Manchester City has joined rivals Manchester United and Chelsea at the top of the English Premiership as it collected maximum points against West Ham United in the Sunday fixture.

It now sits in first place on goal difference.
Pep Guardiola’s men were two up at half time through goals from Raheem Sterling and Fernandihno but Sterling added one more to the tally in stoppage time at the end of the game.
The Hammers managed to pull one back shortly after half time with a headed goal from Michail Antonio.
Chelsea also ran in easy winners against Burnley Saturday with three goals from Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses.
Manchester United left it very late in their game against Hull, scoring in stoppage time, but a 1-0 win against the Tigers means that the Red Devils also have three points from three games.
Victor Moses celebrates scoring Chelsea's third goal against Burnley.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have new managers this season and early results already show that the EPL could turn into a clash of coaching giants, pitching Antonio Conte at Chelsea with the club’s former manager Jose Mourinho who is now at Man United.
United’s neighbors and biggest rivals, Manchester City, acquired former Bayern and Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at the start of the season and three wins from three reminds the Premiership heavyweights that he looks like bringing his impressive record to the league.
Tottenham and Liverpool have both made slow starts to the season and neither side could prevail, playing out a 1-1 draw.
The game may also have been a concern for the new England coach Sam Allardyce who was due to name his first squad Sunday. Spurs striker Harry Kane who enjoyed a magnificent season last year looked lackluster in the Euro competition in the summer during England’s woeful display and again failed to impress against Liverpool. He was substituted towards the end of the match.
Last season’s surprise champions Leicester City secured the first win of the new campaign with a 2-1 victory over Swansea and the first goal for Jamie Vardy. The striker scored 24 goals for the Foxes last season and was only pipped to the top scorer crown by England team mate Harry Kane.
Elsewhere in the league, Everton has started well and notched up a 1-0 home win over Stoke. Arsenal bounced back from two poor results to beat Watford 3-1 away from home and there were 1-1 draws in the games between Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, and Southampton versus Sunderland.
West Bromwich Albion played out a dull 0-0 draw against Premiership new boys Middlesbrough Sunday though both teams sit comfortably mid-table after just three games.
