Highlights: Manchester City 1-5 West Ham U23
West Ham United's U23s began the new year in style as they thrashed Manchester City 5-1 away from home on Saturday.
The Hammers got off to the perfect start when Joe Powell converted from the penalty spot inside three minutes, before City equalised on the quarter of an hour mark.
Dan Kemp got the visitors back in front before Amadou Diallo added a third just before the break.
As City were reduced to ten men five minutes into the second period, Liam Manning and Steve Potts' side ran away with the fixture thanks to another Kemp strike and sub Sean Adarkwa's late fifth.
