Had very little to do as the visitors struggled to get out of their own half, never mind register attempts on goal. Held Diame effort in first half on otherwise quiet night.
Barely involved as first Maiga and then Carlton Cole did little to trouble the returning center back. Will have had fewer more comfortable evenings.
Passing from the back was a delight, with ball into Negredo helping create second goal. Had little defending to do but was his usual solid self.
Caused no problems by Joe Cole on the left and could maraud at will. Crosses not always at their best but provided a decent outlet.
Got the better of the disappointing Downing and proved a more than useful option going forward, providing the cross for Dzeko's strike. One of the more underrated cogs in this City machine.
Caused problems throughout and was unfortunate to see effort saved in the first half. A continuation of fine displays so far this season.
Pinpoint pass over the top created Negredo's opener before he picked himself up from an ankle knock to run 50 yards for the third. Deservedly rested for final 25 minutes.
Like Nasri, his quick feet had West Ham defense mesmerized. Played his part in a couple of goals as he relished freedom he has been given under Pellegrini.
Kept the ball effectively in the middle of the park and posed a threat from set pieces, heading wide early on. A decent deputy for Fernandinho.
Fine pass round the corner sent Negredo free for second goal and deservedly got himself on the scoresheet with fine near post finish in the second period. Added a second late with a powerful finish.
Three superb finishes brought him a hat trick inside 50 minutes as he ran Johnson and particularly McCartney ragged. Tackle on edge of his own box at 3-0 summed up all-round display.
Could do little with any of the goals and made two or three excellent saves to keep the score from becoming more embarrassing for the Hammers.
Couldn't deal with Zabaleta's overlaps in the first half and almost gifted the Argentine a goal in the opening stages. Moved to center back in the second half but continued to struggle.
Arguably the best of West Ham's defenders, though that is nothing to write home about. Quick feet of Silva and Nasri left him for dead on occasion.
Few will have struggled more on their debut as he allowed Toure all the time in the world for the third goal. Seemed to be struggling with fitness by the end.
Got caught under the ball for the first, was outpaced by Negredo for the second and was too eager to clear for the third. Improved slightly when moved to left back after the break.
For a local lad to look so uninterested sums up the issues West Ham has. Got nowhere near enough to Silva for Negredo's third and looked lost throughout.
Crossing from both open play and set pieces left much to be desired as he was totally dominated by Clichy. Seems to be continuously going backward.
The best of West Ham's side, especially in the first half as he got in its only shot on target. Faded as the game wore on in the second half.
Tried to get his team going but lack of any confidence meant he became increasingly frustrated. Struggled to make much of an impact.
Failed to shield his defense effectively as the game largely passed him by. Not good enough with the ball to perform in a central role.
Did his best to try and work Kompany and Lescott hard but was left pretty isolated by poor midfield. Replaced at halftime by Carlton Cole.
Could make little impact on the game as he replaced Negredo for the closing stages.
Looked solid in slightly unfamiliar defensive midfield role, making a couple of key challenges.
Showed the odd glimpse of the pace he possesses but struggled to keep hold of the ball when he was given possession in the final third.
Didn't start well as he was berated by Allardyce for not being ready to come on, and he had little impact on the game once he finally finished tying his boots.
Made little impact on the game after replacing visibly unhappy Noble in second period.
Lost the ball through poor control on too many occasions as he was marked out of the game by Kompany.
