal where Jesus was waiting to tap home his first goal in a City shirt.

Manchester City will be hoping they can get back to winning ways after gaining only one point in their last two league games but they may have to do so without top scorer Sergio Aguero. Gabriel Jesus is a fighter with instinct for the goal.

"We knew after the cup game it was going to be very important to start aggressively", De Bruyne added.

In the London Stadium stands, a few rows down from former City manager Roberto Mancini, who once brought the best from Aguero, was Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Manchester United had the flawless opportunity to close the gap on Liverpool and Arsenal on Wednesday night after both teams dropped points on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola insists Fernandinho is not an aggressive player as the Manchester City midfielder prepares to return from his third ban of the season. "These three guys are future of the club because their average age is 20".

"These three guys are the future for this club", Guardiola said.

"At Crystal Palace he learned what it means playing in away games in the Premier League and played quite good", Guardiola said of his new signing.

But Bilic's side were never in the game and fell behind in just the 17th minute when Kevin De Bruyne combined well with Gabriel Jesus and slotted past Darren Randolph.

"Perhaps in the first year he is feeling it is hard, but when the players adapt to his philosophy, to the way he thinks, they will progress".

Stoke's Peter Crouch dusted off his robot dance after opening the scoring against Everton with his 100th Premier League goal after seven minutes, finishing on the stretch after Marko Arnautovic had broken the offside trap.

Mourinho made nine changes to the United team that had crushed Wigan Athletic 4-0 in the FA Cup on Sunday, but Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic repelled everything the hosts threw his way.
