  1. Goodbye

    So FA Cup third round weekend starts with a bang. Who will be joining Manchester City in the fourth round? Will there be another five-goal mauling in any of the other 31 ties? The answer to these and many more questions will be revealed over the coming days.

    Many thanks for your company. Until next time. 

  2. 'Very bad day'

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    West Ham United

    West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "The penalty was the turning point because we looked good until then. It was maybe a soft one.

    "We had a great chance to equalise but we didn't. We made mistakes after the goal and started to chase the ball. Quickly it was 3-0 and game over.

    "It's a very bad day for us. It wasn't good enough.

    "What disappointed me the most is that we started to chase them all over the pitch and then conceded two more and it was all over.

    What a big game for Slaven Bilic next week. West Ham must bounce back from a third straight defeat when they host Crystal Palace, managed by ex-Hammers boss Sam Allardyce, on 14 January in the Premier League (15:00 GMT).

  5. 'Stop making excuses'

    MH: West Ham won nothing for 35 years in the old stadium so stop making excuses for them. 

    Chris Kilbane: Great Manager, Fantastic stadium. Shame the players have forgotten what they are paid to do. 

    James Worden: Love how Man City send Caballero to do an interview just to give him something to do tonight.

  6. 'We are the good guys'

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "We were able to keep the ball more than the last games. We created more chances. Before the penalty we had three or four clear chances. After the second and third goal it was easy in the second half.

    "It's important to win away but it's not easy. I'd like to involve the fans and make them believe we are good. We are the good guys - we run a lot and fight."

  7. 'City still in title race'

    Ian Wright

    Former Arsenal striker on BBC One

    Man City have got so much quality in their side, you can't write them off in the title race. 

  8. The stats don't lie

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Some stats from our friends at Opta...

    West Ham have suffered their worst home defeat in FA Cup history, having never previously lost by a five-goal margin. Only once in FA Cup history have West Ham suffered a greater margin of defeat – 0-6 against Manchester United in January 2003.

  9. Cheeky

    Cheeky from the lowest-ranked club still in the hat.

    The Northern Premier League Premier Division side travel to Wycombe on Saturday.

  10. 'Long time coming'

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Manchester City

    Manchester City goalscorer John Stones on BBC One: "I thought we moved the ball well. We changed our system and played with a diamond. It worked really well. 

    "To get clean-sheet was good - we haven't had too many.

    On scoring his first goal for City: "It's been a long time coming. I should have scored in previous games. It's nice to get one in a special cup."

  11. 'Happy, happy, happy'

  12. 'Silva was brilliant'

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Frank Lampard

    Former England midfielder on BBC One

    You can't defend like that. The third was an easy goal in the end. David Silva was quite rightly man of the match and that goal just sums him up as a player. He was brilliant. 

  13. 'Fantastic City'

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Alan Shearer

    Ex-England captain on BBC One

    Manchester City were fantastic, West Ham could not live with them. 

    City's movement off the ball was just superb. 

    Slaven Bilic stood on the touchline for 90 minutes. He didn't shirk his responsibilities. His players did. 

  14. 'Pub team'


    Andyfalse: I can deal with losing 5-0, it happens. But the total lack of effort and heart from West Ham is shameful. Bilic out. 

    Christopher Hallfalse:Well, it was fun whilst it lasted, Slaven...

    Jason Turnbullfalse:West Ham look like a pub team. Man City have showed their class.

  15. Watch again: Stones scores for City

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    A moment to remember for John Stones. Watch as he scores his first goal for Manchester City - and completes West Ham's embarrassment.

    Meanwhile, in the Match of the Day studio the chat is all about West Ham's failure to come to terms with their new London Stadium surroundings.

  17. FULL-TIME - West Ham 0-5 Man City

    A Spiderman pitch invader has stopped play. How West Ham could have done with a super hero. Michael Oliver doesn't even bother with additional time. He brings the home team's agony to an end.

    West Ham fans are pouring out of the ground. They've had enough.

  19. Post update

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Questions will be asked of West Ham's lack of fight. City have been brilliant but this has not good enough from the hosts. Slaven Bilic's post-match interview should be interesting.

  20. Post update

    West Ham 0-5 Man City

    Replays of John Stones's header show it was clearly over the line. 

    City break again through Sergio Aguero. This is utterly ruthless. Adrian just about does enough to keep out the Argentine's attempt.
