- After nine minutes the lead was multiplied, Sterling tucking home at the back post after Sané had confused Pablo Zabaleta on the right.
- It was amazingly simple, and the way Sterling betrayed Arthur Masuaku at the pivotal minute brought up issues with respect to why the unpalatably focussed wing-back had been chosen in front of the more protectively competent Aaron Cresswell.
- West Ham chose to make a concise clench hand of it and they had two possibilities in the accompanying couple of minutes.
- First Marko Arnautovic was teed up in the crate by Michail Antonio, however with the ball trailing marginally behind him the Austrian couldn’t locate the correct power and Walker slid in to square. For the second open door Antonio set himself up, however his fearsome shot was directly at Ederson.
Love watching Tottenham when they play like this. Only Manchester City have a higher ceiling of performance in an individual match when it all clicks. Sensational.

- There was no booing from the home fans as the players trooped off for the interim, and they may have seen more awful since the club moved to the London Stadium a year ago. In any case, this was as yet an execution that was both confounding and enervating.
1. No left foot
2. Scared to show for the ball when the pressure is on
3. Can’t time a tackle properly

- In Manuel Pellegrini’s first experience against the group he once prompted a class title he had picked a side that appeared to be illsuited to upsetting City’s ownership. Maybe the point was to open up on the counter, yet without the ball even that was unthinkable. To exacerbate the situation, the hosts were cheerful to play at City’s rhythm, which was strolling pace.
- Cresswell went ahead for Masuaku at half-time ,and Javier Hernández supplanted Grady Diangana to make it a 4-4-2 in the blink of an eye thereafter. By this point City could have had four, Fabianski making a sliding tackle to quit Sterling, however the progressions gave the hosts more force.
Manchester City recorded an 8th consecutive victory earlier.
Silva, Sterling and a Sane double earned the champions a comfortable 4-0 win at West Ham.

Antonio dashed on to it and weighed down on goal, yet while he could twist his shot around an onrushing Ederson, he couldn’t guide it inside the post and it bobbed out for an goal kick.

- There were a couple all the more half-chances for the hosts, Balbuena raising a better than average header over the bar, yet there was nothing moving toward a rebound. As the diversion drew nearer included time Arnautovic limped off the pitch and left West Ham to play out the last stages with just 10 men. They could not wait for two additional minutes in any case, and Sané volleyed home at the far post with the last kick of the match.

Subsequently goalmouth activity was hard to come by.

- Manchester United’s reaction was to mold their slickest move yet. Mata pinged the ball to Lingard and when he handed this over to Pogba the shot kept Wayne Hennessey genuine in the Palace goal.
- Zaha was then near benefitting from an errant Lingard pass. The 26-year-old pulled the trigger instantly before David de Gea – and Lingard – watched the ball run wide with alleviation.

- Mourinho had seen enough. Off came Mata and Lingard and on came Fellaini and Rashford.
- However it was United who mixed now as De Gea repulsed a 20-yard Kouyaté shot and after that Van Aanholt’s development.

- So did Matic – a few times – when endeavoring to capture Townsend. Rather the forward burst through and hit a right-foot exertion wide of De Gea’s correct post to home alleviation.
- From here the example proceeded of low quality. Joined may have appreciated far more noteworthy bal possession yet what does this make a difference if nothing is made of it? They finished in and around Palace’s goal and Lukaku had one header spared well by Hennessey. It all, however, feels somewhat edgy for Mourinho and his group.
