LONDON (AP)

Sergio Aguero scored twice and set up another goal as Manchester City moved to fourth place in the English Premier League with a 3-1 win at West Ham on Saturday.

City dominated from the off and opened up the Hammers' defense in the 16th minute when Aguero coolly broke the deadlock after Alvaro Negredo cleverly let Fernandinho's pass run through.

The Argentine doubled City's lead with a header after being left unmarked before West Ham pulled one back through Ricardo Vaz Te, who scored with an acrobatic strike.

But David Silva sealed City's first away win of the season 10 minutes from the final whistle when he found the top corner with a curled shot at the conclusion of a fast break after being set up by Aguero.
