City Cruise Into Final

Another brace from Alvaro Negredo saw Manchester City to a 3-0 win over West Ham United in their second leg Capital Cup semifinal at Upton Park on Tuesday night.

After the first leg ended 6-0 in favour of the Sky Blues a fortnight ago the result was never beyond doubt, but City impressed yet again with the aggregate score finishing 9-0 over the two legs.

The opening 45 minutes was an entertaining half as both teams pushed forward in attack.

City, though, were the more threatening in front of goal and opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute after Negredo headed home a left-wing cross from Marcos Lopes, 1-0.

Two minutes later and West Ham thought they had the equaliser on the night as Kevin Nolan put the ball into the back of the net, but he was ruled off-sides.

In the 11th minute West Ham went close again as Andy Carroll nodded the ball down for Diame inside the box, but he fired narrowly wide.

City, though, despite leaving a couple of openings at the back, continued to push forward in attack and found their second goal in the 24th minute.

Lopes played Sergio Aguero through on goal and the City striker made no mistake with a clinical finish, dinking the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper, 2-0.

City continued to control the half, but they could not add to their two goal tally before the break.

The second half continued in the same vein and Negredo found his second of the night on the hour mark after being put through on goal and producing an expert finish to make it 3-0.

West Ham tried to find some consolation, but they were unable to breach a solid City defence as the game ended 3-0 in favour of City and 9-0 on aggregate over the two legs.
