West Ham United 0-3 (0-9 agg) Manchester City
Capital One Cup semi-final second leg

West Ham United were comfortably beaten by Manchester City for the second time in as many weeks as their Capital One Cup run was brought to an end at the semi-final stage on Tuesday night.

Already trailing 6-0 from the Eithad Stadium first leg, City's power up front told once again as Alvaro Negredo notched a brace to sandwich Sergio Aguero's effort.

The Hammers did offer more of an attacking threat than in Manchester City, but were still unable to find a goal of their own as City claimed a final aggregate score of 9-0.

The second leg began just as the first ended, with City both on the front foot and the scoresheet.

Just three minutes were on the clock when Marcos Lopes crossed from the left and Negredo snuck in between James Tomkins and Razvan Rat to plant a header beyond Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Now seven goals behind, the Hammers looked to rouse themselves with a response and Mo Diame smashed a right-footed effort over the angle of post and bar with eleven minutes on the clock.

Diame turned provider four minutes later when he sent over a cross from his right flank, and Andy Carroll ran across Joleon Lescott to win the header, but the ball flew over the top.

At the other end, Jaaskelainen had to get down sharply to his right to touch Aguero's long-range daisy-cutter around the post, but he could do little to prevent the Argentine from doubling the advantage with his next chance on 24 minutes.

Youngster Lopes played a big part in the goal, making a forceful run from midfield to take Tomkins and Roger Johnson out of the equation, leaving Aguero to take over, see off the combined attention of Rat and Matt Taylor, and clip over Jaaskelainen's dive.

Carroll was withdrawn at the break after giving the first 45-minute run-out since his return from injury, as Carlton Cole took over in attack,

Stewart Downing also came off the bench shortly afterwards, and he was involved on 51 minutes, sliding a ball through to Cole, who forced a save from Costel Pantilimon with his effort from a tight angle.

However, City were able to add to their lead further just before the hour when Negredo notched his fifth goal of the tie, surging through a gap between Johnson and Taylor to evade the former's slide and dink home.

Ravel Morrison almost picked a route through the City defence to pull one back for the hosts, but Lescott threw himself in front of his shot to block.

Carlton Cole also headed wide from a Matt Taylor corner, but there were also chances at the other end as Navas fired wide at the near post after being fed in down the right.

An already miserable evening worsened for the Hammers in the final minute when Diame departed the action on a stretcher, while City could not force their tenth goal of a disappointingly one-sided tie.
