Man City's tiki taka sinks West Ham 5-0 (FA Cup)

Man City's tiki taka sinks West Ham 5-0 (FA Cup)

Guardiola's Manchester City meets West Ham at the London Stadium in the third round of the FA Cup after struggling to find consistency in the Premier League over the festive period. City and their head coach, Pep Guardiola have been under pressure in recent times, following a 1-0 loss to Liverpool and then his infamous interview following a slim 2-1 win over Burnley.

"In the last month or so, our passing was up and down and our game was unpredictable, but today we controlled it the way we played earlier this season".

"Before the penalty we had three or four clear chances and after the second and third goal it was easy for the second half", he insisted.

Sergio Aguero put the result beyond any doubt when he scored five minutes into the second half before John Stones headed in a fifth for Pep Guardiola's City.

"It is important to win away, it is not easy".

"Hopefully it can help us to make our players believers that they are good enough to play every game. As much as possible we have to have the ball, we have to play".

It was Guardiola's first taste of the FA Cup and it was fair to say that he felt its romance.

City were irresistible as they tore into West Ham, taking the lead from the penalty spot through Yaya Toure, who has seemingly been reinstalled as a pivotal presence in the City squad having been frozen out at the start of the campaign.

West Ham's time at the London Stadium is going, er, well...

For that ruling it was Mike Dean the fans were furious with - this time the much younger Michael Oliver.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss was reluctant to analyse the contest or the red card shown to Fernandinho when speaking to Sky Sports' Rob Palmer.

In the 41st minute the Hammers' tale of woe continued when Nordtveit turned Bacary Sagna's cross into his own goal, knowing that if he didn't get a touch Raheem Sterling would.

Lampard came through the youth academy at West Ham in the mid-90's before graduating to the first team under manager and uncle, Harry Redknapp, before joining Chelsea in 2001.

The England worldwide laid the ball across goal to Silva, who from six yards out had time to take a touch, steady himself, and probably do a crossword had he felt like it, before slotting in the third.
