West Ham United remain in trouble as Manchester City reach 100 Premier League goals.
West Ham remain in a precarious position above the relegation zone after a home defeat by Manchester City, who reached 100 Premier League goals for the season.
The champions took the lead when Leroy Sane‚Äôs shot deflected off the head of Patrice Evra and wrong-footed Hammers goalkeeper Adrian.
A series of West Ham defensive mishaps culminated in a Pablo Zabaleta own goal which gave City a two-goal advantage and saw them reach the landmark century. Pablo Zabaleta was the first player to score an own goal against a side he has previously played for in the Premier League since Jonjo Shelvey against Liverpool in December 2014.
Aaron Cresswell gave the Hammers a foothold in the game shortly before the break when he curled home a free-kick inside Ederson‚Äôs near post.
However, inspired by a brilliant performance from Raheem Sterling, City reasserted their control of the contest early in the second half.
Having earlier teed up Sane, Sterling claimed a hat-trick of assists after the break when he set up Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho to finish clinically from inside the box.
West Ham are three points clear of 18th-placed Southampton, who occupy the final relegation place.
