MAN CITY 3, WEST BROM 0
Manchester City hardly had to break sweat as they stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to 15 points.
West Brom, who won 3-2 at Liverpool in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday, offered little threat as City made it 100 goals for the season in all competitions.
Goals from Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero completed a stroll as City recorded a 13th straight win against the Baggies since 2012.
