Comments:

West Ham United had now conceded 99 goals in all competitions at the London Stadium (played 68). The Hammers had now lost their last four opening games of a season in the Premier League with an aggregate of one goal scored to 15 conceded. They had now lost 13 of their opening games of a season in the Premier League; more than any other team. This became West Ham United's biggest-ever home defeat in the Premier League; previously 5-1 versus Leeds United on 1 May 1999 and Arsenal on 3 December 2016.

Comments:

This was Manchester City's biggest-ever win in their opening game of a top division season. They became the first team to score five or more goals in their opening game of a Premier League season since Swansea City at Queens Park Rangers in 2012 (also 5-0). Raheem Sterling scored his second hat-trick for City in the Premier League. He became the eighth player to score a hat-trick on the opening weekend of a season in the Premier League and the first since Didier Drogba for Chelsea against West Bromwich Albion in 2011. Raheem Sterling became the fifth player to score 50 or more goals for Manchester City in the Premier League (also Sergio Agüero, Yaya Touré, Carlos Tevez and David Silva). City had now won their last nine opening games of a season in the Premier League. They had now scored five or more goals in eight of their last 51 games in the Premier League.
