Man City claims top spot of Premier League after 5-0 win over West Brom

That’s seven straight wins in the league for Manchester City and eleven across all competitions, after its 5-0 blowout win against West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.

City were 4-0 up before halftime, thanks to goals made by Ilkay Gundogan twice, Joao Cancelo, Riyad Mahrez,and thus another goal in the second half made by Raheem Sterling gave the Blues to secure all three points while grabbing the victory easily.

Currently, City are now one point above Manchester United — wherein they can still reclaim first place by beating Sheffield United on Wednesday.

It is City’s longest winning run for more than three years and it sent an ominous message to the team’s title rivals, despite Kevin De Bruyne out due to his hamstring injury. you also can read Arsenal pulled off a 3-1 comeback EPL win at Southampton news at here!

On the other side of the table, West Bromwich remain second from bottom and six points from safety, with recently hired manager Sam Allardyce yet to see his side score at home, having overseen an overall score line of 0-17 in those four matches.

The Baggies has now lost all of its last five top-flight home games, making it the club’s worst run at The Hawthorns in the Premier League in 17 years — while conceding 29 goals in their last 10 EPL games.

West Brom winger Robert Snodgrass just made his home debut after a move from West Ham United, said they had to quickly bounce back.

“I’m here for the fight. We did everything we possibly could and I think if you look back at this, as a team, we’ll realise that isn’t good enough.

“We’re not going to try and blame everyone else. We’re going to take it on the chin and dust ourselves down. (there’s) no hiding place in the Premier League, these top boys punish you.”
