Manchester City go top, after they thrashed West Brom 0-5 to topple their city rivals, Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table.
Manchester City who have struggled since the beginning of the season, are clearly not looking back after finding their form. They exposed Sam Allardyce’s West Brom team with a brilliant attacking display at the Tuesday night game.
For the second week running, City were the beneficiaries of a contentious offside call but there can be no doubt that they would have routed the hosts regardless.
Ilkay Gundogan continued his inspired run in front of goal with two excellent strikes, Joao Cancelo scored while an offside flag was raised and several players seemed to stop, and Riyad Mahrez powered in a fourth before the break.
Raheem Sterling got in on the act in the second half as City ended a day on top of the table for the first time this season.
Defeat left 19th-placed West Brom six points adrift of safety going into a massive game against Fulham on Saturday.
City were without Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
