Man City Defeat West Ham In Pre-Season Opener

Manchester City came from behind to thrash West Ham 4-1 in a pre-season friendly in China and book their place in the Asia Cup final.

A Mark Noble penalty had given West Ham the lead but David Silva equalised for the Premier League champions with a well-worked move.

Lukas Nmecha put City in front with a penalty, before second-half substitute Raheem Sterling scored twice.

The Hammers, who will play Newcastle in Steve Bruce’s first game as Magpies manager in the third/fourth play-off on Saturday, went close to finding a late consolation goal through Andriy Yarmolenko, but the striker could not convert from close range after Claudio Bravo parried Javier Hernandez’s direct free-kick.

Pep Guardiola’s side will face Wolves in the final on Saturday.
