Manchester City secured a comfortable 4-1 win over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday to move within two of the English Premier League’s single-season points records.

PFA Young Player of the Year Leroy Sane got Manchester City — already confirmed as English Premier League (EPL) champions two weeks ago — up and running in the 13th minute.

This was after his strike from the edge of the penalty area was deflected in by Patrice Evra.

Former Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta then put through his own net 14 minutes later to score City’s 100th Premier League goal of the season.

However, Aaron Cresswell curled home a 42nd-minute free kick to get West Ham back in it.

Second half goals from Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho made sure of the win, leaving West Ham just three points above the relegation zone in 15th.

Manchester City’s tally of 102 goals for the season is one of Chelsea’s English Premier League record set in 2009-2010.

They have 93 points, two short of the English Premier League record which was also set by Chelsea in 2004-2005. (Reuters/NAN)
