  • David Moyes says despite playing an incredible Manchester City side West Ham were not at their best following their 4-1 defeat

Champions Manchester City equalled the record of number of wins in a Premier League season with a 4-1 victory at West Ham United on Sunday and they are closing in on more milestones.

Former City defender Pablo Zabaleta put through his own net 14 minutes later to score City's 100th Premier League goal of the season before Aaron Cresswell curled home a 42nd-minute free kick to get West Ham back in it. I hope we'd have done much better but I have to say Manchester City have done this to better teams than us this season.

As the rift between the top six and the rest of the league appears to grow larger by the minute, we take a look at five teams who have the potential of closing the gap to the Premier League's big boys.

"It's the same question with Chelsea four years ago, when they were not good the next season".

According to West Ham news outlet Claret & Hugh, Carroll was reportedly frustrated after being forced to watch his side's humiliating defeat from the sidelines having not been used at all by Moyes.

"Football is not a finished business, we can be more clinical", he added.

In contrast, West Ham face an anxious finale to a troubled season as they fight to avoid the drop in their last three games. They have scored 102 league goals in 35 games, making them the fastest English top-flight side to reach the century mark since Everton in 1931-32.

It's hard to see Manchester City as anything other than dominant title-winners, but at this stage last season, they were fourth, just three points ahead of Arsenal.

The West Ham fans' joy was short-lived, however, as City upped the ante after the break. Ederson was lucky to get away with dwelling on the ball as the City keeper lost possession to Marko Arnautovic, who slotted home only for the striker's effort to be ruled out for a foul.

Gabriel Jesus set in motion the move for his 12th top-flight goal of the campaign before fellow Brazil global Fernandinho got in on the act on his return from suspension.
