Three talking points from Manchester City’s win over West Ham

Manchester City’s victory over West Ham always looked likely after James Collins beautifully sliced his attempted clearance into his own net.

Here are THREE talking points from today’s game at the Etihad:

Pellegrini lives to fight another day

Had Manchester City lost today’s game against the struggling Hammers than the current Premier League Champions may have been forced to pull the trigger. As it is, the Chilean may now hold onto his job until the end of the season, when Jurgen Klopp – and potentially Pep Guardiola – will be available.

West Ham playing in flip-flops

The Hammers may have well today for all the difference it would have made. The West Ham players look like they’re on their holiers already and with Sam Allardyce unlikely to be the West Ham manager next season, they apparently have little motivation to perform.

Aguero hard done by

Sergio Aguero scored Man City’s second to take him to the hallowed 20-goal-a-season mark in the league for only the second time in his Manchester City career. This form was not deemed good enough to earn him a nod for the PFA Player of the Year despite now out-scoring both Harry Kane and Diego Costa. No one could blame the Argentine for feeling like he’s been short changed.
