Impressive Man City thrash West Brom 3-0 in EPL

first_imgWEST BROMWICH, England (AP):Yaya TourÈ scored twice in the first half yesterday as Manchester City began their English Premier League campaign with an impressive 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.TourÈ scored with two shots from just outside the area in the ninth and 24th minutes as the visitors dominated the match from the start. Captain Vincent Kompany headed in the third in the 59th in a fluid team performance that signalled that Manuel Pellegrini’s side will again be serious contenders for the league title after relinquishing the crown to Chelsea last season.New signing Raheem Sterling also looked lively for City, but fluffed his best chance to score with a weak effort when through on goal in the 41st minute.The margin of victory puts City atop the standings after the opening weekend. And with Chelsea held to a draw, Arsenal losing and Manchester United and Liverpool both earning unconvincing 1-0 wins, this was by far the best performance of the first round. Even more worrying for their rivals is that City did it largely without star striker Sergio Ag¸ero, who only came on as a substitute for the last 25 minutes. He’s likely to be back in the starting line-up for a tougher test next weekend, when City hosts Chelsea in an eagerly anticipated matchup.”We came here today knowing we had a point to prove,” Kompany said. “Me more than anyone else probably. … I just want to get back to my best level.”last_img read more
