Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City had a wild start of the new season. The Cityzens showed their enormous quality during the visit to West Ham United, winning the clash at London Stadium with 5-0. One of City’s biggest stars Raheem Sterling scored a hattrick, while Gabriel Jesus and Kun Aguero also put their names on the scoresheet. It was a flawless performance by the champions.
Josep Guardiola can’t use the injured Leroy Sane and Benjamin Mendy against Spurs, but he can be happy with the performance of the new signing Rodri against West Ham.

The new signing Tanguy NDombele equalised for the hosts, while Harry Kane showed his worth and won the game for Tottenham with two late goals.
