"Manchester City" humiliated "West Ham" in the FA Cup

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 two, for different reasons, we were not able to do that". City had more possession and wasted the chance to go ahead as early as the sixth minute through Pablo Zabaleta.

"After you have three or four wins on the trot then the opponent may be pressing you but you are not scared", Bilic said. Less than 120 seconds later, City had secured a third, when poor communication from Ogbonna, Winston Reid and Aaron Cresswell sent Sterling, Sergio Aguero and David Silva through 3-on-1 on Nordtveit.

After a very entertaining opening half-hour of play in which both teams had bright moments, Pep Guardiola's treble contenders asserted their class for a clear win.

"I want to help the club to believe they are good, I want the fans to feel they are good".

"All the season they have run a lot and will fight a lot and sometimes they have played good".

Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure opened the scoring from the spot in the 33rd minute before Raheem Sterling forced Nordtveit to turn in into his own net in the 41st.

It allegedly only made the move to hire Pompliano when it realized that a lack of key performance indicators could impact its IPO. The redacted portions include one 7½-page section that is entirely blacked out and a 4-page appendix that is blank.

After a hard few weeks, this result and the manner of it was welcome relief for Guardiola, who will now hope to take this form into the Premier League, where his City side are currently in fourth, seven points off leaders Chelsea. We are not strong and fast like the other teams but we try to play with the ball as much as possible. We are the good guys.

There were flashes of his former Barcelona side in some of City's attacking play and the ease with which they dismantled a poor West Ham, who looked off the pace from the start and were thoroughly outclassed throughout a nightmare 90 minutes.

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.

Aguero scores - Sterling pulls the ball back for Toure, who angles a shot towards goal that Aguero flicks over Adrian.

"This was our third game in six days", Bilic said, when explaining that decision.
