LEROY SANE paid tribute to ‘unbelievable’ Raheem Sterling after the duo masterminded Manchester City’s 4-0 win at West Ham.
England attacker Sterling set up the opening goal for David Silva and tapped in the second from Sane’s cross.
Sane then got off the mark after being set up by Sterling as City raced into a 3-0 lead with just over half-an-hour on the clock.
It was a ruthless display from the champions and Sane (pictured with Sterling) said: ‘Before my first goal we did a lot of passes. Raheem had an eye for me in the middle.
‘Raheem is unbelievable. A great guy, how he played this season he has improved a lot. It’s really exciting to play with him.
‘He has the hunger to score more goals. I’m really happy for him. Everyone can see we are really motivated to win the games.’
West Ham improved in the second half but City wrapped up the scoring with Sane’s volley in injury-time.
West Ham defender and former City star Pablo Zabaleta admitted: ‘The difference was the quality in the final third. That’s the key to winning games, and they did it.
‘I thought they had five chances, they scored four goals and that was the difference because I don’t think our performance was bad.
‘I thought we played a good game and we had our chances, but were not clinical enough to score goals.
‘We did everything to try and get something out of the game but it wasn’t possible.’
