Manchester City made the most of a midweek series of games that saw all of their rivals in the top 6 in the Premier League drop points, thrashing West Ham United 4-0 at the Olympic Stadium with Gabriel Jesus opening his account for the Citizens after star striker Sergio Aguero was left on the bench.
