MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City consigned beleaguered West Ham to a second hammering inside four days by romping to a 6-0 victory in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal on Wednesday, with Alvaro Negredo leading the rout with a clinical hat trick. Koen Casteels Belgium Jersey . Wembley Stadium -- and a first appearance in the final since 1976 -- couldnt be any closer for free-scoring City after an embarrassingly one-sided contest that also featured two goals from Edin Dzeko and another by Yaya Toure. The result heaped further humiliation on West Ham and its under-fire manager Sam Allardyce, who saw his relegation-threatened side lose 5-0 at second-tier Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Sunday. "Its not unique to us is it?" Allardyce said. "Manchester City have done this to Tottenham and Manchester United. We knew they had to have an off night and they didnt." Sunderland beat Manchester United 2-1 on Tuesday in the first leg of the other semifinal. The second legs are in two weeks time. Allardyce had fielded a shadow side full of kids and fringe squad members against Forest to ensure his main players were fully recharged for this match. It proved to be a complete waste of time. They were steamrollered by a City team that took its goal tally at the Etihad this season to 59 in 15 games. At times, it was embarrassing and downright cruel as the hosts toyed with their opponents, with Negredo moving onto 18 for the season in his first year at City. "Playing better than the way he did today is not easy," Pellegrini said of Negredo. "He really played a complete game." City was everything United wasnt against Sunderland: sharp, full of movement and unforgiving in front of goal. The gap between the two Manchester rivals hasnt been so great in a generation. Negredo and Toure were at the heart of everything for City and they combined beautifully for the first goal in the 12th minute. Toure floated a long pass through the middle of West Hams open defence, the ball dropping over the shoulder of Negredo who buried a first-time volley into the corner. The Spain striker made it 2-0 in the 26th by sprinting onto Dzekos reverse pass and delivering a finish on the slide, and Toure inflicted more punishment just before halftime, running from halfway toward back-pedaling defender Roger Johnson and calmly stroking a shot low into the centre of the goal. Johnson was signed from third-tier Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday to ease West Hams defensive injury crisis that has deprived Allardyce of all his centre backs. He couldnt have endured a more miserable debut. The misery was far from over for West Ham, either. Negredo completed his second hat trick for City with a snapshot in the 49th after David Silvas low cross deflected into his path and strike partner Dzeko got in on the act on the hour mark, poking home a near-post finish from Gael Clichys centre. As Allardyce looked on gloomily from the technical area as the rain poured down, Dzeko added the sixth in the 89th with a vicious left-footed shot into the top corner. Allardyce was given a vote of confidence from West Hams co-chairmen after the Forest defeat but he looked a beaten man here. "However hard they tried, and they did, was not good enough to stop the quality and talents Man City have bought on the finance that is available to them," Allardyce said. City has won all 12 of its home games in domestic competition this season and scored 92 goals in 31 games in all competitions. "We have not arrived in the final but we are very near," Pellegrini said. "It is very important to continue in all the competitions playing the way we did today." Leander Dendoncker Belgium Jersey .

Dedryck Boyata Jersey .ca. Hello Kerry, After watching Nino Niederreiter clobber Alex Burrows with an open-ice hit on Wednesday, do you think he should have gotten more than the two minutes for interference. http://www.belgiumsoccerpro.com/Toby-Alderweireld-Belgium-Jersey/ . Right-hander Ricky Nolasco and the Twins agreed to terms on a free-agent contract Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Deron Williams ankle problems are over and so is the New York Knicks winning streak in Brooklyn.Williams scored a season-high 29 points and the Nets beat the Knicks 110-99 on Friday night in the first meeting this season between the city rivals.Brook Lopez added 20 points and nine rebounds, and Joe Johnson scored 18 for the Nets, who had beaten the Knicks just once on their home floor since moving from New Jersey to Brooklyn in 2012. The Knicks had won the last three meetings here, but the Nets clearly looked like the best team in the Big Apple on this night.That was largely because of Williams, who had off-season surgery on both ankles after battling problems ever since the Nets changed addresses.Last two years have been a struggle, Williams said. Theyre behind me now, looking forward to this one and we got a great win tonight.Williams had only one 30-point game last season, but mightve gotten there if this one was close and he had to play more. The former All-Star danced around the Knicks for 10-of-15 shooting and six assists.Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points but shot 5 of 20 for the Knicks, who dropped their third in a row. They came in 29th in the NBA in scoring at 89.8 points per game, but the bigger problem was a defence that allowed the Nets to shoot 51 per cent from the field and make 14 of 24 3-pointers (58 per cent).I thought that kept us in the lead. Every time they made a run wed hit a 3, Nets coach Lionel Hollins said.The shooting was spectacular.With point guards Jose Calderon (strained right calf) and Pablo Prigioni (sprained right ankle) sidelined, the Knicks started Tim Hardaway Jr. in the backcourt with Iman Shumpert. Hardaway scored 16 points and Shumpert had 11.The crowd was divided as usual, though the Nets fans were much louder as the lead grew, while filmmaker and Knicks fan Spike Lee sat glumly near the Knicks bench for much of the second half.There were high hopes for the rivalry when the Nets moved to Brooklyn, and the teams split four meetings that first season and plenty of trash talk the following summer. Dries Mertens Jersey. But it was a dud last season, when none of the four games was close.This one was more of the same, with the Nets making their first five 3-pointers in racing to a 30-20 lead after one quarter. They shot only 5 of 17 overall in the second, but still pushed their lead to 55-42 at halftime.A 9-2 burst out of the locker room made it 64-44 on a three-point play by Lopez, and the Nets were comfortably ahead from there.Weve got to put out a lot more effort on the defensive end for sure, Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire said. Were still learning the offence, but in the process of doing that weve got to make sure we have the effort defensively. Were letting the offence affect us defensively and weve got to stop that.___TIP-INSKnicks: Hardaway started one game last season as a rookie. ... The Knicks wore their home white uniforms. ... Stoudemire had 14 points off the bench.Nets: Kevin Garnett grabbed five rebounds and has 14,243 in his career, passing Walt Bellamy for ninth place on the all-time list. ... Mike D of the Beastie Boys announced the Nets starters. ... The Nets honoured former owner Lewis Katz during a first-half ceremony that included NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. Katz died in a plane crash in June.___FROM LITTLE ROCK TO THE BIG APPLEDerek Fisher joked before the game that Johnson must be good, since hes from Arkansas. Johnson said he first met Fisher in the mid-1990s, when the Knicks coach was playing on a summer league team back home with former University of Arkansas standouts such as Corliss Williamson and Scotty Thurman, and they are friends. Youve got two country boys from Little Rock, Arkansas, who are in the big city, enjoying life, so I dont wish no ill will on the man, Johnson said. I wish him the best. Thats my guy.___UP NEXTKnicks: Visit Atlanta on Saturday.Nets: Host Orlando on Sunday.
