Joe Powell's early penalty sets Hammers on way to 5-1 victory at Manchester City

West Ham United handed 10-man Manchester City a shock 5-1 home defeat to open the year in style.

They got an early lead through a penalty awarded after just 45 seconds that Joe Powell (pictured) converted.

Benjamin Garre quickly levelled for City but West Ham hit back before half-time through Daniel Kemp and 15-year-old winger Amadou Diallo.

Things got worse for City soon after the break when Nathanael Ogbeta got a second yellow card and West Ham made them pay with further goals by Kemp and Sean Adarkwa.

West Ham stay 10th in Division 1 on 15 points, while City are fifth on 20.
